Client requesting a Custom HTML, need advice.
on Nov 15, 2012 at 7:21:45 pm

I finished a video for a client and provided a QT and he just asked:

"can you provide a custom HTML on Vimeo so that you can embed it on your website?"

Not sure what he means here, he said he had done that before on a hosting site called Wistia and I guess he wants me to do it on my Vimeo site?

I appreciate any advice, I'm using FCP-6

Thanks

Vimeo provides embed code for a universal player on their site...

Follow these instructions:

Thanks Harrison. But I don't want his videos on my site. Wouldn't they appear on my site if I do the embedding there? Should I have him start his own Vimeo site?

You know how sometimes a person might say, "You can get a spare gas tank that hooks fight up to your outboard motor and you can stay out fishing all day"? Well, you have neither a fishing boat nor an outboard motor, but you still get the message.

Could his be the case in your client's instance? If there's any doubt in your mind, you could just verify it with the client. Call it additional customer service or something... and suggest how it might serve the client better if the link was on HIS web site.

Dave,

Is it possible for me to "host" it on my Vimeo site yet visitors to my site won't actually see it? In that case I'm OK with it.

Thank you,

Sorry, can't answer that, don't know enough about the workings of vimeo.

But I can tell you that if I were the client, and I paid to have the video made, I'd darned sure want to be able to see it on MY site where it will help ME more, and not relegate it some site run by the hired help...

...sorry about that crack, just trying to think like a client.

Oh, and here's some more client-thinking: if I were the client, I suppose I could have that editor guy work with my web people to get MY video put on MY web site and not have it break the bank. Maybe they could figure out a special page where all of MY videos go, but they're really linked to some place like Vimeo.

I think to have it on your site and not visible to others it can be password protected but that makes it difficult to then link from another website without people having to use a password.

If your client has their own web site then why can't they embed the video as a Flash or HTML5? If they have a webmaster then I would talk to them. Otherwise the client should set up their own Vimeo site and upload to that where they will be given the HTML link code to embed. Setting up a Vimeo site isn't exactly difficult. Once setup they can give you the login details to upload the video.

As Michael say.
If you restrict the video to be watched on your Vimeo site, will also be restricted to be played from the website is embed.


[Michael Gissing] "If your client has their own web site then why can't they embed the video as a Flash or HTML5? If they have a webmaster then I would talk to them. Otherwise the client should set up their own Vimeo site and upload to that where they will be given the HTML link code to embed. "
Right that.
If your client prefers to host the video on Vimeo, tell him to open a Vimeo PLUS account, otherwise the clip will be recompressed after a short period of time and the quality will decrease.

No. I suggest you create a new Vimeo (or YouTube) account in your client's name and host it from there - get their permission for this, obviously. That's the only way you can do it properly (for free).
