ScreenCloud Vimeo App Guide

The easiest way to play videos from Vimeo on your digital screens.

Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Vimeo guide here.

The ScreenCloud Vimeo app makes it easy to stream videos from Vimeo to your digital screens. Select videos by channel, user, album, or page and easily add them to your playlists and schedules with ScreenCloud. This allows you to play rich video content that your audience can watch while eating, drinking, waiting, or working in your office, bar, restaurant, or school.

With the ScreenCloud Vimeo app you can:

  • Play a live stream on any video that’s published publicly on Vimeo
  • Add a Vimeo video, album, channel, or user page.
  • Choose the duration of playback for your videos

Here's how it works:

Frequently asked questions

Can I use the Vimeo app offline?

No, the Vimeo app needs an internet connection to allow it to live to stream the videos from Vimeo.

Can I use Vimeo in landscape or portrait mode?

Yes, the Vimeo app supports both landscape and portrait modes.

My video is not playing on a loop, how can I fix this?

Please note, in order to get your video to loop while using it for digital signage - please add the code &loop=1 at the end of your URL. For example, the URL would read "https://vimeo.com/191084739&loop=1", which will make this loop when being used by itself or in a playlist.
