Vimeo’s new HTML5 video player

19 Aug 2010

Vimeo is unleashing what they call their “Universal Player” which translates into new embed code for publishers that put Vimeo videos on their own sites. The old embed code would link directly to a Flash version of the videos. The new version will detect what device is being used and serve up the best video player (Flash or HTML5).

In other news, Vimeo has also teamed up with Roku so you can watch Vimeo videos on your HDTV.

And finally, they’ve added a “Watch Later” button that will allow you to bookmark videos for future viewing.

It’s a brave new world.
