Thought i'd share this incase anyone else could use this for automating Vimeo videos (not sim-live events).
Typically we use our CDN's offline video for our loop same embed code for live and offline videos and it just switches for us between events. Super simple and easy when we aren't hosting a service. But I needed a way to run the loop independent of our CDN this week since we will be streaming our Christmas Production to the CDN to record some of the shows at times we aren't going to be streaming the production online. (We are only streaming 2 of the 8 shows).
I came across this thread on vimeo's site https://vimeo.com/forums/help/topic:278001 that allows you to add "?background=1" to the vimeo embed code for the video you want to loop.
The background switch auto plays, turns off all vimeo controls and buttons and branding. But it mutes the audio by default.... we wanted the music of the video loop to play so adding "?background=1&mute=0" as you will find WAY down in the thread mentioned above you can now have a vimeo video auto start with music and loop when its finished all while not displaying any of the vimeo branding on screen.
Enjoy... and i'd love to hear if this helps anyone.
