Vimeo SEO user playlist html5, social icons and simple php Api for wordpress

Vimeo Playlist SEO with jQuery for WordPress allows you to turn an unordered list of Vimeo links into a video playlist. The php script makes the Vimeo list on a fly and uses the latest Simple Api.

You can choose to make a video playlist from a user with the following options.

videos ,likes ,appears_in ,all_videos ,subscriptions ,album, channel or group

compatible with jquery 1.9x and WP 3.8


There are many options which can be set in the php script and in the jQuery function.
Includes the new html5 player (iframe) if the browser supports html5.
This is the only vimeo script available with search engine optimalisation (SEO) Almost drag and drop.

A great future is that you will only have to set the width of the player and the height settings will be auto adjust

So no more messing with advanced css settings !

All settings are added which are possible with the Vimeo player and the simple api V2.
