Vimeo Videos are Down? Anyone else?

Anyone else seeing this message for videos from Vimeo? Pretty annoying when you are trying to host a video learning hub. Hmm :thinking: Maybe need to find a more reliable way to store videos. First time in the last year that they have had an issue though. Not too bad.

Error: “Sorry. Because if its privacy settings, this video cannot be played here.”

Add this to your page headers:

<meta name="referrer" content="origin">

We ran into the same and Vimeo noticed Bubble is sending a “no referrer” tag, which prevents Vimeo from seeing the domain and thus videos with domain restrictions will run into this issue.

I sent a bug report to see why this was happening all the sudden, but the tag above in page headers resolved it for us.


Thanks so much @romanmg, who would have thought. I will try this now. Thanks! Good lookin out! :raised_hands:

Hey @J805 ,

We experienced the same issue and the Vimeo team was quick to respond with the solution as @romanmg shared. Vimeo has done us really well over the years, and it’s likely a recent change that caused the break. :slight_smile:


Thank you so much for sharing the solution! It fixed the issue.
