The first step is to generate your own Vimeo API token. Generate the token, and then copy it and paste it into the .env in Glitch.

Almost done, go to the basic example under examples/basic.html and change the video id in line 77 to your Vimeo video id. It should look like

    vimeoPlayer = new Vimeo.Player(vimeo_video_id, { autoplay: false });

Streaming Vimeo videos requires video file access via the Vimeo API. Accessing video files is limited to Vimeo Pro and Business customers.
