Video embedding for sources such as Vimeo

I have had success using the standard Video control for YouTube content, as simple as setting "media = <myURL>"

The new Stream Video control works well with Stream, as simple as setting "StreamURL = <my URL>"

 

I've tried and failed to get Vimeo videos working with the original video control. No error, just nothing to see.

 

All of my content (200+) videos are on Vimeo. Has anyone ever tried to embed Vimeo content?

 

And for bonus points, why would a simple YouTube URL work but an equally simple Vimeo URL NOT work?

I'm guessing some behind-the-scenes hacks for YT, or firewall issues blocking content from non-sanctioned sources.

Hi Tom,

 

Looking through this it seems likely that Vimeo uses different video encoding which probably isn't compatible with PowerApps. This might be a better question for Microsoft Support to look through, you can always create a ticket with them and see if this is a known issue.

Accepting as a "solution" in order to close this thread. It looks like it will be impossible to embed Vimeo content in PowerApps. Note that documentation references YouTube as specifically supported, and not any generic video URL. The most recent update was to add support for Microsoft Stream video content. Good enough for me at this time.
