Well, no one here has access to jwplayer.vimeo-3.0.js, or to jwplayer.api.html5.js, or vimeo-3.0.swf. In short, you've given us absolutely nothing to go on.

My crystal ball tells me that it's a Javascript problem. Or maybe a Flash problem. Or maybe the moon is in the seventh house.

Firstly I'd say this is a question for "Electroteque Media" - the guys who produced this 3rd party plugin for JW Player.

Secondly I'd question whether you're using a paid version of the plugin or the demo version?

I suspect its the demo version, and I suspect you've not taken the time to read the documentation - otherwise you might have noticed the following at the bottom of the supporting page:

"This is a non expiring demo version of the plugin. Works only on your local machine on localhost or"

I’ve seen videos hosted by Vimeo working in our player, but I guess it depends on the URL to your content. I tried loading one of your MP4 URLs ( in a browser but I’m not getting a video.

Do you have any Vimeo URLs that do load content?
