Guide to Vimeo with HiHaHo

Welcome to the guide about Vimeo videos in HiHaHo.
Warning: Vimeo does not work well on iPhones without a Vimeo Pro account. To ensure that your videos have the best quality possible, make sure you connect HiHaHo with your Vimeo account.


Connecting your Vimeo account with HiHaHo

When you connect the two accounts, it will be easier to enrich your Vimeo videos. The advantages of connecting the two accounts are that:

  • you can select a new video from your private videos.
  • HiHaHo can configure the Vimeo video for optimal experience. (see ‘Optimal Vimeo settings’)

Optimal Vimeo settings

To get the best viewing experience for your own videos that are hosted on Vimeo, edit the following settings on Vimeo. You can find these settings when you go to the Vimeo website, and after having logged on, you click on one of your own videos, and then go to settings.


The following settings will make the Vimeo player as minimalistic as possible, meaning it will overlap less with the HiHaHo player.
