Using Vimeo with Squarespace

You can connect your Vimeo account to your Squarespace site. This adds a social icon to link to your Vimeo page. You can also add Vimeo videos to your site with the Video Block or as a Cover Page background video.

Note: If you don't have a Vimeo account, sign up here.

Step 1 - Connect your Vimeo account

In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Connected Accounts.

You can also press the ? key while any panel is open and search connected accounts.

Click Connect Account.

Scroll down and select Vimeo from the Social Accounts menu, then log in using your Vimeo username and password. 

Step 2 - Display a Vimeo social icon

You can add a Vimeo social icon that links to your Vimeo profile. 

In Connected Accounts Settings, select your Vimeo account to open Vimeo Settings. Ensure Show Social Icon is checked. 

Note: The Profile URL is automatically set to lead to your Vimeo profile. 

Note: After connecting Vimeo to Squarespace in this step, the social icon will automatically display in most templates, but not all of them. You can also add social icons using the Social Links Block. Learn how these icons display in your template in our template guides

Step 3 - Add a Vimeo video

You can display Vimeo videos in Gallery Pages, Gallery Blocks, and in a Video Block on Regular Pages and blog posts. This is a great way to embed your videos on your site without using third-party widgets. For more information, visit Adding videos to your Squarespace site.

You can also use Vimeo to add a background video to a Cover Page. This creates a looping visual background without sound, customizable with various filters and overlay effects.

  • Vimeo's fullscreen button stays hidden while you're logged into your Squarespace site. To test the fullscreen version of your video, log out or open your site in a private or incognito window
  • Vimeo's player bar displays in the background if you have a Vimeo Basic account. Upgrade to Vimeo Plus or Pro to remove the player bar from your videos.
