either http://actionsforge.com/actions/view/202-vimeo or a markup-item where the “share” code is going into. It is simple iFrame similar to YouTube embed code.

Lesson 1:

Trial is full featured.

Lesson 2 Actions:

Actions are case sensitive. They can be (depends) applied to folder, page, item or can be the object itself. Vimeo is a single object so I would try to insert action-item or something like that.

Lesson 3 Links and pages

Create 2 pages.

Page 1:

Draw a little graphic-item and load an image into it. This we call thumbnail. Select thumbnail, edit → hyperlink and choose page 2.

Page 2

Apply there, as in lesson 1 described, the vimeo video.

… ohhh yeahh - I think I should write a manual.

I understand but on one page I have about 20 thumbnails which should all link to the same page. If I click on the thumbnail the video should play in one and the same videoplayer on that one page. Yopu understand what I want ? I am a newby in Freeway but if I manage to make this is will be for me a reason to buy the pro version and cick out my out to date dreamweaver version.

Open spoken: Not really. My imagination is that low, so without a pointing to an example I can’t do anything.

So personal I can’t see a way to accomplish this and furthermore I do not really see a sense in doing this cause for a visitor it doesn’t matter if the new window is in fact always the same or always a different one.

What I know is, that a single operation shouldn’t be an indicator of what app you should choose for your further work cause things are either possible (for both DW and FW) or for none of them.

In this case I’d probably deal with the spawn new window action (seek actionsforge for it as well) in the overlay mode (something similar to the lightbox or even scriptylightbox2). This would even simulate that a visitor never leaves the thumbnail-page so it’s just like “played on one page”.

But as I said - blind and dumb without a pointer.

Yes you can make a seperate page for every video and link it with the thumbnail. But does that not take up a lot of space at the hosting and does it not make the site slower ?

Sure. Draw an instance of the Iframe Action* where you want the player to be. Name that iframe something distinctive, like ‘player’ using the Name field in the Action’s interface. On each of your thumbnails, add a hyperlink to the Vimeo URL for that movie. You’ll need to do a little detective work to get this URL, and I’ll show you how to do that in a moment. While you’re still in the Hyperlink dialog, set the Target picker to ‘player’ (if that’s what you named your player).

Now, when you click on such a linked thumbnail, the request will be passed over to your player box, and the content will load there. Clicking a different movie will reload the player with a different movie, which will have the nice side-effect of instantly killing playback on the current movie.

To get the URL I am referring to from Vimeo, first navigate to the movie on Vimeo’s site. Then click on the Share button. In the overlay that appears, you should see a box labeled Embed on the right side of the screen. Inside it will be code to generate an iframe. You want to copy that, but only use the content of the src attribute, not the entire blob of code. So for the current home page favorite, you would see this code:

<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/38528247?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="500" height="188" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/38528247">Den Stora Vilan - 'För Långt Ut'</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/joanmanuel">Joan Manuel Urquiaga Valdes</a> on <a href="http://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>

You want to only use this much of it:

http://player.vimeo.com/video/38528247?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0

…only the content of the src=“whatever” attribute. Paste that link into the URL field on the External tab of the Hyperlink dialog, set the Target picker to the name of your player, and you’re done. To speed this up for all 20 of your thumbnails, do the first one long-hand, then copy the entire thumbnail (with the link applied) and paste it 20 times. Update the image in the thumbnail, and edit the URL to the proper Vimeo ID for each movie. Once you do a couple, you’ll get the hang of it.

You have to download and install this Action – it’s not built into the application, unlike a whole lot of Actions that are.
