As the title to this post states one must use a different bit of embed code to embed vimeo clips. The embed code provided with vimeo clips doesn’t work with wordpress.com sites but you can simply use this bit of code [ vimeo vimeo.com/123456 ] described originally here. You simply need to replace the number with the unique number in the url of the vimeo clip you wish to embed and also remove the blank spaces between the []’s. If I were to do so here the code would disappear and show the vimeo clip so the spaces are left in this example to prevent this from happening.
