    Hi All!

    First of all, I love JotForm! It is an excellent tool!

    However I have questions about how to embedd a Vimeo video into a form that will be published on a Facebook Page.

    In the form I am building I have inserted a Free text (html) into the form canvas where I have pasted the embedding code from Vimeo. Everything works fine when I use JotForms embed form code for Dreamweaver.

    However, when using JotForms embed form code for Facebook and put it in my Facebook Page FBML the video does not show. I have tried both the "old" code and the iFrame code that Vimeo provides.

    Is there any way around to sucessfully embedd a video in a form for Facebook Page? Would this work better with YouTube or if I have the video hosted externally on my own server?

    Million thanks for all kind of tips and advices!

    Best regards, Sammet

    My guess is that Facebook does not allow that vimeo code. Did you try it standalone? I mean, did you try putting the vimeo video to a facebook page alone?
