Technical Limitations

  • The error icon is rendered with a delay.
    • When inserting an invalid URL on the input field, the error icon and error message are rendered correctly as expected to inform the users. However, the error icon is rendered a tad slower than the error message when they should be rendered at the same time.
  • “Suggested view Vimeo videos” is shown at the end of the playback
    • When playing back Vimeo videos on devices, it is observed that at the end of the playback, the user is seeing a glimpse of the next suggested view of Vimeo videos before proceeding to the next content/item in the playlist. This does not cause a blocker for the end users to proceed to the next item in the playlist, but rather, it is an unwanted view due to the Vimeo user’s account settings.
  • Tizen 4.0 devices playback with the audio even though it has been muted on the card
    • This issue is currently happening for Tizen 4.0 devices only. Even when the user has disabled the audio configuration on the card, the device will playback the Vimeo video with audio enabled.
  • Devices unable to sync content with Vimeo on Multi-zone channel
    • The affected devices failed to sync content with Vimeo Card when it is published to a multi-zone channel and played back on devices with channel browsing. This is a list of affected devices:
          1. Nexus Android TV
          2. AOpen Chromebox
          3. Webex Board
          4. Electron MacOS (Mac mini)
          5. Electron Windows (8G)
          6. Electron Ubuntu
          7. LG WebOS 4.0
          8. LG WebOS 4.1
          9. Mersive
          10. Tizen 4
          11. Tizen 6.5
          12. UWP Surface Pro
          13. Poly X30
          14. Google Meet
  • A black screen is displayed on LG 4.0 devices
    • When playing back a Vimeo card on a multi-zone channel, a black screen can be seen on LG 4.0 devices.
  • Crestron Mercury devices are stuck on playback when the video title is enabled
    • The Crestron Mercury device will be stuck on a loading page when it is trying to playback a Vimeo Card that has the video title enabled. The playback for Vimeo Card with the video title disabled is currently working as expected.
  • Audio configuration is not respected after pasting a new URL
    • The audio is muted after the user has opened a saved card and entered/pasted a new URL while in the card editor mode. This happens after the user has created and saved a Vimeo Card with the audio configuration being disabled at first and then enabled.
  • The CC icon is rendered with a delay
    • The CC icon is rendered with a delay as compared with the settings gear icon and the audio icon. All 3 icons should be rendered at the same time for a smooth user experience.
  • The subtitles’ Language menu is not retained
    • After making changes to the subtitles’ language selection, the menu selection is not retained. The menu selection should be closed only when the user closes the menu explicitly or clicks on any part of the card.
  • Custom URL is not supported
    • Vimeo allows its users to customize the URL for branding purposes. The custom URL may consist of letters or numbers. Currently, when a user enters or pastes a custom URL on the input field, it will be deemed as invalid and an error message will be displayed to the user.
  • The subtitles are not rendered on PWA Browser
    • When the Vimeo Card is the first content or the only (single) content in a playlist, the video’s subtitles will not be rendered in the first playback loop. The subtitles are, however, rendered correctly on the subsequent loop(s). This only happened on PWA browsers.
  • Crestron AM-200 devices are stuck when there is a Vimeo Card assigned to a channel
    • Crestron AM-200 players are stuck when the channel (Playlist/Advance/Multi-zone) contains the Vimeo Card. However, after rebooting the device, it is able to playback the card as expected.
