Add support for vimeo.com videos

Reported by David Humphrey | January 21st, 2011 @ 09:39 PM | in 0.4

In addition to html5 videos, we need to support other popular video sites, like youtube.com (ticket #140), vimeo, etc.

Vimeo has a limited, but useful js api for embedding and loading videos into an iframe. The embedded flash object have a number of events we can use:

  • onPlay
  • onPause
  • onSeek
  • onProgress

We will have to create a parallel timer object that plays nicely with play/pause/etc in order to support time-based actions; but I think it's doable.

Before we start this ticket, I'd like to know the proper way for going about this, specifically, how do we want to support a youtube/vimeo/xyz video? Ideally the user can provide a URL to a video and it "Just Works."

Do we need a metabug for this that fixes the constructor to handle this and other non-html5 cases?
