Vimeo is for showing off your creative skills. Most Visual Effects professionals publish their reels there. Lots of photographers upload their time-lapse videos. It's the home of the best GoPro videos. And the list goes on. There is just more professional content than on YouTube, and a reason for that is the excellent quality and the great community. Time to let go of counting views and hitting interruptive ads. You have several options to show content from Vimeo through RSS Feeds. Justified Image Grid creates an automatically-updated Vimeo gallery on your WordPress site, effortlessly.

What videos are available to source a Vimeo gallery?
- Any user's videos and/or likes.
- Your profile specific feeds: Subscriptions, Shares and Watch Later.
What are the specific options for a Vimeo gallery?
- Display up to 25 videos (this is a limit imposed by the RSS feeds of Vimeo).
- Provide an optional link back to the original video page on Vimeo. You can change the text of this link.
- Play the videos in the lightbox or navigate to Vimeo directly (same tab or new tab).
Please note that currently Vimeo's feeds are broken in a way that they don't include title and description (they used to). Also they have malformed XML, so JIG uses a workaround to still show them (coming soon in v4.0.2 - beta available).
