    Hey guys,
    I was working with Fancybox (which just got upgraded to 2.0!) and decided to tackle Vimeo integration. Heres my solution.
    (note, i am using wordpress functionality and timthumb to display the image, just a heads up in case you copy/paste the code)
    PHP code



      $feed = "http://vimeo.com/api/v2/[YOUR_USERNAME]/videos.xml";
      $videos = simplexml_load_file($feed);
      $i = 0;
      foreach($videos->video as $video){
      //var_dump($video);
      if ($i > 0 && $i < 11){
      $vurl = $video->id;
      $vsmall = $video->thumbnail_medium;
      ?>
    • " class="various">

    • $i++;
      } ?>



    Javascript (with fancybox already loaded).


    jQuery(".various").fancybox({
    maxWidth : 790,
    maxHeight : 455,
    fitToView : false,
    closeClick : false,
    openEffect : 'none',
    closeEffect : 'none'
    });

    I used no open or close effects because I tended to see a weird white flash when the video was loading if i used open and close effects. Also, you want to set the closeClick to false so you dont have people trying to pause the video and accidentally closing it. I also didnt put the videos into a group as the left arrow blocks the play button
