Hello Rodger...

Usually in the top right corner of the video there is a share icon, use that then copy the resulting "Embed" code. Then you can use the HTML widget to insert it, on your site/page where you like. There is also a "Customize embeded option" just below.

If you want the actual video you'll need use software to copy/download it, but I don't think your suppose to.

Hi Boris,

Not sure why you can't load the tutorial but here it is:

Adding Vimeo and other video services

If you have found a video you would like to add to your page that's on another video-sharing site, you can copy the HTML embed code provided and add it to your page. This example shows you how to add a video from vimeo.com. Visit vimeo.com and choose the video you would like to add to your Yola site. Then follow these steps:

Click on the "Embed" button. A dialog box will open with code that you can copy (copy it by highlighting the code, and using ctrl-C or right-click > copy).
Back on your site, drag and drop the HTML Code Widget onto your page (located in Widgets > Popular, the icon for this is a blue sphere).
The HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use ctrl-V to paste or right-click > paste).
When you are done, click "Save" and you will see the video appear on your page.
