Thanks for updating again.

The length getter was already in place but was only working if the short iframe code was used instead of the old-fashioned Flash embed code. I've corrected that.

Thanks!

I just submitted a new video and it works. Thanks!

I did however notice that the length of the video is not automatically set when you validate the embed so I checked and it's also possible to get the duration of the video through the new api.

Good point. I've updated our thumbnail getter.

Do you have an example Vimdeo video to test on?

I noticed that Vimeo's api supports getting a thumbnail for their videos so shouldn't it be easy to automatically get the thumbnail like when we submit Youtube videos?
