Adding a Private Vimeo Video

It is a common practice for businesses to use Vimeo to host and manage videos. One of the benefits of Vimeo over YouTube is that it offers better privacy and security options. This allows marketers and content owners to host and manage internal-only videos on Vimeo (e.g. Training Videos). 

One can add a Vimeo video to Enablix using the Add URL option. If the video is public, Enablix shows the embedded view of the video inside the portal and the user can play the video right from portal application. However, if the video is private, Enablix cannot show a preview and cannot play the video.
