I have a puzzling problem with my website’s Vimeo player integration. When I visit my production site in Chrome, the Vimeo player instantly gets a Google Cast button. It’s peculiar that this issue is unique to Chrome and isn’t present in my local development environment.
I’m eager to figure out how to stop users from seeing the Google Cast button when they visit my production site’s Vimeo player. It is imperative to preserve a uniform user experience and steer clear of introducing any unforeseen components to the player interface.
Right now, I’m playing videos in a React component using the @vimeo/player module.
Yeah! it can be confusing when a Google Cast button appears on the Vimeo player in Chrome, only on the production website and not in the local development environment.
Let’s explore some ideas and perspectives to address this problem
Solution 1: Configuring the Vimeo Player
Examine your Vimeo player configuration first. There are occasionally options in Vimeo’s embed settings to turn off particular components or functionality. It’s likely that the Google Cast button has an option that can be disabled. If this behavior is out of control, check the configuration options you are using to embed the player.
Solution 3: Focused CSS Styling
It’s a positive move that you made an initial attempt to hide the Google Cast button using CSS. But occasionally, a more focused strategy is required. To get the button element’s class or ID, use the developer tools in your browser. Next, write CSS rules that are particularly directed to that element.
It may be necessary to use! important in your CSS declarations to guarantee that your rules take precedence.
I hope this may help you.
Is there someone who can advise me on which particular API call to use?
// Assuming you have a Vimeo player instance
const player = new Vimeo.Player(/* your player options here */);
// Use the setOption method to hide the Google Cast button
This will turn off the player’s Google Cast button. Try it out and see if it fixes the problem for you.
