⚠️ Blackberry and Windows phone users: You may still able to view Vimeo videos on devices that support HTML5; however, we do not test out our player in these environments and thus cannot guarantee support.

⚠️Samsung users: The Samsung Internet browser (all versions) is not supported for Vimeo Live. We recommend installing Chrome instead.
