How do I embed vimeo video? Answered

I'm trying to embed a vimeo video in my Instructable, but when I cut and paste the embed text into it I just see the text, no video. Anyone know how to do this?

Hrm, thanks for the help, I tried the double brackets but I just got an error. Guess I'll have to stick with youtube.

If you follow the instructions linked to above, they should work. They key points are:

1. Get the whole video URL, not just the Vimeo page. It should look like:
http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=......fullscreen=1
2. Convince instructables that it's a movie by adding "&.swf" to the end of the URL.
