The external_video Liquid object now supports YouTube and Vimeo videos

Effective February 24, 2021

Update

Shopify now supports adding embedded Vimeo videos to products, leveraging the external_video object.

Many ExternalVideo API implementations assume that all external video objects represent YouTube videos. To avoid any complications arising from this change, version 2021-01 and earlier of our APIs don't return ExternalVideo objects that represent Vimeo videos.

You can access Vimeo videos using the unstable version of our APIs. We will also be introducing the ability to detect the video host in 2021-04.
