Vimeo embed not working

Description

Hi! I'm having difficulty understanding where is the origin of the problem in embedding Vimeo videos into posts or pages on a clean install of WordPress.

What happens?

  • If I paste the Vimeo URL into the text, choose the shortcode format or open the Vimeo Gutenberg block, the message I get is: "Sorry, this content could not be embedded."
  • If I use the iframe code generated by Vimeo and paste it into an HTML block, the player displays with no problem. Everything works fine!

The problem is that I really need to use the Vimeo block because of another application I use that demands it as a requirement. Do you have any idea how I can find the root cause of this problem? Could it be a bug? Vimeo Support tried to help me but they consider an issue in WordPress. Embedding YouTube videos is working perfectly in all modes. It is only with Vimeo that this problem occurs.

Information about my installation:

  • Wordpress 5.7.1
  • PHP 7.3.14
  • MySql 5.7.32-35
  • No new plugins installed
  • No new theme installed

All tests done with a clean web browser (Chrome and Edge).

Thanks in advance!
