Why am I seeing an error message?
Vimeography uses several different error messages to notify you of an issue that needs corrected.
the plugin did not retrieve data from the Vimeo API! connect() timed out!
This usually means that Vimeo is having some network issues. Follow @Vimeo on twitter for updates. If Vimeo is not reporting any issues, you’ll need to contact your host and ask why you are unable to connect to Vimeo’s IP address. It may be that your host has blocked server access via a firewall.
