JIMPIX

About Jimpix

Jimpix.co.uk is a small independent website based in North-West England. I started it in December 1999.

I run the site as a hobby, as it's a fun place to learn about web technology and to have a tinker with username generator related stuff as I like silly word combinations.

What about the ecards?

From about 2000 to 14th November 2022 the site included the option to send ecards. However, that option was removed as usage dropped to the level where it wasn't worth continuing to run that side of the site.

10108-Aug-2020cat:ecardsWhen creating new ecards from Vimeo, I used to extract the data from the video using XML, such as in <a href="https://vimeo.com/api/v2/video/443856794.xml">this example URL</a>, for this <a href="https://www.vimeo.com/443856794">video</a>. However, that method is now deprecated (https://help.vimeo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042975791-Deprecated-APIs-libraries-and-upload-methods). Instead, there is a new method called oEmbed (https://developer.vimeo.com/api/oembed/videos). I changed to using JSON to get the video data, so a sample URL is <a href="https://vimeo.com/api/oembed.json?url=https%3A%2F%2Fvimeo.com%2F443856794">here</a>.
