Embedded video not center-aligning

    I’m trying to embed a Vimeo video on my website, but am running into some difficulties. When I use this shortcode:

    [vimeo https://vimeo.com/123456789 w=1280&h=720]

    (I’m using a fake vimeo number here for anonymity)

    It doesn’t automatically embed/display the video. Instead, it literally just displays the text “[vimeo https://vimeo.com/123456789 w=1280&h=720]”

    So… I tried another method.

    I copy/pasted the full embed code from Vimeo, which is:

    [vimeo 373656269 w=640 h=360]

    And that at least displays the video. However, whenever I adjust the width/height ratio (I’m changing it from 640×360 to 1280×720), it shoves the video to the right of the screen. I tried to remedy this by using this before/after the embed code:

    //my embed code

    When that didn’t work, I tried this…

    <p style=”text-align:center;”>

    //my embed code


    And yet it does nothing, as my video still remains shoved to the right.

    Forgive me, as I’m extremely new to WordPress and coding, etc.
