Byddwch yn cael cais i fewngofnodi i Vimeo pan fyddwch yn clicio ar y botwm Gweld Ar-lein. Os nad oes gennych gyfrif Vimeo eisoes, gallwch gofrestru ar gyfer un Sylfaenol (am ddim). Byddant yn gofyn am eich enw, cyfeiriad e-bost a chyfrinair. Peidiwch â defnyddio eich cyfrinair Aber --- You will be prompted to log in to Vimeo when you click the View Online button. If you don't already have a Vimeo account, you can register for a Basic (free) one. They will request your name, an email address and a password. Please do not use your Aber password.
