<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="lib/class.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery-vimeo-cover.js"></script>

2. Embed a specific Vimeo video into the webpage using vimeo-id attribute and assign a cover image using vimeo-placeholder attribute.

<div class="vimeo-cover" 

3. Create a new Vimeo Cover instance.

new VimeoCover($('.vimeo-cover'));

// or multiple instances on the same page
$('.vimeo-cover').each(function(index, el) {
  $vimeoCover = new VimeoCover(el);

4. Change the default selector on initialize.

new VimeoCover($('.vimeo-cover'), {
    selector: '.vimeo-cover'
