Web Object not displaying (vimeo)

I have a vimeo video linked in my course and when I "preview" it before publishing, I can see a play arrow over the video. When I render the file and play it in the LMS, I get web object text with embed code (see attached). When I click on the text on the screen, the video will play but it looks like an error so I don't think people will click on it?

I have tried changing the video to play automatically and on click, with the same error. I have searched the forums without any real answers. Any suggestions?

The embed code in your screenshot seems to have a couple of typos. I tried this code here:

<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/188546437?autoplay=1" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen=""></iframe> and it worked for me when I published it. Also, your LMS might block videos from other URLs.

Hm... seems to work fine. Thanks for testing this for me. What I don't understand is when I get the error that is shown on the image I attached and I click on the text on the screen, the video will play but it looks like an error so I don't think people will click on it? It doesn't look like a normal embed video. 

I will retry later tonight. You didn't do anything different than change the embed code?
