adding video to a slideshow

I've been using royalslider for years for slideshows. It has worked great. I wanted to add a video to my slideshow so tried to follow the manual. In the attached simple slide show the image still works fine but the video doesn't load. This is probably due to a simple mistake. Attached is my simple attempt. Is there an obvious problem? Thanks for your help.

    I don't see any mistakes in code that you attached, can you upload full example somewhere? Possibly some file is not included, or the main slider js file is missing video module. Make sure that image paths are correct etc.

    I will include the full example tomorrow when I’m at my computer. I guess that would be the royal slider directory I’m using? Quick question/clarification. The jpg image in my example works just fine. It’s the video that doesn’t play and that is just a Vimeo link on the web that you have in your manual. If I goto to that link on my browser it plays fine. But not in my slider. So maybe that points to the js file not having the video module as you suggest? I haven’t changed the js file for years. Thanks

    It's hard to tell, when I try to use your code - it works. Make sure that the video slide has correct path to cover image as well.

    You’re right. I didn’t have the cover image in the right place. It works! Thanks
