Connecting Vimeo Video Embed to CMS Collection


I am attempting to create case studies on my portfolio website. I have a ‘Projects’ template page for each case study. I paid for a Vimeo account and figured out how to get the proper embed code on this template page so that the videos autoplay, loop, have no controls, etc.

I am now trying to edit my embed code so that the video link within it is pulled from the CMS, because I need different videos to show on each template page. I created a link field in the CMS called ‘VIMEO TEST LINK’ and then referenced that field within the embed code in the designer, but when I publish the site that area is greyed out and says ‘Vimeo refused to connect’. I left the original video embed on the page as well called ‘Case Study Video Manual Embed’ for comparison- this version is working just fine, but the ‘Case Study Video Embed with CMS Field’ element is not working.

(‘Take On Wall Street’ template page is the one to reference since that’s where I populated CMS content)

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
