This members-only tutorial provides the steps to display a grid of Vimeo video thumbnails (fetched using Vimeo's oEmbed API) with the titles and URLs taken from a Advanced Custom Fields' Repeater field in Oxygen.



We shall use GLightbox so that clicking on a thumbnail will autoplay that video in a lightbox with left and right arrows to go to previous and next videos.
