Custom Thumbnail for embedded Vimeo/Youtube video

I am searching for 20 days on internet and can't find the answer. just to be clear I am not looking for video lightbox, I am looking to see how can I use a custom thumbnail as a video warpper, like the attached photo. I want to see a custom thumbnail and when I click on it I want the video to player in the exact same position.

many thanks for your help.

    Would love this but as a tempory bodge workaround could you layer a custom image on top of the video and use intereactions to hide the image once clicked?
