I am using thickbox to pop open my content. here is my code:

//hidden until popup happens
<div id="youtubeplayer-20" style="display:none;">
<iframe src="" width="550" height="309" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe>

<a href="#TB_inline?height=309&width=550&inlineId=youtubeplayer-20" class="thickbox" title="Video Introduction"><br />
<img src="video-image1.png" alt="" title="intro" width="280" height="159" class="alignleft size-full wp-image-11546" /></a>

Because I have the vimeo video set to autoplay (autoplay=1), when you page loads, it plays the video in the background which means the content is being load before the popup is launch.

Is there anyway to only load the iframe content in the popup to load after it has pop up?
