Google Tag Manager and Event Tracking (Vimeo videos)

I'm new to Google Tag Manager and I'm trying to get video tracking set up for the embedded Vimeo vids on our site (using the vimeo.ga.js plug-in). There seems to be a conflict with the video code on our site when I try to use the GTM version, perhaps b/c our Wordpress theme requires JQuery 1.12? Has anyone else had a problem with this? Is there an easy work-around? Appreciate the advice!

Hi Melanie :-)
What version of the tracking code is your site currently using? The current version is Universal analytics.js.
I'm assuming you have the analytics tracking setup via GTM - is that correct?

I also notice you mention the vimeo.ga.js plug-in wont be compatible with analytics.js
they both use different syntaxs for event tracking etc.

The following is a current article that hopefully should help you
