I am trying to create chaper links for my Vimeo videos on my site. I have managed to get a script working with direct links but cannot get it to work with a drop-down menu.

Here is my code:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.4/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="https://f.vimeocdn.com/js/froogaloop2.min.js"></script>


 var link_1_track = 26;
 var link_2_track = 75;
 var link_3_track = 103;
 var link_4_track = 170;
 var link_5_track = 188;
 var link_6_track = 226;
 var link_7_track = 265;
 var link_8_track = 299;
 var link_9_track = 382;
 var link_10_track = 420;
 var link_11_track = 445;
 var link_12_track = 458;
 var link_13_track = 489;
 var link_14_track = 534;

 var iframe_player = jQuery('#player')[0];
 var player = $f(iframe_player);

 function setupLinks() {

    jQuery(".link_1").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_1_track);

    jQuery(".link_2").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_2_track);

    jQuery(".link_3").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_3_track);

    jQuery(".link_4").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_4_track);

    jQuery(".link_5").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_5_track);

    jQuery(".link_6").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_6_track);

    jQuery(".link_7").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_7_track);

    jQuery(".link_8").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_8_track);

    jQuery(".link_9").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_9_track);

    jQuery(".link_10").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_10_track);

    jQuery(".link_11").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_11_track);

    jQuery(".link_12").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_12_track);

    jQuery(".link_13").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_13_track);

    jQuery(".link_14").click(function () {
        player.api('seekTo', link_14_track);

The video is for testing purposes only, I have no affiliation with the channel Todesarten.

In my code I have added both the direct clickable links and also the drop-down menu so you can see both. As you can see if you click any of the links directly the video goes to the relevant chapter but the drop-down menu does not work at all. If I add a normal http link in the drop-down menu the page will redirect to the correct url but it's just not working with the script.

Can anyone help me with this so I can get the drop-down to work? Thank you very much.

I have just noticed that the drop-down menu actually works in Firefox and also IE.

The issue seems to be with Chrome and also Safari (on iPhone/iPad)

Also I only want the drop-down menu to work. The hard links are there just to show that the chapters work. Afterwards I will be deleting the links and just keeping the drop-down menu.
