Overlay youtube embedded video with image, hide image when clicked and autoplay

I would like to display an image before viewing a youtube video in my page.
Is there a way to do this with jquery or a javascript function.

I want to overlay this with my own image and when clicked, display the video and autoplay it, all wihtout reloading the page.

Thank you for your help

Regards
Judi
