WP jQuery Lightbox
[resolved] Video support (3 posts)

    I have come to prefer this lightbox plugin over any other because of its clean, minimal design. However, I would like an option to load iframe content like videos in the lightbox too.

    Is there any way I can easily implement such a feature for this plugin?

    I basically want what is presented in this tutorial. It looks like a very easy thing to implement. However, as I'm not a coder myself, I was kinda overwhelmed when I looked through the java script for this plugin, and I couldn't figure any way to implement that relevant bit of code into the script.

    My vision is to have a video gallery that functions exactly as a regular WordPress gallery, with the lightbox feature implemented for a visually pleasing presentation with responsiveness. Although, I'm not quite sure how this could be done yet...

    My vision is now nearing its completion, as the visual motion page now features thumbnails with anchored video (made possible with love from WP Gallery Custom Links).

    All that remains now is to make the videos load into the lightbox, instead of being redirected to YouTube. I just need a simple solution to be able to implement this into WP jQuery Lightbox, unless someone may know of another lightbox which already has this feature, as long as it 1) has the exact same visual apperance as WP jQuery Lightbox (whether that be easily implemented as a skin), and 2) is fully responsive.

    I've been looking forever to actually find a lightbox which fulfills this criteria. With no luck thus far, I would appreciate if anyone could help me bring this vision into completion.

    jQuery Lightbox is extremely unlikely to add videos or any other content than images. Look for another plugin if this is important to you.
