Auto ThickBox Plus
Why can't I use an image as a link to pop-up a youtube video (or other)? (2 posts)

    I installed this and it does work, but I don't understand why I can't use a thumbnail image of a video that than pops up the video into a thickbox. You would think this would just work, but no matter what combination of settings I try, it just pops up a blank window.

    I also wanted to be able to open a thickbox using an image button and tried to wrap the image in the tags and that did the same as above! I had to put it into an <input /> tag to get it to work.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure you are using YouTube "embed" URL & not simple video URL.

    e.g
    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID?&TB_iframe" class="thickbox"><img src="IMG_URL"></a>

    Works fine for me.
