Simple and Clean

This is a fantastic, simple plug-in that does exactly what I want: enable short codes to embed individual YouTube videos that will pop-up in a "lightbox" type display. Just copy the short code from the description page here, paste it into your WordPress page/post, change data for video ID and anchor, and you're done! Thanks for such a great plug-in!

Works great!

No issues or conflicts for me!

Took me a bit to figure out I could change the thumbnail image simply with css.

Great stuff
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have used this plugin on a few different sites. It works great, looks really polished and it's amazingly free.

I just discovered that it is possible to use it to make a video pop out of link text- which is not listed in their tutorial I don't think. Here is the shortcode example using vimeo...
[video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id="YOURVIDEONUMBER" width="640" height="480" anchor="click here to open vimeo video"]

Probably YouTube would work too using the same concept.

Also, check their tutorial to learn how to use the lightbox for images too (using html and not shortcodes)

By the way, there is one problem that I have found with this plugin. sometimes when the video lightbox overlaps another video the border of the lightbox gets hidden. Something to consider if you are planning to have a bunch of vids on one page. Otherwise awesome plugin.

Cheers

Great plugin. Integrating with ACF was a breeze. A beauty of a combination. Plays nicely with other plugins as well. Cheers!
