Procure Eminence Theater


The Procure Eminence Theater allows your viewers to focus their attention by fading out the background and making the current YouTube video the central object. All videos will be listed in one place for convenience and each video loads asynchronously, meaning there are no more page refreshes. Since videos don’t load until they’re clicked on, the initial load time per page will be reduced when compared to the same page using YouTube’s embed code. Please refer to the list below for other key features and benefits.


  • Animated opening and closing of the Procure Eminence Theater.
  • Easy to add YouTube videos – Copy links from YouTube and paste them into the Theater admin page.
  • Add custom titles to each video.
  • Autoplay – Play videos as soon as they load.
  • Suggested YouTube videos – Show suggested videos when the current video finishes.
  • HTTPS – Encryption of data to prevent “Mixed Content” warnings on HTTPS enabled websites.
  • Privacy-Enhanced mode – Restrict YouTube’s ability to set cookies for your viewers.
  • Theater background opacity – Adjusts the background transparency. (3 settings: Light, dark and solid black.)
  • Videos automatically resize based on current browser window size.
  • Videos open without requiring a page refresh.
  • Works with these web browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE8+.
