WP Video Popup – Responsive YouTube & Vimeo Video Lightbox

Description

WP Video Popup lets you add a responsive YouTube or Vimeo Video lightbox popup to any page or post of your website.

Use the shortcode [ryv-popup video="Embed-URL"] in your post, page or template file to embed your responsive YouTube or Vimeo lightbox popup. To open the popup, add the CSS class ryv-popup to the element you wish to trigger the lightbox.

GDPR Compliance

WP Video Popup is 100% GDPR compliant. No connection to YouTube or Vimeo is established before the trigger element has been clicked.

Page Speed

Embedding videos can slow down your website. With WP Video Popup, the lightbox & video are only being loaded by the click on the trigger element.

Usage

Shortcode to display a vimeo video with autoplay functionality: [ryv-popup video="https://player.vimeo.com/video/136696258?autoplay=1"]
