    Hi
    Help - The lightbox is playing the wrong video
    I have created a page with just this content from the insert shortcode button:
    [lightbox src="video="http://www.18weeks.net/demopdl2/ccpas/findallreferrals/find-all-referrals-1.mp4""][button] Click Here to Watch the Video [/button][/lightbox]

    The lightbox opens fine, but instead it plays a completely different video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbE8INOjTKM
    which is the ‘Shortcodes Ultimate for WordPress’ Youtube

    you can see it here at:

    Any help gratefully received
    regards

    Hi,

    you're using wrong syntax. Try this code:

    [lightbox src="http://www.18weeks.net/demopdl2/ccpas/findallreferrals/find-all-referrals-1.mp4"][button] Open video [/button][/lightbox]

    Also, you need to know that this video will works only in browsers with HTML5 Video support. Alternatively you can upload your video on YouTube and then use a direct link. This is a crossbrowser solution (even for mobile devices). For example:

    [lightbox src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbE8INOjTKM"][button] Open video [/button][/lightbox]
