Easy FancyBox
Video links not loading (4 posts)

    Hi, I searched through the forums and tried a bunch of stuff, but no results, so I am posting this.

    My website has video links that don't load- pictures (jpg) work fine, but for videos I get a neverending spinning gif. I tried Vimeo & Youtube, on different browsers.

    The site is here:
    I am doing different testing/dev on it currently.

    The only plugin installed is Easy Fancybox.

    Appreciate your help.

    Your theme is incompatible with Easy FancyBox (or any other FancyBox plugin) because it has the FancyBox script already included. Deleting the fancybox.js and easing.js files is not enough (plus, it creates script not found errors) because there is also code in et-ptemplates-frontend.js that interferes with proper operation.

    Man that sucks. So there's no way around it at all?

    Yes, but you need to make a choice:

    1. Disable my plugin and stick with the version included in your theme. You can give Youtube or Vimeo links a class="et_video_lightbox" attribute to make them use FancyBox. Alternatively use class="fancybox iframe" to force iframe mode.


    2. Keep the plugin and hack your theme and remove all references to the fancybox.js files (in functions.php or header.php) and all FancyBox related stuff from the et-ptemplates-frontend.js file...

    I'd try option 1 first. Good luck :)
