    I have heard about problems with flash and pdf in FancyBox on an ipad before. Sadly, I do not own an iPad to actually see it happen. Nor can I tell you what goes wrong here. The iPad does not use flash to display movies on maybe? Is it HTML5 embedding being used there?

    You might get an answer on the FancyBox support forum

    Thanks for writing back Ravan.

    I now see that it works ok on the ipad in a normal post using the embed link which is an iframe. i’m not sure how to utilize it with easy fancybox …

    current fancybox link:

    <img class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-103″ title=”play video” src=”” alt=”” width=”965″ height=”332″ />

    vimeo embed iframe that works in a post (but which i’m not sure how to use with fancybox):

    <iframe src=”″ width=”800″ height=”450″ frameborder=”0″></iframe>

    Thanks again for your assistance! The plugin looks great!

    That’s interesting… Try this:

    1. Enable iFrame support on the Settings > Media admin page

    2. Set dimensions 800 x 450 x 0 for it (or other width / height / border if you like)

    3. Use this code in your post (remove the spaces after each ‘<‘):

    < a href="" class="fancybox-iframe">< img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-103" title="play video" src="" alt="" width="965" height="332" />< /a>

    4. Let me know if that works 🙂

    Worked like a charm.

    Because the Vimeo iframe embed is HTML5 compatible, it is showing up perfectly on the iPad now.

    Thanks for the help Ravan. Will put some $ in the tip jar right away!

    Any contribution will be much appreciated! 🙂

    Hi Ravan

    I am in a similar situation. I got something working but my problem is that when the page loads the vimeo video launches. I would like the page to load and then the user clicks the lick to launch the fancybox.

    I copied this code you suggested above and still I have the same problem. Can you think what I can add to prevent this?

    test page;

    Hi John, check the Easy FancyBox settings on Settings > Media. You have set the value for “Auto-trigger” to “First iFrame link”… Set it to “None” or “Manual” to disbable the behaviour.

    Flipping brilliant! Ta.
