    Does this plugin work with YouTube or Vimeo videos? And do I need to specify the height and width? I keep keep getting this message: Request unsuccessful: error

    Nevermind, got it fixed. I forgot to add class="lbpModal".

    Can you let me know exactly where that class goes?

    I get the same error.

    <div class="lbpModal" style="padding:0px 0px 50px 0px;">
    		<a href="http://youtu.be/whatever" rel="lightbox[testID|testfilename]"><img align="left" src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/img/trailer.png" alt="Watch the video trailer"/></a></div>

    Thanks very much.

    Figured it out.

    Anyone with the same issue, follow the instructions carefully under Secondary Lightbox in the Demos (not FAQ) section of the 23Systems site:

    Could a mod please delete my first post on this page, or the code within that post? The YouTube link in that code is now feeding back to the "As Seen On" part of the YouTube page with a link to this forum post, and that's not desired by the uploaders of that video. I don't mean to hijack their YouTube video with a post here.

    It would be much appreciated!

    I've also added a resolution in my second post for anyone with the same issue.

    In order to start setting up the video as per bbolkowy's instructions, first thing to do is check the "Use Secondary Lightbox" checkmark (way at the bottom), which will create a second set of settings, which you will then be working with.

    Took me a few minutes to figure this out.
