  • Resolved Thea G


    I want to have a library of videos, up to 100 at a time and I don’t want each one to be embedded on the page. I have set up a custom post-type with a meta box called ‘video’ . (Every video has it’s own post, providing a description and/or transcript of the movie.)
    Then a list of the posts are available for the viewer to pick and choose. I just want video links, not embedded movies to appear on this page. Oh, and this is wayyy faster.

    In the loop-archive template I use this:

    $movie = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'video', true);
    if ( $movie ) {
        echo '<a href="/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/player/player.swf?file='.$movie.'" rel="shadowbox;width=400;height=224"> video </a> ';

    My question is if there is a better way to use links, perhaps a “built-in to the plug-in” method that I am missing.

    I am using shadowbox-js to pop-up the JW-player instead of using a custom player (since I couldn’t get it to work).
