youtube lightbox help (1 post)

    I want to find a plugin that will allow me to link text to a youtube video, so when you click on the text, it opens the video in a lightbox format.

    I can't find this anywhere. I can find youtube embedding plugins obviously, where the thumbnail of the video is on my page, you click on it, and it plays directly on the page without opening in a lightbox. Or I can find lightbox plugins, but there is no option to link the video to text in the page, the only option these plugins allow is a thumbnail of the video.

    The closest thing I have found to what I am looking for is the Youtube with Fancy Zoom plugin, but there is an error with the titles. The title displays 3 times in the lightbox window that pops up, as you can see here if you click on the first video: http://www.gopiplus.com/work/2010/07/18/youtube-with-fancy-zoom/#.UHouwI4pjpM

    If anyone has suggestions for editing the code to display the title only once for this plugin, and to link it to text rather than a thumbnail, I would greatly appreciate it!

    If not, any suggestions of a different plugin would be great.
