Video lightbox + shortcodes + mobile first
By ,

Has anyone tried to find other plugins answering simple requests such as:
lightbox has got to be responsive and usable via smartphones too
shortcodes are my best friends
video are a thing just like images
Thanks for this one, and still almost the only excluding CodeCanyon's.

Not working well with an Android. Video does not resize or rotate on andriod

It just works!

Struggled with many, many other lightbox plugins, CSS and jquery approaches. Was running out of time to get a site launched and found this plugin and yes, it just works (Cross-browser and, most importantly, on both iOS and Android phones and tablets).

Great work.

Simple to Implement/Lack of Control
By , for WP 3.9.1

First, thank you to the developer - I'm pretty savvy and this is the only plugin I found that was simple to implement and worked well.

Am using it for an external link to a web page.
Pros: Simple, Works, Easy to Install and Use.
Cons: The lightbox seems to have a lot of space on top of the page and on the bottom making scrolling go beyond the linked webpage. No control over background colour and opacity (which are the two things I would like) or width, etc.

But the main thing is it worked when I spent hours on others that were recommended work and didn't work.

Thank you naa986 for providing a plugin that works - that's the important part.
