Hi, Not quite sure what you mean. Are you suggesting that you wish to click on a box and a YouTube/Vimeo video will popup, is this correct ?

Are you using a plugin for your lightbox? Most of these have shortcodes that you can use.

That should work but I'm not sure how it would appear inside the box. Does the plugin apply an image or something on a site where the shortcode is placed? If so, what size is that?

What size is the image that's added? Does it match the size of the video? That would break the box or just not show up.
