Making a YouTube Link open in a single window

Recommended Posts

http://www.christycollins.com/?page_id=1438 I suppose this may not be directly a wordpress question, but any help will be greatly appreciated. I want to make the video link on this page open in a single video player window and not take you directly into youtube's site. Or I would like to be able to be able to click on the photo and the video play in that box. This may be an impossible request but maybe you can just even tell me if it is possible. I currently don't like how, even though the link opens in a new window, it still takes you into a youtube web page. I just want the video to pop up in a single box. Like an embedded video file.

The plugin Shadowbox (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shadowbox-js/) allows you to add a video so that it pops up in a little window on the same page.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Do you know if that will work with a youtube link, or a video that is already in youtube or do you have to load it into a wordpress video gallery?
