iBlogPro5: Video embedded in Boxes or opened in lightbox from boxes?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm using Wordpress 3.3, Framework 2.0.1, and iBlogPro5 5.0.9. URL: http://brasesco.com/ I'm having trouble embedding video in Boxes - either to play within the box itself or to launch a lightbox/fancybox with the video content. I've spent hours looking in the Forum but all discussions seem to die out without being answered: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/11553/iframe-video-in-fancybox-via-box-link/p1 http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/14375/boxes-with-video/p1 http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/13551/inserting-video-in-1-of-my-3-box-in-home-page/p1 http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/13363/show-video-in-boxes/p1 I'm using the "Fancybox for Wordpress" plugin successfully in other applications on the site. I have tried embed plugins like "Embedly" and "Embedded Video" without success with my boxes. It seems @cutactionmedia figured it out here: http://cutactionmedia.com/ but I can't figure out what the final solution was.

Hi Brasesco, I don't think he is using any kind of plug-in or custom code. He is simply using an image in the box but the boxes link points to this: http://player.vimeo.com/video/29692704?byline=0 This as far as I can see opens the video in a fancybox/lightbox style popup window. I don't use Vimeo, so I'm not sure if this is a feature they offer. However, I have added this to the feature request trac for you.

Please search our forums, before posting!

I was able to get lightbox from the box elements to work with the plugin "Easy FancyBox". Still would be nice for a more feature-rich embed feature in the boxes.
