Linking Video to a Box Image - I.E. Having it play inside the same box.

If you upload an image to the box, then make the DIV surrounding the image include the video link, it would work. That's how it's done on that site: [code]
[/code] Do you see how they achieved it? Use Firebug to find the CSS for video_embed class on that site.

Is that the easiest way to do it? So I must do it by adding code? I guess this is just over my head here. This code is put in the HTML part of the page, or is it put somewhere else? I can't figure out where the code goes. I need to learn how to use Firebug. If I plug in the code that you gave me and try to work backwards, all that does is put the video and then the picture. I does't marry the two together. So this doesn't mean anything to me either... "then make the DIV surrounding the image include the video link" Ok, so here is another example of the box with the video. I guess you have got the picture by now though. http://www.lamartina.com/en/#!prettyPhoto

Christy, there are plugins, many excellent ones, that can replace our boxes and sliders with ones that use static images as a link to videos. It's strongly advised that you use (and learn) Firebug for Firefox or Chrome's Inspection Tools (pretty much the same things). A pro might be needed if you're seeking to create something custom.
