    WP Video Lightbox

    Add to List

    The WordPress Video Lightbox plugin allows you to embed videos on a page using lightbox overlay display.

    This plugin can be used to display images, flash, YouTube, Vimeo, iFrame etc in a lightbox overlay. The embedded videos can be viewed on iPhone and iPad too.

    Embedding Vimeo Video

    You can embed a vimeo video using the following shortcode in a WordPress post or page:

    [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id="13562192" width="640" height="480" anchor="click here to open vimeo video"]
    [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id="13562192" width="640" height="480" anchor="http://www.example.com/images/vimeo-thumb.jpg"]
    

    You need to replace the value of “video_id” with your actual vimeo video ID. When a user clicks on the anchor text/image your vimeo video will pop up in lightbox.

    Embedding YouTube Video

    You can embed a YouTube video using the following shortcode in a WordPress post or page:

    [video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg" width="640" height="480" anchor="click here to open YouTube video"]
    [video_lightbox_youtube video_id="G7z74BvLWUg" width="640" height="480" anchor="http://www.example.com/images/youtube-thumb.jpg"]
