I am running WP Lightbox Ultimate v2.0.9, in WordPress 3.8.1, with Headway Theme.
I am trying to play a video from my Amazon s3 and Cloudfront account. This is my shortcode: [wp_lightbox_ultimate_amazon_s3_cloudfront video=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/othersvideos/Bad+Advisors.mp4″ domain=”s135tlfi8x4bga.cloudfront.net” width=”640″ height=”480″ title=”title goes here” anchor_type=”text” text=”click here to open the video”]
I copied and pasted these directly from my Amazon account pages. I set my Cloudfront to play RTMP.
Here is the page I’m working on: [http://www.smartretirementstrategies.com/bad-advisors/]
The link as close to the bottom of the page. The lightbox opens, but I get an error message that says: flash: Video file not found. At the bottom of the lightbox it says this: Adobe Flash is disabled for this page, click payer area to enable.
I don’t know what to do.

Hi, you don’t need to specify the full URL to the video. Please enter the shortcode like the following:
[wp_lightbox_ultimate_amazon_s3_cloudfront video="othersvideos/bad-advisors.mp4" domain="s135tlfi8x4bga.cloudfront.net" width="640" height="480" title="title goes here" anchor_type="text" text="click here to open the video"]
You also need to make sure that name of your video is web friendly. So probably change the name to something like the following:
badadvisors.mp4March 11, 2014 at 5:52 am #61475
Thank you. It’s getting closer. I changed the name of the file to bad-advisors.mp4, as you wrote in your shortcode. And then I copied and pasted your shortcode onto my page (replacing the old shortcode).
Now, when I click the arrow, three little dots act like it’s loading, but nothing plays. The screen stays dark.
Sorry to be a problem.
Would I be better off not using Cloudfront? Would it be better just using Amazon s3?
What do you suggest?March 11, 2014 at 6:21 am #61476
have you encoded the video properly?
Cloudfront is good for streaming video. It provides “seek functionality” in the player. So you can skip to a particular time even though the video has not been fully buffered. Also it saves bandwidth. But if are not looking for those features you can just use Amazon S3.March 11, 2014 at 8:47 am #61477
Hi, just to test, I installed the JW player and the video plays fine. Why do you think I’m having trouble with the lightbox? I’d much rather have the lightbox effect, but I need it to play.
Any suggestions?March 12, 2014 at 4:44 am #61478
your site is not loading. So we will need to check it later. I have also sent an email to your registered email address for site access. Let me know if you don’t receive it.March 12, 2014 at 8:37 am #61479
Yes, I did receive your email a while ago, and I responded by entering all the required information in the fields in your form.
You should have full access now.March 13, 2014 at 5:25 pm #61480
Hi, how’s it coming. I see it’s still not working. Have you had a chance to find out why it’s not working? Were you able to login to my site and take a look?March 14, 2014 at 4:01 am #61481
Hi, we have already replied you via email.March 27, 2014 at 1:56 pm #61482jetroseMember
I had a similar problem. I had to revert back to version 2.0.4
Kindly advise if there is an updated version or another way to avoid this errorApril 2, 2014 at 4:23 am #61483
