I am running WordPress 4.1.1. And WP Lightbox Ultimate 2.1.6.
I am trying to embed an MP4 video in a lightbox. I am using this code:
[wp_lightbox_mp4_video link="http://creakydoor.net/wp-content/uploads/The-Radio-Band-Promo-480.mp4" width="854" height="480" title="The Radio" source="http://creakydoor.net/wp-content/uploads/The-Radio-Logo-480.jpg" autoplay="false"]
It pops up a lightbox, but it actually loads the whole page again inside that window, not just the video. It also subsequently messes up other controls on that page.
To reproduce this, go here: [http://creakydoor.net/slideshow-test/]
And click on the big blue video logo.
If I turn on Disable Shortcode Formatting, then the lightbox won’t open at all. I have Enable Jquery turned on. If I turn it off, it makes no difference (i.e. the same bad behavior happens).
I tried a number of different Library settings, and none seemed to make a difference. E.g. turned on and off Prettybox, etc.March 26, 2015 at 11:38 pm #69302wpCommerceParticipant
Hi, Your theme seems to be including the fancybox library, which is causing a conflict with the plugin.
<link rel='stylesheet' id='debut-fancybox-css' href='http://creakydoor.net/wp-content/themes/debut/assets/js/fancybox/jquery.fancybox.css?ver=4.1.1' type='text/css' media='all' />
Is there any option in the theme settings to disable it?April 6, 2015 at 10:03 pm #69303
I disabled that JS and Stylesheet, and it seems to be working now.April 6, 2015 at 10:39 pm #69304
Ok, it generally works, but I have some additional questions/issues:
1) I have the “Enable Flowplayer” box unchecked, but it still is playing my videos in Flowplayer (as evidenced by the “Flowplayer” watermark at on the bottom left of the screen.) I don’t believe I want to use Flowplayer and I certainly don’t want that watermark.
2) How can I set a “poster” for the video? The initial video image is black, and that looks bad. I’d like to set a poster of whatever “default” image I want to show when I load the lightbox.April 7, 2015 at 12:27 am #69305wpCommerceParticipant
I have sent you an email so I can investigate this issue. Let me know if you don’t receive it.
