I’ve been trying the different LightBox settings and running into a compatibility and actual playback problem. Currently we use FLV/SWF but we’d like to convert our videos to MP4 so that they’ll play on Apple mobile devices. I tried the HTML5 and Flowplayer settings and nothing happens on Firefox, Chrome, etc. I have tried just having that setting checked in the settings and didn’t help. The Lightbox Special settings work with MP4 but it uses Flash to display so it won’t play on the Apple devices.September 7, 2011 at 8:42 pm #36397
Quick followup – I saw in the forum that fancybox supports MP4 but didn’t see it as a selection in the dropdown for that video format and don’t see the wp_lightbox code in the pdf’s for that video. As with the previous post -we’re looking to use the same video for regular browsers as all as mobile and mp4 seems to be the way but it can’t rely on Flash for display.September 8, 2011 at 4:06 am #36398adminKeymaster
It is always a good idea to use properly encoded MP4 file of online video.
Use our HTML5 Video display shortcode which can play videos on all platforms given your video is encoded properly.
Check the “HTML5” section in the documentation for the appropriate shortcodeSeptember 8, 2011 at 2:32 pm #36399
I’ve tried the code right from the PDF as well as inserting through the UI and when I select the link – nothing happens. The URL has an anchor string after it like the others but no overlay. The Lightbox Special link works as it should so I’m not sure what is wrong – http://staging.gxs.com/resources/thought_leadership/first_take_videosSeptember 9, 2011 at 1:28 am #36400
Hi, Please post a valid link to the page where you have the shortcode embedded. The above URL keeps redirecting me to the homepage.
Please also post the exact shortcode you are using on that page.September 15, 2011 at 5:01 pm #36401
Please try http://staging.gxs.com/resources/thought_leadership/first_take_videos again. The shortcode is:
[wp_lightbox_anchor_text_html5_video link=”http://c727565.r65.cf2.rackcdn.com/09_AndreaBrody-TransactMessaging.mp4″ width=”510″ height=”340″ text=”Click here too open the video with HTML5″] – this does not work
[wp_lightbox_special_anchor_text_mp4_video link=”http://c727565.r65.cf2.rackcdn.com/09_AndreaBrody-TransactMessaging.mp4″ width=”510″ height=”340″ title=”Video title goes here” text=”Click here to open the mp4 video”] – this one worksSeptember 16, 2011 at 1:04 am #36402
I can’t access this page – http://staging.gxs.com/resources/thought_leadership/first_take_videos. Still it redirects me to the homepage.September 16, 2011 at 3:46 pm #36403
I think I may know why you can’t access -are you in Europe? We have a redirect on our site to filter out UK, FR and DE and send them to the regional sites over there. If you can change your browser language setting to en-US, then the page will work.September 17, 2011 at 1:23 am #36404
Somehow my language got switched to en-UK. I changed it back to en-US. It’s all good now.
Please have a look at the following page which will explain it more –
The default WordPress theme is properly coded. So It’s a good idea to switch to that theme for troubleshooting –
