Hi Kriesi, I need help with the integrated lightbox.
It is playing videos fine when they are in .mov format. But I does not work with an .mp4 file which I need for being compatible with iPad users.
I have searched for a lightbox plugin which supports .mp4 files and I found “WP Lightbox Ultimate”.
Do you think after installing this plugin all will be fine or will it conflict in somehow with the integrated lightbox solution in your theme?
I guess even when it should work I will loose your beautifull mouseover effekt where the pictures gets a bit darker and you can see this video symbol. Though I hope not… ;)
Great theme btw!
I tried to follow the advice of user bmeier which you can find here:
and put his code in the file: jquery.prettyPhoto.js
but it does not work here either…
Finally I got it! :)
After changing the “jquery.prettyPhoto.js” file I just had to use this code structure within my post to show the mp4 video within the PP Lightbox:
<a href="http://trailers.apple.com/movies/universal/despicableme/despicableme-tlr1_r640s.mov?width=640&height=360" title="Despicable Me" rel="prettyPhoto[movies]"><img src="/wp-content/themes/NMFE/images/thumbnails/quicktime-logo.png" alt="Despicable Me" /></a>
and change the word ”.mov” to ”.mp4”
<a href="http://trailers.apple.com/movies/universal/despicableme/despicableme-tlr1_r640s.mp4?width=640&height=360" title="Despicable Me" rel="prettyPhoto[movies]"><img src="/wp-content/themes/NMFE/images/thumbnails/quicktime-logo.png" alt="Despicable Me" /></a>
Best of all: I did not loose the beautifull mouseover effekt & do not have to use another plugin! :)
Sadly it just works on FF 5 but not with IE9 & more important not with the iPads Sarafi though it worked strangely with Sarari on Win & Mac.
Need a break… ;)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.July 12, 2011 at 5:25 am #48378
can you post a link to your website please (with the implemented lightbox). We can’t suport it officially but maybe it’s only a small bug or issue.July 12, 2011 at 6:33 pm #48379
thanks for trying to help me out though it is not an officially supported problem… ;)
Thanks in advance!
PS: I have tested out “WP Lightbox Ultimate” but sadly it is not compatible with the Avisio Theme. When using the standard theme (Twenty Ten 1.2) the HTML 5 Video option works beautifully on the iPad but that is not an option… ;)July 13, 2011 at 1:10 am #48380
Ok, finally I have found a workaround with a nice plugin called “MediaElement.js” which works very well on the iPad now. Not in a lightbox but still beautifull and with HTML 5 support! :)
PS: btw, could you please wipe out the link of the website now. The edit button has mysteriously disappeared…
