    Hi, i am trying to get a slider image to launch a lightbox and play a youtube video like it does on the propulsion demo home page, i have tried many ways, replicating the demo, linking a button, and adding a ext video and image but i can only get it to play within the slider.

    Its the fourth image on the slider here: http://www.motionsimulation.com/

    Any ideas



    Hi antnoyce,

    I just gave it a try and the video popped up in a lightbox and played.




    Hi Devin,

    You beat me to it, just found a resolve. The youtube link that i copied from the ‘share’ video link wont work, when i copy the actual address bar link it works!

    Thanks for looking, thought it would be something simple!



    Good thing you found the solution. :)




    I’m having some real trouble with my attempts at putting video into a lightbox

    Would someone be able to list a detailed run-through

    I can only get the video to play within the slider




    Hi Jonathan,

    When you click on Add external video by URL, you’ll need to paste in the link just like it appears in the URL for the video. Just make sure to cut off anything after, and including, the “?”.

    Hit Insert Video in that popup. In the Default Options tab you will see an option for “Apply Link to the image?”. Select “Open Lightbox when clicked”.

    That is it :)




    Hi Devin,

    I’m also having problems getting the lightbox to open to watch the video. The video is within the slider, it is larger, and messes up my other image sizes.

    I tried the options above without success..



    Hi Lyse,

    I just responded to your other thread regarding your issue (specific to Abundance).




    I’d like to do this too, but I’m not getting step by step instructions by following this thread.

    - I’d like to open a YouTube video from an image in the slider, like the one in the Propulsion demo


    - I’d also like to open the video in a lightbox from a thumbnail image.

    Thanks for any help you can give.


    Hi jeanstorms,

    Go to this link: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/propulsion/template-files/video-tutorials/ and check the screencast/video with this title: Abundance Theme Demo 3: Setting up a page, changing the layout and adding a slideshow with images and video. :)




    Thanks, I’ll check it out. I actually figured out how to do the lightbox within the slider. Will see if this covers how to open a video in a light box from a regular button, image, or text link.
