Use Vimeo in image-lightbox to video?


#1

Hi,

The image to lightbox video is looking great but as far as i can see it’s local videos only.
Can we get option to link to a Vimeo/Youtube video?
It would also be great if we could set the size of the lightbox as well.

Thanks

At least say it’s on the road map?

Norm promised that a while ago.
Still waiting.

Yeah its coming, Im hoping to add background videos hosted elsewhere too.


#5

Good.
Will there be a Build 11 before Xmas?


#6

@Bootsie yes, its almost ready. Last few issues I’ve been working on have been time consuming.

Wonderful news Norm :+1:

Hi on the blocs homepage, the vimeo video that appears is this feature no? I can’t figure out how to add a youtube video as a popup like the vimeo example on the top of the blocsapp.com site. Thanks for your help!

@Jakerlund. Any news on this? Did this ever get implemented?

@Brett No not like image to lightbox with Vimeo/Youtube.
So I’ve just used this method instead
(I’ve added a svg icon over the image instead of making an image with icon in it.)

My old tutorial for the lightbox thingy here. (without the play svg icon overlay though)

Cheers

Unfortunately no.
I’m still waiting for this.
@Norm?

I use @Jakerlund method instead.
Works fine.

This would be needed. Especially since Video is important to SEO …Self hosted videos are best for SEO as long as it’s not too many.

Obviously this feature takes more than a year for Norm … :frowning:
Is there anybody able to design a custom bric for that?
If so, it would be nice to trigger a Vimeo/Youtube-Video from a image gallery (i.e carousel)
