Earlier we have posted on inserting links to popup in WordPress, now same thing can be done for displaying videos in a lightbox overlay.
You can add links by placing shortcode and when the link is clicked, inserted video starts to play in a responsive lightbox overlay.
Once the plugin is installed and activated, it adds a TinyMCE button on post edit screens to help you generate shortcode with multiple options such as you can trigger popup via a click on a poster image, a button or simply text, video pauses when popup is closed.
To include a video in your post, page or any other shortcode supported area use these shortcode options:
For MP4 / WebM / Ogv
[favideo-popup popup="text" text="YOUR TEXT" mp4="https://domain.com/video.mp4" webm="https://domain.com/video.webm" ogg="https://domain.com/video.ogv"]
You must declare at least one type of video with a valid url.
[favideo-popup popup="text" text="YOUR TEXT" youtube="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID"]
[favideo-popup popup="text" text="YOUR TEXT" vimeo="https://vimeo.com/VIDEO_ID"]
Remember to replace text “VIDEO_ID” with the video ID from YouTube or Vimeo.
Popup via click on image (poster)
[favideo-popup popup="poster" poster="https://domain.com/wp-content/uploads/YOUR_IMAGE.png" mp4="https://domain.com/video.mp4"]
Popup via click on button
[favideo-popup popup="button" button="YOUR BUTTON TEXT" mp4="https://domain.com/video.mp4"]
Popup via click on text
[favideo-popup popup="text" text="YOUR TEXT" mp4="https://domain.com/video.mp4"]
Embedded videos are responsive and centered. The plugin supports MP4/WEBM/OGG video files and YouTube/Vimeo links.
