Embedded Movie

Iam creating a site for a director. Now I want to use a trailer. So far so good. Now my question: How can I show the trailer in a “lightbox”?

Yes - where is the video?

You have it or or hosted elsewhere?

You should be able to use ScriptyLightbox for this http://www.actionsforge.com/actions/view/153-scriptylightbox

Draw an HTML item on the page and insert a graphic item inside it.

Apply the Scripty action to the HTML container.

Apply Graphic Link to File action to the graphic and choose your movie file from the selector in the GLTF action.

Upload and test.

Hi Tom,

create the following tag styles:

#lightwindow_loading

click extended and insert:

name: background-color
value: black

#lightwindow_contents

extended

name: border
value: 10px solid black

That did for me the job in here:

If you need control on the overlay, proceed:

#lightwindow_overlay

extended

name: opacity
value: 0.75 !important

name: background-color
value: black !important

change colors and opacity to your needs.

To create a tag style? Some small information you can find on:

Hope it helps you out.

Cheers

Thomas

When I use a 4:3 movie it works perfekt.
But the 16:9 do not fit… there is always a whit bar on the top and on the bottom. Even if I set a value into s-l-box …
