Video enlarged over the page

Recently I saw a cool feature, (I have searched fw-talk for a tip, hope I haven’t missed it). It was page with a video, rather small and ordinary, but when you clicked on it a window with an enlarged media player popped up above and started play the video and the page under were darkened. Is this easy to accomplish?

It’s called a lightbox. If you search under Scripty Lightbox, one of the most ingenious members created an action to accomplish it.

There are a few issues with it, especially in browsers besides Safari, but it is easy to use and does a nice job.

Nice, thanks, I managed to get photos working but the flv-file didn’t emerge. Any idea?

Not sure if flv files work. I know that QT and SWF files work fine.
