Video Pop up player
I am looking for a possibility to have a video pop up player. Is there any that works with the lay theme?
My goal is o embbed videos from vimeo and youtube and have them play as a pop up.
Would be thankful for any recommendations.
i think if you insert an image into a page, then right click the image and then set a link to a page that has overlay turned on,
then that page will open as an overlay
you just want to be able to click an image or a link and then a popup should appear right
@arminunruh thank you for your response.
I will try it. Even though it means a lot of work because I now have to create a unique page for every single video.
With having several directors and many videos on our homepage this obviously is quite a hustle.
Maybe it would be an option to create an add-on to have the possibility to just drop a link into a player and then the video coming from vimeo or youtoube or uploaded is being shown as a pop up like it already works with fotos in the lightbox add on.
I will check out your approach and see if it woks for us.

@ffinger hey, thank you for the hint. So would it also work if I have a thumbnail video and I click on the thumbnail video and then it pops up? Where would I put the shortcode?

@locolor Hey yes that should work. You just need to add the shortcode with the youtube or vimeo link like this to a row anywhere on the page
and then hide the row via css like with display:none;
Then the element you want to be the trigger needs to have the class "wp-video-popup", so like
<a href="#" class="wp-video-popup">Play Video</a>
If you want to trigger multiple video pop ups you need the pro version though. There's a good documentation here on the plugin's page: https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-youtube-vimeo-popup/#description
@arminunruh hi armin, thx i tried this and it works well for me! but when i close the overlay-page the video keeps running and you can still hear the sound of the video. is it possible that closing the overlay-page triggers pausing the video?
@kooloo ah yea!
i haven't thought of that. im going to work on it!
I don't answer or check forum DMs, please just post on the forum.
