Video player in flyout/ popup
Posted on 2009-04-23
I am simply looking for a script that will allow a video player in a popup/flyout.
I have googled and found tons of lightboxes that will play videos in them. However, all these grayout the screen and center the popup. I need one to show up just to the left of an image or link clicked (onClick not mouseover) kind of like a tooltip, and can load the content in via ajax.
I'm not sure if such a thing exists or not. If it doesn't I guess I can take one of the open source lightboxes and make it do this but I'd rather not.
For example, if you have an account with istock, go view their videoplayer. It shows up when you mouseover a thumbnail and starts playing. We want it to work like this but onClick. To close it we need it to be closable when when you click out side the popup or on a close button.
Any ideas? Thanks!
