Hi, all,  www.rockypointendoscopy.com/endoscopy-lower.html

On that page and others like it, I have a pop-up video. Client wants two changes:

1. Video pops up exactly in center of screen.
2. Rest of website fades out almost to black as video plays.

Does anyone know of a script out there that will do that for me? Or are there some changes that can be made to the script I have to allow those changes?

Thanks!

In
#video_container > iframe {}

add
left: 50%;
margin-left: -25%;
position: absolute;


and remove
float: right;
padding-right: 30px;



But since you are using jquery why not just use one of the lightbox plugins

Will center it and fade out the screen

I will need some help with this... I have jquery, and I uploaded jquery.lightbox_me.js into scripts as well. This is what I have currently:

<a onclick="yt_show()"><img width="90" height="70" style="cursor: pointer" alt="" title="Lower Endoscopy" src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/qIHsxq-qjnI/1.jpg"></a>
<div id="video_container"></div>
      

Can I just wrap the whole thing in the lightbox? Can you help me with the code, please, I don't know much at all about jquery. Thanks.

For the anchor tag you have around the youtube image add a class and remove the onclick
So
<a onclick="yt_show()">
becomes
<a class="youtube">

Remove function yt_show() {.....}
And just place the DIV code directly into <div id="video_container">

Add this css
#video_container {
     display:none
}



Add the simple lightbox script and add after it
<script>
$('.youtube').click(function(e) {
    $('#video_container').lightbox_me({
        centered: true
        });
    e.preventDefault();
});
</script>

Hi- I think I've done what you asked, but it isn't working correctly. Probably I misunderstood something. Thanks very much for your help and patience!

Change the script to this
<script>
$(function() {
$('.youtube').click(function(e) {
    $('#video_container').lightbox_me({
        centered: true
        });
    e.preventDefault();
});
})
</script>

Open in new window


You also removed the function but you didn't move the youtube div into the video_container div

Add an extra option for opacity and just adjust it

$('.youtube').click(function(e) {
    $('#video_container').lightbox_me({
        centered: true,
       opacity: .8
        });
    e.preventDefault();
});


In the css change #video_container > iframe to this

#video_container > iframe {
    height: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    margin-left: -25%;
    position: absolute;
    width: 50%;
}
