At 21-2-2009 I found that if the video is more down to the bottom of a long page in IE,the video stays than on top of the page withoud the complete doctype.

Please make the doctype complete for IE browsers if u use this extension!
Login with ftp to your server and change the doctype in your page.

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
In WB 6.x you can select no doctype in page properties and copy paste the doctype in Page html-->start off page.

In WB 6.5 is the "HTML loose.dtd" doctype standard!

Video-lightbox.

Youtube
Video google
Metacafe


Browser screenshot.

For easy drawing the dimensions from your image I have made rulers.
Image


Pdf not included ,just insert the url from video and url from video image.
You can change the borderwidth and bordercolor from your image.
You can also select an image from your pc.
You can change the video height and weidth.
(default video width and height = empty)


example youtube url.

Code: Select all

http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=erJc4dzZ3IA
If you use more than one video on your page than change the (video)ID

HI katman have you read the tutorial on how to install extensions as Eddy has said with the link he provided. To use this Video/Light box is as so, download unzip and install extension in C \ program \ WYSIWYG Web Builder 5...Restart WB you should now see the extension has been added into extensions. Now place Video/Lightbox in your design area you now need to adjust the size this needs to be 130 x 98 this is just for displaying of the image you use, see example below blue box.
Image
The video display size can be done through the extension by setting the width and height. This is the setting that will display the video when played back.
You need to add the url of the link like this
Url Video:
http://www.youtube.com/v/erJc4dzZ3IA&hl
Image
http://i2.ytimg.com/vi/Ys5eEpT0_S0/default.jpg or you can use your own image.
You can also name the video, change the border color, and border thickness to suit. Hope this helps

In the first posting you can read this to solve that problem.
At 21-2-2009 I found that if the video is more down to the bottom of a long page in IE,the video stays than on top of the page withoud the complete doctype.

Please make the doctype complete for IE browsers if u use this extension!
Login with ftp to your server and change the doctype in your page.

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> 
2. On that same note, if you scroll down the page, the video box remains at the top. Can the extension be set to scroll with the page as well?
No thats not possible that the movie scrolls down together with page scrolling.
But if u have scrolled down the page and click on the image than the movie opens there, if you change the doctype.

This is how the script works,I dont know how to change the code to autostart :?

To make you videos auto play in the extenion you have to add this to the end of link &autoplay=1
Example with autoplay
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-fQ32qz4d0&autoplay=1
Example without
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-fQ32qz4d0

Ignore this this only works in the youtube extension sorry
