Copy and paste a direct link to your YouTube video (or Google Video, Metacafe, Vimeo, MySpace) into the 'Video url' field and press "Add video" button. This video will be automatically added to your website gallery.
If you have included the videos that you do not wish to be in the website gallery, you can easily remove them. Select all videos that you wish to remove from web site gallery, and select 'Delete selected..' button from the toolbar. You can pick and choose videos by holding the CTRL while clicking the videos you like.
Switch between available templates to select a template you want to use in the gallery.
Control the quality of output thumbnail images by defining "Thumbnail quality" parameter (0%…100%).
You can establish the various sizes for the thumbnails and video resolution.
Now you are ready to publish your website video gallery online or to a local drive for testing. Select the publishing method: publish to folder or publish to FTP server.
You are able to add a new FTP site by clicking "Edit" to the right of the "Publish to FTP server" drop down list. FTP Location Manager window will appear. Now type in a meaningful (this is not the actual hostname) name for your site and fill in the FTP details in the appropriate fields. You will have to type in your hostname, e.g. domain. The FTP port is normally located on port 21 thus this has been prefilled for you already. If your web site uses another port, you will have to enter it here.
Type in your username and password for the connection. If you do not fill in this information, Flash Lightbox is unable to connect to your site and thus not able to upload your videos to website. If this website enables anonymous connections, just type in anonymous as the username and your e-mail address as the password.
You might want to change the Directory as well if you need to have your uploaded images placed in e.g. "www/gallery/". You can specify it in the FTP Folder field on the Publish Gallery window.
Notice: Write the name of the folder where your website video gallery will be placed on the server. Notice that you should specify this field; otherwise your website video gallery will be uploaded into the root folder of your server!
When you exit Flash Lightbox, you'll be asked if you want to save your project. The project consists of the videos you choose to put on your website video gallery and all your settings. It's a good idea to save the project, because that will allow you to change the project in case you decide to do something different with future galleries. So click Yes, then enter a name for your project. To select the location of your project, just click the Browse folders button and choose a different location. Then click Save.
Flash Lightbox generates a special code. You can paste it in any place on your page where you want to add video popup.
* Export your LightBox gallery using Flash Lightbox app in any test folder on a local drive.
* Open the generated index.html file in any text editor.
* Copy all code for Flash Lightbox from the HEAD and BODY tags and paste it on your page in the HEAD tag and in the place where you want to have a gallery (inside the BODY tag).
