How can I add youtube video on website in Joomla?

Feb 27, 2014

Q: Hello,
Forgive me the mistakes in my English!

I bought yesterday your Videolightbox and try to put fist the free version on my site. (Joomla 2.5) Can you help me?

A: Video LightBox wasn't developed as Joomla or any other CMS extension, BUT you can try to use it as standard Javascript files. To install the Video LightBox into your html page:

1) open the page in your program
2) open html source code of the page
3) add several rows of code:

Copy code for the HEAD section and paste it inside the HEAD section of you own webpage, for example:

<!-- Start VideoLightBox.com HEAD section -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="engine/css/videolightbox.css" type="text/css" />
<style type="text/css">#videogallery a#videolb{display:none}</style>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="engine/css/overlay-minimal.css"/>
<script src="engine/js/jquery.tools.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="engine/js/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- make all links with the 'rel' attribute open overlays -->
<script src="engine/js/videogallery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- End VideoLightBox.com HEAD section -->

Copy code for the BODY section and paste it inside the Body section of you own webpage in the place where you want to have a gallery, for example:

<!-- Start VideoLightBox.com BODY section -->
<div id="videogallery">
<a rel="#voverlay" href="http://www.youtube.com/v/n9-8UsJ-cpc?autoplay=1" title="Manchester United vs Chelsea Penalty shootout 2008">
<img src="data/thumbnails/0.png" alt="Manchester United vs Chelsea Penalty shootout 2008"/><span></span></a><a id="videolb"
href="http://videolightbox.com">Video In A Lightbox by VideoLightBox.com v1.6</a>
<!-- End VideoLightBox.com BODY section -->

Copy 'data' folder with images and video files and 'engine' folder with .css and .js files into the same folder with your own webpage.
