This was done ages ago via hand-coded PHP. If redoing it now I would put the video on its own page as an attachment. Let's pretend that page is in the site zone and called '_video1'.

I would then use this Comcode…

Code

[semihtml]
<a target="_blank" href="{$PAGE_LINK*,site:video1:wide_high=1}" onclick="return open_link_as_overlay(this,400,400);">Watch video</a>
[/semihtml]

(400x400 is the overlay width)

If the user has Javascript that should open as an overlay, else it should open in a new window.

As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

^ If that works, someone should add to the community docs. Writing that was my good deed for the day ;).

You must have missed the first [semihtml] when you copied the script.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Or maybe the WYSIWYG needs disabling.
