    I have 2 text links in the page below that wanted to open in a lightbox instead of a separate tab opening in Vimeo or YouTube. I had these links:

    <a class="mfp-iframe lightbox-added" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Om De Kreatives Kontor</a>
    <a class="mfp-iframe lightbox-added" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Samarbejde mellem CULINN og Turning Tables: Mød Abyan</a>

    but could not get the lightbox to open.

    Now I tried the links in a button element, and the Vimeo link works fine but the YouTube one doesn’t.
    the YouTube button link is:
    [av_button label=' SE VIDEO: Om De Kreatives Kontor' link='manually,' class='open-popup-link' link_target='' size='medium' position='left' label_display='' icon_select='yes' icon='ue897' font='entypo-fontello' color='dark' custom_bg='#444444' custom_font='#ffffff' av_uid='av-3x1gt6' admin_preview_bg='']

    I looked at this thread and tried adding ?iframe=true” class=”open-popup-link” but that didn’t work – the lightbox opens but the video doesn’t play.
    Can you help me with this?

    Hey Munford,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Please refer to this link for lightbox usage.

    Best regards,


    thanks that worked fine.
    IS there a reason the youtube videos do not work as direct links like vimeo?



    The alternate youtube url format should work.

    Have you tried that? The other format is not going to be recognized by the lightbox script.

    Best regards,
