Hi all,

How can we open a flv file using the lightbox?I am using the following code

<a href="http://myurl.com/video/clock.flv" class="lightwindow">Link Name</a>

But the browser still downloads the file instead of showing it in lightbox.

One more thing...is it possible to display some text along with this video in the lightbox?


Can u please help me???
thanx in advance...

you cannot open FLV, Video or any HTML pages in lightbox,
you can try these UI dialog widgets

for required functionality

ThickBox
http://jquery.com/demo/thickbox/

or

GreyBox
http://orangoo.com/labs/GreyBox/

there are some more on web you may find by searching on google or other search

Tip: for FLV File you should use flash FLV Player (with swf ext.) to play FLV on web browser by calling that swf file into thickbox or GreyBox
