Insert video in a Lightbox in MUSE

Aug 28, 2011 1:33 PM

Hi everybody,

I´m starting using Muse for a website I´m makin (I´m not webdesigner, I was making it with iWeb, but it wasn´t enough for what I need), and I´m in troubles with Lightbox widget: I want to use it to show videos instead images, but I can´t do it. Someone knows how to do it? There´s a video tutorial where adobe says it´s possible, but they doesn´t explain how. Any help will be really wellcome!

Best

Gonzalo

    Both the two above links round robin me back to this page... hmmm just what are the link limitations when posting to this forum?

    I'll try an adobe tv iframe... I love those adobe guys for all the great video content they create... I couldn't get taught how to use these programs even in college... no offense to my professors... The more you know, the more you know you don't know... ya know?

    I have had the same issues... until now.

     

     

     

    Go to your Widget library.
    Choose Compositions and then scroll down to Lightbox Display.
    Drag in the Lightbox to your scene.

    Click on the 1st thumbnail so its highlighted.
    Go and grab the HTML embed code for your video.
    Go back into Muse and whilst the thumbnail is highlighted goto the Object heading at the top of the screen and Insert HTML.
    Paste your HTML Embed code there.
    You will then see the video appear on the screen as a still.
    Place this inside the lightbox.
    Preview.
    Works!

    Thanks for the post Pixelkid. I seem to be have an issue with the last portion howver. I can't seem to place the video inside the lightbox. It can sit on top, but that is it. The thumbnail doesn't change either. And when I got back to that same object and go to object>insert HTML, the field is blank. What am I missing? Much obliged for any further light you can shed.

    Hi Lehestro! you just have to pick the Lightbox Display, which is in compositions and it's completely blank, not the one in slideshows.

     

    Hope it works for you, it did for me.

    Cheers
