View Full Version : Hyperlinked Flash Video In Popup Window

09-26-2011, 11:45 AM
This is what I have so far which works as a cross-browser download however Firefox will play the video locally inside the popup window: is this normal behaviour?

<span class="popup"><a href="javascript:void(window.open('videos/directdrive.flv','','height=383,width=512'));">Watch a video!</a></span>

This is a very new area for me as you can probably tell and I was wondering if websites require a flash player to view video or do some browsers have a flash player built in as Firefox has led me to believe?

Just downloaded Shadowbox (http://www.shadowbox-js.com/) and am going to get to grips with it's implementation.

Will post some results later.

UPDATE: this is a nice package, lightweight even as a standalone and so easy to install I'm already done! test page (http://www.bellsdomestics.co.uk/testing/laundry_auto.html) (first appliance top left has video link only)

Also planning to use Shadowbox as an expanded image view using a mouseover function.
