How To Add A LightBox Video Gallery To WordPress

Gallery – Video Gallery and Youtube Gallery


So I spent hours trying to find a WordPress Plugin that would display myYouTube videos as a gallery on my web page. Most of the free ones added a watermark plus had limited features.

Finally I came across a great plugin called Huge-IT Video Gallery.

Here are the 5 options of the video gallery:
1.Content Pop-up
Shows a video and then the content next to it
2. Content Video Slider
Click the arrow at the bottom of the slide and another will appear.
3. Lightbox Video Gallery
If you click on any one of the videos in the gallery it pops up in a lightbox and if you go down the bottom of the slide you can just scroll through the different videos in the gallery.
4. Video Slider
You’ve got the first video, then click the arrow. at the bottom to shows the next video, next video, next video, etc.
5. Thumbnail Gallery
So if you click on any of these thumbnails then a lightbox pops up and you can scroll through them by clicking the arrow at the bottom.

Steps to create a lightbox video gallery on WordPress:
Log into your WordPress dashboard
Go down to plugins
Click add new
In the search box search Huge-It Video Gallery.
Click install now.
Click video gallery
Click add new video gallery
Select from the different options..Thumbnails view, Lightbox Video Gallery, Video Slider, the content video slider and video gallery content pop-up
Select the lightbox video gallery
Start adding the videos
Add the video URL from YouTube
Add a title, description
Click insert video slide
Then I just continue adding more videos
Now I’ve got three different videos so I check the lightbox video gallery then save it.
Copy and paste the shortcode into your web page. and I’ve got the
Make sure you’re in text mode not visual mode
Click update or publish the page
Click view page
And now you will see the lightbox video gallery
If I click on any one of the videos up pops the lightbox
I can scroll through all the videos by clicking the arrow at the bottom of the slide.

That’s it!
Now you know how to Add A Lightbox Video Gallery To WordPress. I just demonstrated the free version however the paid option has many more features.

    IN HTML I can auto start a youtube video
    I can make a youtube replay auto
    I can have it play in HD automatically

    can I still do this while using this plugin
    OR
    skip all this plugin altogether and just use HTML and CSS

At the end of your lightbox video gallery the background of that is transparent. But mine is a really ugly darkgrey one. Why? You are not use the free mode? I have to buy, if I want to setting the apparence of the video gallery?

    thank you so much for the video. I have 2 questions, since am new to wordpress itself :
    1) when you hit preview to check the rendering — below the 3 videos, I see the word Edit on the left. Will this go away once my website is LIVE ?

    2) Could you please share a link on how to create beautiful blogs, my post are ready – i just need to connect them through a plugin. The issue is the one that am using – the images are displayed way too large.

    Thanks a lot.
