Can video play straight from thumbnail link? was created by DocAuto

Hello,

I've followed the Third Part Plugin instructions and embedded the code from a Wistia (online streaming service) video.

My question/concern is, does the video have to play from a custom player page URL? I would like to display my gallery in categories and have the videos play within a popover lightbox. The embedded code does this however the thumbnail link forces the user to a new page, where he/she must click the video again to then have it popover within the lightbox. Perhaps I am not applying All Video Share's features appropriately, but I really just want a gallery of video thumbnail links that will play based on the embedded Wistia code.

Is this possible?

Thank you.

Actually, "All Video Share" doesn't have popup feature. But I can help you in this case.

You've said that the embedded code itself has this feature which is confusing. Could you get me your Live site URL to check this and get a proper solution ?

I am currently testing the gallery here dev.docauto.com/index.php/resources-main...u/test-video-library

The embedded code has this script
<script charset="ISO-8859-1" src=" fast.wistia.com/assets/external/popover-v1.js "></script> which creates the lightbox.

Aah....sorry, this is not possible through our current version. You will have to alter the code in the gallery view by pointing to the embed-script instead of the page link.
