IMPORTANT: The shortcode has changed to [nggvid][/nggvid] for ALL types of video! If you are upgrading, make sure you update your shortcodes.

This plugin allows you to have a video lightbox popup in a NextGEN gallery. It's very easy to use - just enable the addon and insert some shortcode (along with the URL of the video) in the image description and voila, one video! See the installation instructions and screenshots for more details.

Supports all the same video formats as Shadowbox JS - YouTube, Vimeo, Viddler, Metacafe etc as well as external and self-hosted asf, avi, dv, f4v, flv, moov, mov, movie, mp4, mpg, mpeg, swf, wm and wmv.

Please note: Obviously as this uses NextGEN Gallery for the gallery, NGG is a required plugin. Shadowbox JS is also required!

Update 12/12/2011:

Due to a new arrival in the family we had stopped work on this plugin, we have now resumed work and hopefully should have a new release out soon with fixes etc 🙂
