fancybox youtube showing video links in a lightbox - updated with fixed code parts

do people still use lightboxes, it seems yes in some cases. ;)

if you feel the urge to use lightboxes and need to link to some youtube videos this is how you can do it.

you will need jquery and fancybox and a youtube video link for this to work

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

I found this example somewhere, cant remember where that adds the fancybox code to any link with the class video

<script>jQuery(document).ready(function() {

	    type: "iframe"


Add a link to the video, e.g:

here is a test link

Click it to see if it works...

View Demo


<a class="youtube btn btn-primary" href="">here is a test link</a>


<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>


$(document).ready(function() {

	    type: "iframe"

Random CSS Property


The :host-context() CSS pseudo-class function selects the shadow host of the shadow DOM containing the CSS it is used inside (so you can select a custom element from inside its shadow DOM) — but only if the selector given as the function's parameter matches the shadow host's ancestor(s) in the place it sits inside the DOM hierarchy.
