What is the best approach to showing / playing a video from a tile click?    Thoughts?

Re: Displaying a video

Do you mean in a tile or zoomed in lightbox-style?

Re: Displaying a video

Ideally, I would like to have a tile with an image that will popup the video (youtube) to autoplay.   Not sure if I should just link to a URL and create my own popup or if there is some kind of media tile that can be resized to the size of the video width/height to play.

Re: Displaying a video

Check the video tiles in the last tilegroup of this site: http://chrisly.org/#&videos

Maybe the plugin this guy uses on his metro site could be of use for you? And then add ?autoplay=1 to the url of your youtube link.

I've sent him an email to get the plugin files smile

Re: Displaying a video

Thanks Thomas

I have found a couple of ways to approach this in my project:
1) create a popup window and play the video in the popup.
2) display the video in full screen mode.

Thanks
