Web video for beginners

Video display question

by Mario

I would like a video window be shown within my web page.
When I link to the video clip, the entire screen goes black and then the small box with the video appears.

Is there a way to keep the video within my own screen?

Just highlight the script and delete it in your HTML editor or in Blockbuilder if using SBI!. Then add the embed code.

Mr. Video,

and just how do I remove the script? so that I may embed the video on my page.

Thank you for your help.


Hi Mario,

It sounds like you currently are using a 'lightbox' or 'greybox' script to display your videos. These scripts allow you to open your video in a new page the same size of the video and without the usual browsers etc. at the top. It greys out the background, so it looks like a 'pop-up', but in fact it is a new page.

If you want the video to play on the same page as your embed code, then simply remove the 'script' code and use a regular video embed code.

www.sbitube.com offers the easiest way to add video and audio to your website. It works just like YouTube, but you get a blank video player, which you can add your own logo, ads, links etc. to.

SBITUBE encodes your video to HQ FLV, hosts the video, provides the HTML video embed code and much more. They have a free 30 day trial to try it out for yourself. No obligation and no credit card details required.

Go to www.sbitube.com for your 30 day free trial.
