Lightweight Vimeo/Youtube Video Popup Plugin For jQuery

Yet another jQuery based video popup plugin used to place your embedded Youtube & Vimeo videos in a customizable overlay that covers the entire webpage.

How to use it:

1. Include the main stylesheet video.popup.css for the video popup.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="video.popup.css">

2. Create a toggle link and insert the Youtube or Vimeo video URL into the 'video-url' attribute like this:

<a id="video" video-url="">
<a id="video2" video-url="">

3. Include both jQuery library and the jQuery video-popup-js plugin's script at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="video.popup.js"></script>

4. Initialize the plugin with default options. That's it.

$("#video1, #video2").videoPopup();

5. Config the video popup with the following options.

$("#video1, #video2").videoPopup({

  // autoplay on open
  autoplay: false,

  // shows video controls
  showControls: true,

  // colors of controls
  controlsColor: null,

  // infinite loop
  loopVideo: false,

  // shows video information
  showVideoInformations: true,

  // width
  width: null

6. You can also pass the YouTube/Vimeo Player Parameters in the customOptions option:


  customOptions: {
    rel: 0,
    end: 60,
