Using the Modula Video Extension

Using the Modula Video Extension 1

Once the Modula Video extension is installed and activated, head to your gallery edit page. Click the edit icon on the image onto which you want to insert a video. This could commonly be the thumbnail of the video or a screenshot of a part of the video.

Scroll down in the image settings and paste your video’s URL – either from an external service like YouTube or Vimeo, or a link to the file in your WordPress Media Library.

That’s it! 🙂


For your reference, here’s a list of the lightbox styles that the Modula Video extension is compatible with:

Magnific Popup/Swipebox only work with a YouTube link, not with a YouTube embedded link

Fancybox/LightGallery/PrettyPhoto only work with both a YouTube link & a YouTube embedded link

Lightbox: Not compatible with the Modula video extension.

The following lightbox styles are also compatible with a Vimeo link:

  • Magnific Popup
  • Swipebox
