Using the Modula Video Extension

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
  • Fancybox
  • LightGallery
