I'm trying to use Shadowbox to display videos for a new website. I'm tried liking to the video from a image map and a text link. Both links open the video in a new blank page.
If you go to the new test site, you'll see the two links. The first is "Watch the presentation" and the other is "My Image". Both use the ref tag and every other work around I've discovered including the header tag. The footer tag causes problem no matter where I place it so I'm not sure if that's what the problem is or not.
I'm hoping someone can take a look and let me know what I'm missing.
If you are not using it then you forgot something because the shadowbox library is not being loaded. If you are using that plugin, you should review the configuration, there's a parameter that is recomended to turn off if you experiment problems like yours with not shadowbox library in the page.
Besides I can see that jquery is loaded two times in your page, and two different versions, but this is not making problems (anyway you should try to load jquery only once).
Once you solve the shadowbox library problem, your a link should work though not sure which dimension would the video have. To open a video on specific dimensions you must include those parameters in rel attribute. So your link should look:
And the map should be like this:
height: 270 //,
// player: "qt" // you have to test if it is needed, most of the times it is detected automatically
