Multimedia Box: how to set moviebox size for Video links feature?

Nice implementation of the thickbox/lightbox style popup
in this new MediaBox plugin!

Here is my question:

When using the Video Links feature, how do you set the size
or aspect ratio of the playback box in the popup window.
My .mov file doesn't fill the space... black sides.
check the link from this article.
(actually a test for another 360 viewer mambot)

the link is here:


toward the bottom of the article, look for:

"MultiMedia Box plugin test: Link here >>"

any help or advice?

you cannot change the size of the video pop box only inline content, images ifram and everything that is handled by popbox script.

I cannot find your test link

ok I see what you mean

go to

look for


change it to your preference

just CTRL=+F and you will find it
it is hard to go through since the script is compressed

remember this will apply to all video links

I will see if we can have Dmitry add this new feature

but the reason it was left out is to have the script work simple without using extra class , just enter the link and you are done

thanx for your help!
guess you found the link, eh?

will look at the .js file for the edit/hack you suggested.
any idea what line #? (open the file in JoomlaXplorer)

it's OK if the size for all "Video links" is always the same...
just wasn't sure where to set it for my preferences.
definitely this would be a decent feature to be able to config./set from admin.

thanx again,

this post of 2 years ago was interesting. I would like to know if it is also possible to change the x and y position of the lightbox and not only the width and height.
