Hi all,

So I've made a Screencast tutorial to go on my blog. The problem is the resolution is approx 960 pixels wide, and the actual amount for text on my blog is significantly smaller.

What I'm looking for is a way to have the video "popout" or "overlay" in a fashion similar to Lightbox2:
http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/

By doing it this kind of way, the width of the video shouldn't matter in comparison to the width of the blog.

I've then just got some basic code which I would use to embed the video and check for Flash player (courtesy of Camtasia).

Any ideas on the best way of achieving this?

Thanks


Chill.

Any ideas on the HTML code I'd need to do this?

Maybe you should wait for your beloved HTML5 for this little project! :p

Ha ;)

Well I know it's already possible with the likes of Lightbox2, but I just want something that's a little less "Slideshow / Gallery", and more just "Heres an overlay, put your code here" sorta thing ...

Now to just figure out how to tie the damn thing into Wordpress, and make it play nice with the Camtasia files :-/
