JCE MediaBox

JCE MediaBox is an extension for Joomla! for creating responsive lightbox-style popups for images, video and article content.

With support for most common media formats, from images to video (mp4, wmv, quicktime etc.), Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, and other content (pdf, html, external web pages, internal Joomla content), MediaBox can display using 6 different themes - Standard, Light, Shadow, Squeeze, UIKit and Bootstrap ( The UIKit and Bootstrap themes require that your template is using one of these css frameworks).

A full range of tutorials on creating popups for each media type is available here

JCE MediaBox is a free download. Forum based support is provided with a JCE Pro Subscription.
