How To Add A Lightbox Video Gallery To WordPress

So I spent hours trying to find a WordPress Plugin that would display my YouTube videos as a gallery on my web page. Most of the free ones added a watermark plus had limited features. Finally I came across a great plugin called Huge-IT Video Gallery.

Here are the 5 options of the HugeIT Video Gallery Plugin:

content-pop-up1. Content Pop-up
If you click on any of the videos in the gallery it will show a video with the content next to it.

2. Content Video Slider
If you click on the arrow at the bottom of each slide it will show the next video.
