I suggest you ...

Play video without opening a popup lightbox window

Currently when you click on a video it opens a lightbox popup window to play. I would like the video to play in the main window without leaving the gallery.

        Anne, as it's been many months and this still doesn't work in Journal mode... should I make a separate Feature Request for that? It feels like a bug (it should be consistent no matter what the Gallery Style) but I'll do whatever it takes to get it fixed. I feel like this shouldn't be marked as completed as it's not fully complete, but maybe a new Feature Request will keep it from being ignored?

        Anne... This does not happen in Journal style. Still opens up in the lightbox. Please fix!

        Totally agree. Hate the pop up box. Play the video in the existing window already, how hard can it be to code that?

        This would also make it easier for those with slower connections. Then an expand button could trigger the current system to match the browser if desired.

        Completely agree. This one point keeps me from using SmugMug for all my personal galleries.

        I second this action. It would be nice in the SmugMug gallery view to have the video play right in the main window and not have it pop up into a new overlay window.
