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.

        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.
