ur very welcome.
I did change my site's theme back to the default WP theme, just to see if it was a theme issue, and the video does load up and play. (although the shadowbox still isnt working), but once back on the just grey theme, it doesnt even show up. so im suspecting there is something incompatible somewhere. I've been searching online, and ive seen some places that the function needs to be enabled in the header (?), but im not sure what that means
the plugin author was having me insert this code at the end of the stylesheet.css /*GALLERIES*/
Inserting this was what was causing the player to break, not sure why..once i take it out, the player works just fine. so the problem is not with ur theme, i dont think
i also had to create a galleries-script.js file and add this to the function.php//I commented the condition because it seems there is a bug with this on my website, but normally you should uncomment it.
wp_enqueue_script( 'galleries-scripts', get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory').'/js/galleries-scripts.js', array('jquery'),'0.1');
but those dont seem to have changed anything.
shadowbow still not working though...
