    Is there a way to add a youtube hosted video to the responsive slider?

    Thanks

    Not easily, but it can be done. It will require a lot of custom code including custom CSS and PHP functions. This wouldn’t be for the faint at heart. I’m not going to be able to write up the code, but here is an article that will show how you can add custom fields with virtually any content to the Slider.

    As you can see it is a good bit of work just to get the video in there, then you will have to style that. More over, you will have to deal with the responsiveness and the fact that it is expecting an image.

    Then you have to deal with playing your video, which isn’t going to be easy because if your visitors move the cursor to view the video the slide may change …

    A better solution might be to use the Genesis Media Project plugin, which has a tabber designed for video. You can see it in action in the Production demo
