Bootstrap 3 and Youtube in Modal

Problem

I'm trying to use the Modal feature from Bootstrap 3 to show my Youtube video. It works, but I can't click on any buttons in the Youtube video.

Any help on this?

Here's my code:

<div id="link">My video</div>

<div id="myModal" class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
    <div class="modal-dialog">
        <div class="modal-content">
            <div class="modal-header">
                <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">×</button>
            </div>
            <div class="modal-body">
                <iframe width="400" height="300" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="js/jquery-1.10.1.min.js"><\/script>')</script>
<script src="js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $('#link').click(function () {
        var src = 'http://www.youtube.com/v/FSi2fJALDyQ&amp;autoplay=1';
        $('#myModal').modal('show');
        $('#myModal iframe').attr('src', src);
    });

    $('#myModal button').click(function () {
        $('#myModal iframe').removeAttr('src');
    });
</script>

Solution

I found this problem (or the problem I found and described at https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/issues/10489) related to CSS3 transformation (translation) on the .modal.fade .modal-dialog class.

In bootstrap.css you will find the lines shown below:

.modal.fade .modal-dialog {
  -webkit-transform: translate(0, -25%);
      -ms-transform: translate(0, -25%);
          transform: translate(0, -25%);
  -webkit-transition: -webkit-transform 0.3s ease-out;
     -moz-transition: -moz-transform 0.3s ease-out;
       -o-transition: -o-transform 0.3s ease-out;
          transition: transform 0.3s ease-out;
}

.modal.in .modal-dialog {
  -webkit-transform: translate(0, 0);
      -ms-transform: translate(0, 0);
          transform: translate(0, 0);
}

Replacing these lines with the following will show the movie correctly (in my case):

.modal.fade .modal-dialog {
  -webkit-transition: -webkit-transform 0.3s ease-out;
     -moz-transition: -moz-transform 0.3s ease-out;
       -o-transition: -o-transform 0.3s ease-out;
          transition: transform 0.3s ease-out;
}

.modal.in .modal-dialog {

}

MMhh... Could you post your entire HTML doc and what browser/version your using?

I recreated your page and tested in 3 browsers (Chrome, FF, IE8). I was able to stop and start the awesome WDS4 trailer without any issues. Here is my code:

    <div id="myModal" class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
        <div class="modal-dialog">
            <div class="modal-content">

                <div class="modal-header">

                </div>

                <div class="modal-body">
                    <iframe width="400" height="300" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

    <!-- jQuery (necessary for Bootstrap's JavaScript plugins) -->
    <script src="jq.js"></script>
    <!-- Include all compiled plugins (below), or include individual files as needed -->
    <script src="bootstrap.min.js"></script>
    <script>
    $('#link').click(function () {
        var src = 'http://www.youtube.com/v/FSi2fJALDyQ&amp;autoplay=1';
        $('#myModal').modal('show');
        $('#myModal iframe').attr('src', src);
    });

    $('#myModal button').click(function () {
        $('#myModal iframe').removeAttr('src');
    });
</script>
  </body>
</html>

You could try bringing the Z-Index of your modal player higher in the stack?

$('#myModal iframe').css("z-index","999");

I have one tip for you!

I would use:

$('#myModal').on('hidden.bs.modal', function () {
    $('#myModal iframe').removeAttr('src');
})

instead of:

$('#myModal button').click(function () {
    $('#myModal iframe').removeAttr('src');
});

Because you can also close the modal without the button, so there for with this code it will remove the video every time the modal will hide.

Here is another solution: Force HTML5 youtube video

Just add ?html5=1 to the source attribute on the iframe, like this:

<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/dP15zlyra3c?html5=1"></iframe>

                        <span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span><span class="sr-only">Close</span>

If you don't want to edit the bootstrap CSS or all of the above doesn't help you at all (like in my case), there's an easy fix to get the video running in a modal on Firefox.

You just need to remove the "fade" class from the modal and as it opens the "in" class, too:

$('#myModal').on('shown.bs.modal', function () {
    $('#myModal').removeClass('in');
});

I had this same issue - I had just added the font-awesome cdn links - commenting out the bootstrap one below solved my issue.. didnt really troubleshoot it as the font awesome still worked -

I put together this html/jQuery dynamic YouTube video modal script that auto plays the YouTube video when the trigger (link) is clicked, the trigger also contains the link to play. The script will find the native bootstrap modal call and open the shared modal template with the data from the trigger. See Below and let me know what you think. I would love to hear thoughts...

HTML MODAL TRIGGER:

 <a href="#" class="btn btn-default" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#videoModal" data-theVideo="http://www.youtube.com/embed/loFtozxZG0s" >VIDEO</a>

HTML MODAL VIDEO TEMPLATE:

<div class="modal fade" id="videoModal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="videoModal" aria-hidden="true">
  <div class="modal-dialog">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-body">
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
        <div>
          <iframe width="100%" height="350" src=""></iframe>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

THE JQUERY FUNCTION:

//FUNCTION TO GET AND AUTO PLAY YOUTUBE VIDEO FROM DATATAG
function autoPlayYouTubeModal(){
  var trigger = $("body").find('[data-toggle="modal"]');
  trigger.click(function() {
    var theModal = $(this).data( "target" ),
    videoSRC = $(this).attr( "data-theVideo" ), 
    videoSRCauto = videoSRC+"?autoplay=1" ;
    $(theModal+' iframe').attr('src', videoSRCauto);
    $(theModal+' button.close').click(function () {
        $(theModal+' iframe').attr('src', videoSRC);
    });   
  });
}

THE FUNCTION CALL:

$(document).ready(function(){
  autoPlayYouTubeModal();
});

using $('#introVideo').modal('show'); conflicts with bootstrap proper triggering. When you click on the link that opens the Modal it will close right after completing the fade animation. Just remove the $('#introVideo').modal('show'); (using bootstrap v3.3.2)

Here is my code:

<link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.2/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<!-- triggering Link -->
<a id="videoLink" href="#0" class="video-hp" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#introVideo"><img src="img/someImage.jpg">toggle video</a>


<!-- Intro video -->
<div class="modal fade" id="introVideo" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="introductionVideo" aria-hidden="true">
  <div class="modal-dialog modal-lg">
    <div class="modal-content">
      <div class="modal-header">
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close"><span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span></button>
      </div>
      <div class="modal-body">
        <div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">
            <iframe class="embed-responsive-item allowfullscreen"></iframe>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>


<script src="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.4/js/bootstrap.min.js"> </script>

<script>
  //JS

$('#videoLink').click(function () {
    var src = 'https://www.youtube.com/embed/VI04yNch1hU;autoplay=1';
    // $('#introVideo').modal('show'); <-- remove this line
    $('#introVideo iframe').attr('src', src);
});


$('#introVideo button.close').on('hidden.bs.modal', function () {
    $('#introVideo iframe').removeAttr('src');
})

Bootstrap does provide modal pop-up functionality out of box.

Found this in another thread, and it works great on desktop and mobile - which is something that didn't seem true with some of the other solutions. Add this script to the end of your page:

<!--Script stops video from playing when modal is closed-->
<script>
    $("#myModal").on('hidden.bs.modal', function (e) {
        $("#myModal iframe").attr("src", $("#myModal iframe").attr("src"));
    });
</script>

user3084135's answer worked well as a base for me, but I also needed to incorporate:

  1. The "video" tag for locally-hosted video as well as the "iframe" tag for externally-hosted video
  2. Ensure that the source was removed however the modal was dismissed
  3. The solution worked in a Bootstrap responsive design
  4. All videos auto-play on modal open
  5. Multiple modals are possible

My finished solution looks like this:

MODAL TRIGGER BUTTON

<a href="#" class="portfolio-link" data-toggle="modal" data-frame="iframe" data-target="#portfolioModal1" data-theVideo="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xxxxxxxx">

The data-frame attribute can be either "iframe" or "video" to reflect the appropriate tag type: iframe for external vids, video for locally-hosted.

BOOTSTRAP RESPONSIVE VIDEO CONTAINERS

iFrame:

<div align="center" class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">
  <iframe width="420" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>

video:

<div align="center" class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9">
    <video width="640" height="364" controls>
        <source src="" type="video/mp4">
        Your browser does not support the video tag.
    </video>                               
</div>

These both reside within the standard Bootstrap responsive modal divs.

JQUERY SCRIPT

<script>
 $(document).ready(function(){
    function autoPlayModal(){
      var trigger = $("body").find('[data-toggle="modal"]');
      trigger.click(function() {
        var theFrame = $(this).data( "frame" );
        var theModal = $(this).data( "target" );
        videoSRC = $(this).attr( "data-theVideo" ); 
        if (theFrame == "iframe") {
          videoSRCauto = videoSRC+"?autoplay=1" ;
        } else {
          videoSRCauto = videoSRC;
          $("[id*=portfolioModal] video").attr('autoplay','true');
        }
        $(theModal+' '+ theFrame).attr('src', videoSRCauto); 
        $("[id*=portfolioModal]").on('hidden.bs.modal', function () {
            $("[id*=portfolioModal] "+ theFrame).removeAttr('src');
        })
      });
    }

  autoPlayModal();
});
</script>

Since autoplay works differently with iframe and video tags, a conditional is used to deal with each. To allow multiple modals, a wildcard selector is used to identify them (portfolioModal1-6 in my case).
