If you include a link to a Flickr video, and click on the image, then the browser window becomes unusable. The lightbox looks wrong (small image in upper-left corner), and you can't click on the close button.

Two examples:


This is particularly clumsy in the preview window (you can't access your text anymore). I managed to get my post back by going into the developer tools and remove the lightbox div, but people who don't know how to do that would have to restart their posting.

Thanks!

Should be fixed.  Looks like you were posting them as images.  The lightbox is not yet compatible with video so if you want to post video you'll need to link to the video page or use the "embed" code at flickr to embed the video until then.

Just an update that you no longer need to use flickr's embed code for video (or 360 VR photo spheres).  Simply post a link to the page or image (like you would still images) and the video will automatically embed.  The lightbox is now also compatible with video so if you are cycling thru the still images the videos will also appear in the lightbox.  For example, click the bike image below and the video above should appear to the left and the 360 VR below to the right.

This should also fix other issues with flickr's embed code.  For one it never played nice with mobile (when you rotated your screen flickr wasn't smart enough to resize the embedded video if it was smaller or larger than the new viewport) but now that we are trapping video embeds we can force the resize.
