Related Feature: Open Modal Video Window from a text link
Used in concert with a video component on the same page, or on a different page, this feature allows you to configure a text link to open a modal video window create by this component. 

The text link is configured using the "Select Video" icon in the Rich Text Editor toolbar. This button is located between the "Align text left" button and the "Insert image" button in the top row of the tools. 

  • Highlight the text to link, as if you were doing a regular hyperlink
  • Press the "Select Video" button.  A browser dialog will open, similar to the one used by the reference component.  It allows you to select a page, then drill in and select a particular component on the page.  
  • Select a page, select a video footer strip on the page that plays the video you want to play.
    • NOTE: The selected video need not be on the same page as the link, but if you wan to be sure somebody else doesn't delete the component you've targeted, you might want to put one on the current page, then use the "Hide Video" switch to remove it from view if necessary.
  • Click OK

This should create a link on the selected text that will open the selected video in the Video Footer Strip modal window.
