I would like to pop a video into a lightbox to view - when image link on home page is clicked..

Is there a module for this or what would be the best approach?

I am looking at the you tube gallery...

am i correct to think that to use this I have to create a 'YouTubeGallery' page.

can I not include this on my home page? as i only want one video link on the page, as well as all the other stuff on my homepage like news feed etc... does this make sense?

Should I just make my home page type 'YouTubeGallery' in order to use this functionality?

I think one of Uncle Cheese's modules does this. I cant remember if it was Image Gallery.

You can find a vid on this here: http://www.youtube.com/user/unclecheese323
