    I want to make a “Watch Video” button in Elementor Pro that opens the video in a Lightbox. I can't figure out how to do this. I know how to open a video in a Lighbox using the Video widget, but I want to do the same thing with a “Watch Video” button. The link in the Buttons widget opens the video on YouTube, but not in a Lightbox. If you know how to do this, please reply.

    Have you considered doing it in an Elementor Popup? I have done it in an Elementor Popup, it works really well. 

    Then you can link the button action to the popup.

    Thanks Adam. The videos open in a Lightbox now using the Elementor video widget. They have a secondary “watch video” button below to draw attention to them, and the button won't open the videos in a Lightbox, it goes to Youtube. See attached screenshot. Can I link the button to the video widget some way, similar to what you suggest for the Popup?  The videos need to be on the page in a static way. Not sure a Popup will work with my design needs. If the button can be linked to the existing video widget that already uses a Lightbox, that would be ideal, but I don't know how to do it. Any thoughts? Thank you for your time!
