    Magic Zoom / Magic Thumb with Video

    The installation of the Magic Thumb extension is easy peasy. But I have already noticed two things not addressed in the Installation instructions provided for Magic Thumb for Miva Merchant. They do not explain how to add video or how to remove the Image Machine popup (which is currently hiding behind the Magic Thumb popup).

    I am assuming being able to include a video is going to involve creating a Product Custom Field. Any other tips would be great. I have also reached out to the Magic Toolbox folks via their contact form.

    IMHO this could be such a great partnership between the two if it were truly plug & play

    Seriously? No one is using the Magic Zoom extension?

      I've installed Magic Zoom Plus on a few sites (never Magic Thumb) and haven't used it for videos. All that said, I believe you can add this to the bottom of the "Product Display Layout Image Machine" template to disable the default zoom. I don't know which ReadyTheme you're using, but it's worth a shot:

      /**
      * This disables the default Miva image zoom functionality.
      */
      ImageMachine.prototype.Closeup_Open = function () {
      return false;
      }

      If not, you'll likely need to disable the thumb/zoom scripts that came with the ReadyTheme.

        Thanks - I added the snippet (albeit not sure if I did it correctly) and the default zoom is still there. Unchecking the Enabled within the Product Display Layout Image Machine was probably not what you intended for me to try. I removed the entire Head Template coding and it now only has the Magic Zoom popup. FWIW, I have not heard back from Magic Toolbox Support. I'm going to re-email them today.

          So as I am waiting to hear back from Magic Toolbox Support I thought I would try to add the Product Custom Field. I think somehow this coding needs to be incorporated into the javascript instead of putting it into the Product Display Layout of the PROD template.

          Code:
          <mvt:if expr="l.settings:product:customfield_values:custom fields:youtube">
          <a href="&mvt:product:customfield_values:customfields :youtube;" rel="thumb-id:MagicImage" data-thumb-id="zoom"></a>
          </mvt:if>
          Unless I'm not seeing where it might already be in that code (in the magic-miva-imagemachine.js file)?

              I don't think I ever did. I'll have to dig through my stuff and see what I ever did.

A Custom Field? Do I have to create thumbnails for the video? How does that get added? I did post the questions on the GitHub page.

                      Do you happen to have the image machine JavaScript handy? You probably won't be able to post the script directly but I think you can copy and paste the code into a Word.doc and attach the file to your post.

                          I have been in touch with the Magic Toolbox developer. He tweaked the file for me based on the custom field I created. That leads me to believe that the magic-miva-imagemachine.js provided is looking for a specific custom field. But when I compared the file I downloaded from the Magic Toolbox site with the one I was sent, the is NO reference to any videos at all. I do wonder why that code wasn't included.

                          I do have it working now.

                            Ahh, that is odd the code wasn't included but glad they helped sort it out.

                              Leslie, any chance you would share the file from the Magic Toolbox developer, and any other tips you have for getting this working? I wasn't able to get anywhere with it.
