CSS Framework Basics Build a Website with Bootstrap Adding the Video Modal and Footer

Can someone explain how you would get the video to stop playback after closing the modal window?

I'm not sure how this would be done. Any help would be much appreciated.

hi Zack Rabie I know that your post is about 7 months old but I'll post a code that i made right now, solving your issue, just in case anybody else will end up with the same issue.

$(document).ready(function() {

  var url = $("#videoModal iframe").attr("src");
  $("#trig").on("click", function() {
    $("#videoModal iframe").attr("src", url);

  $(".close").on("click", function() {
    $("#videoModal iframe").attr("src","");

  $("#videoModal").on("hidden.bs.modal", function() {
    $("#videoModal iframe").attr("src", "");

i' ll explain a bit... the first line just read and store the value of the attribute src into a variable url. then the #trig is the name of the id that triggers the modal to show (for example the id of your anchor tag), and then set the value on the src attribute to the value of the url variable. When the user hits the close button of modal, the code just set the value of the src attribute to nothing, so the video actually stops. Similarly, the last block of code does the same thing as close button, but does it when the user clicks anywhere else on the window and the modal window hide. When the modal is totally hidden, then again it sets the src attribute value to nothing.

That feature is part of the default implementation in Bootstrap.
