Show text on hover over video but still allow video to play when clicked

Recommended Posts


I've added the following code to allow text to show when you hover over a certain image. This works great.

But when I use the same code for text over a video, the hover works, but I'm not able to play the video. Does anyone know if it's possible to have the text show on hover but still be able to play the video underneath?


@media only screen and (min-width: 640px){
#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1679943741814_88486 {
opacity: 0;
 transition: opacity 1s

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1679943741814_88486:hover {
opacity: 1;
transition: opacity 1s

Hello, wondering if this was solved, I'm having a similar issue and am a CSS newbie. Just trying to make it work!

Recently I solved this, but instead of play on click, it will open lightbox video on click. If you agree this, I can give you a quick guide.

Email me if you have need any help (free, of course.). Answer within 24 hours.
