Magnific Popup & Vimeo – Force Close After Video Finishes

A quick code snippet for everybody tonight involving Magnific Popup & Vimeo. A client recently requested the Magnific Popup window to automatically close after the video had ended and simultaneously a new popup to occur with a call to action for the visitor. While we’re not going to get into the second part in this tutorial, we will discuss how to make the Vimeo popup automatically close using the Vimeo player API and the Magnific Popup callbacks.

First, we need to include the Vimeo API script on our page. That is accomplished by loading the following script:

Next, we’ll add the appropriate Magnific Popup javascript as well as the necessary callback.

    type: 'iframe',
    mainClass: 'mfp-fade',
    removalDelay: 160,
    preloader: false,
    fixedContentPos: true,
    callbacks: {
	    open: function() {
	      var iframe = jQuery('.mfp-content iframe');
		    var player = new Vimeo.Player(iframe);
		    player.on('ended', function() {

And that’s all there is to it! Enjoy this and put it to use in your development & marketing projects.
