Flexible replacement for <video/> with thumbnail previews, poster images and all the video player capabilities. Connects to Lighter CDN to serve video in proper format and size.

Customizable gallery. With responsiveness. With or without: slideshow, lightbox, navigation, previews. Without hiccups, headache.

<lr-gallery autoscroll="true"
controls="false"> <lr-img src="kitten1.jpg"</lr-img>
