The lightbox is open but in the "ipad app", nothing append, it's just white !

Update:

For YouTube links with the lightbox, edit the URL to point to the "embed"

From:
https://www.youtube.com/?watch=xyz

OR

https://youtu.be/xyz

TO

https://youtube.com/embed/xyz

Where "xyz" is the unique ID of the video


I think this active bug in iOS 8 is the cause of the white screen:
