Advanced Responsive Video Embedder

Easy responsive video embeds via URL (like WordPress) or Shortcodes. Normal, Lazyload or Thumbnails that open a Colorbox - Your choice!

This is very likely the one and only plugin you will ever need to handle video embeds on your WordPress site(s)

It lets you embed videos from many providers with full responsive sizes via URL or Shortcodes. Let your sites load faster with Lazyload mode (Provider must support native thumbnails). Show videos as thumbnails and let them open in Colorbox. Clean and easy shortcode syntax.

The Plugin has a set of customization options to embed the video exactly as you like, this includes custom URL parameters. Defaults to make the videos as unobtrusive as possible and keep your visitors on your site are already included.

Known limitations

  • At least some parts of the Plugin (youtube embeds via URL and maybe more) are broken if the 'Shortcode Embeds' Jetpack module is activated. Please deactivate this module if you want to use ARVE for now.

Roadmap

Pull requests on Github to help me out with this would be great.

  • Make objects lazyload (currently effects twitch only)
  • The Jetpack 'Shortcode Embeds' module provides some useful shortcodes not related to video but currently breaks if activated. Figure out if its possible to make them work together.
