    my God Guys .. just what we DON'T need, another plugin that requires reconfiguring and installing php modules, creating non-secure access rights to folders, and countless hours of tweaking to get html5 to fall back .. you have not done your homework !! and to think I actually paid for licenses !! take this plugin down before YOU trash LongTail any further.

    @armdtv,

    We appreciate your feedback.

    I would just like to note:

    • The ZipArchive PHP module is quite common and is present on the various hosting environments that we tested on. Having this as a requirement for the automatic install and update is regrettable. The requirement exists as a result of including our player .zip skins with the plugin. We're working on a solution however it seems like this could cause issues for a large number of our other users.
    • Any permission changes are made to the WordPress uploads folder which is designed to have some write access as it's intended for files to be written there. This directory additionally does not contain code that is executable.
    • What difficulties were you having with HTML5 fallback? Note that HTML5 support can be challenging due to inconsistent file type support across browsers and devices.
    • The uninstall feature is designed to remove settings from your WordPress database. Deleting the files from the uploads directory is something we could add in the future. And of course it's not possible for us to delete the plugin files for you.

    If there is any other detailed feedback that you have please feel free to share. We of course want to improve the experience of our thousands of WordPress users.

    Thanks.
