    Where do I find the settings page? or are there any help docs to understand how to set up and use this plugin?

    Appreciate your inputs.

    Not setup required, all you need to do is:

    1. Install and activate the plugin
    2. Follow best practices for inserting videos into WordPress, or enable the auto-embed option under Settings > Media (more details here)

    Your videos will automatically be sized to fit the resolution of the device or browser.

    Great.

    Can you point me to where I can read about WordPress best practices for inserting videos.

    Try this if you are wanting to embed Youtube or some other embed that isn't working: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vipers-video-quicktags/

    @CrtWatcha The WordPress auto-embed's feature renders the Viper's Video Quicktags plugin obsolete, and to my knowledge your videos won't be responsive.

    @Riyaz, to answer your question, check out the WordPress codex documentation on Embeds.

    Thanks for your links to the WordPress codex docs, but I'm getting an issue where the maximum width isn't being set properly. This is the paragraph of text I can't get to work:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds
    "You can also opt to wrap the URL in the [embed] shortcode. It will accomplish the same effect, but does not require the URL to be on its own line and the "Auto-embeds" setting to be enabled. It also allows you to set a maximum (but not fixed) width and height, like so: [embed width="123" height="456"]...[/embed]"

    Here is my code:

    [embed width="440" height="218"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKBnhLYNs9c[/embed]

    But it's not working - http://www.sonicclamp.com/indev/videos/

    Any ideas?

    Hey Aaron,

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've just deployed version 1.1 which should address this issue, using that [embed] width attribute value as a max-width for responsive embeds. I've added a new demonstration for the [embed] shortcode to the bottom of the example page here:

    http://www.kevinleary.net/responsive-video-embeds-plugin-example/

    See the WordPress embed shortcode example section at the bottom. Can you upgrade your plugin from 1.0 to 1.1 and let me know if this resolves the issue?

    but it would not load.
    "Waiting for http://www.kevinleary.net..." keeps on flashing???
