    Hmm you might want to use a plugin for this, I can see it might be conflicting with the virtue-toolkit plugin and your going to want the video to be responsive.

    i've just discovered that default WP's [video] shortcode does not work on posts with Virtue as theme.

    they do open fine as attachment page (meaning once you upload your self-hosted video, you can only insert it as link to an attachment page), but cannot insert in post using [video ...][/video] shortcode, Virtue's class="videofit" will have no content.

    i've seen a couple of posts where Kadence Themes seems to be aware of such conflict: any plan to resolve it? any tip on how to solve this? or at least could you suggest a good plugin which is not likely to introduce further conflicts?

    Well you can use any plugin but I recommend using pagebuilder so your videos are responsive: http://wordpress.org/plugins/siteorigin-panels/

    right, well, thanks for the tip on the plugin, in the end i resorted to use JW Player.

    and thanks for the post on self-hosted videos, which i was already aware of, but does not apply to my case.

    anyway, i was hoping you'd mention possible forthcoming fixes to your theme, given that 1) it's conflicting with a core (and useful) WP feature, which all themes and plugins should at least try to comply with and 2) you're already aware of the fault.

    hopefully that will come some time soon.

    The conflict is in the virtue toolkit plugin and it has been phasing out for a little while next update to the plugin which should come this week will have it completely removed.
