Very good plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a very good plugin. Especially the idea of taking automatically the video and thumbnail from youtube is great!

I would like to see it working with colorbox and embed youtube code in the future, so as to avoid middle players.

Sounds Great But Not
By , for WP 3.7.1

Looking at the screenshots etc this seemed to be just the ideal video plugin I was looking for.

BUT - when I try to add a YouTube video to a gallery I get an error

"Please enable the PHP setting allow_url_fopen"

Now, while the explanation for this is available in the support forum, I simply object to having to contact my web provider to get them to tweak files I don't have access to in order to make this plugin work.

The whole point of the WordPress environment is that we can quickly build sites and add functionality. This just doesn't happen if I have to queue up to speak or chat with a support person, go through security clearance with them, explain the problem and then coerce them into eventually making that change for me - meanwhile my site development grinds to a halt.

Given that numerous other video plugins are able to make calls to YouTube without this tweak, why can't the developer just code his plugin in the same way?

Video Gallery Plugin Review
By , for WP 3.7.1

Simply the BEST and Easiest EVER!

I've tried virtually every video embedding and editing plugin I can find and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this one.

This is quite simply the best video embedder I've found and it's so easy to use!

I set up a full 11 video course on one of my sites Make Money Online in under 30 minutes. How amazing is that?

Many thank yous to Praveen Rajan for coming up with such an easy to use plugin .... Kudos, Praveen!

The editing of the player is easy and just requires changing the size options, not only that it's so easy to download and import skins for the JW Player, to make your videos stand out from the crowd.

Uploading videos is quick and easy and you can create many different galleries to upload various different suites of videos. Embedding the videos in your WordPress pages and widgets couldn't be any easier. Honestly, my cat could do this if he had opposable thumbs!!


Keep up the good work, Praveen - I'll be watching for more from you, in the future!

    You're my plugin KING

Does it support adding a VideoStir floating clip with a transparent background?
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin seems great.
Does it have the same functionality that VideoStir plugin has?: http://wordpress.org/plugins/videostir-spokesperson/

It gives you the ability to automatically create and add your video (DIY).It automatically changes the background of the video to be transparent or replaces background with an image (without greenscreen).
