This plugin is work great. It's can config for any size of videos with player. It's can work with no stretching when view in full screen (up to your config)

This plugin works for all my requirements. I use this plugin to embed .mp4 videos that I created with Camtasia Studio. It's work great!

Thanks for a good, free plugin.
By , for WP 3.5.1

This company supplies a full featured video player, with personal support, for free. I have been pleased with this plugin, and have received timely support from longtail as needed.

Good job longtail teem. Keep doing what you're doing.

One of very few that integrates fully with WP
By , for WP 3.5.1

I've been looking for a HTML5 player for some time, and found a very few candidates for my requirements:
Ease of use
Integrates and adheres to WP methodology and menus
Works in all major web browsers
Automatic fallback when html fails.

One of the most annoying replies I have received from the premium plugin providers in regards to integration to WP media library (the majority of plugins today require you to copy the shortcode into the post, instead of selecting the media and then click insert media to have the required shortcode inserted to the post as is the default WP method) is:

"From past experience we know that including such a feature in a plugin that will be used in various themes (themes which are not built by us) can lead to conflicts (especially with themes that are not properly built).
For this reason we have the shortcode available which is a basic copy & paste procedure

This kind of attitude from a premium plugin is not acceptable to me, but it's been so hard to find a [premium]plugin that makes it simple, so that I can focus on content and not code.

This plugin is expensive as a premium version, but is a must if you want your site clean and without the JW watermark for one.

Thanks for making self-hosted video on WP easy!
