Advanced Responsive Video Embedder

Easy responsive video embeds via URLs or shortcodes. Perfect drop-in replacement for WordPress' default embeds. Best plugin for videos?

The best WordPress plugin for videos? Supports close to everything you can imagine, still keeping it easy & simple.

It is very likely the one and only plugin you will ever need to handle video embeds on your WordPress site(s).

Simple • Lightweight • Responsive • Customizable

Purchase Pro Addon


  • Embeds via pasting the URL in its own line just like WordPress!
  • Supports almost every video hoster that supports iframe embed codes.
  • Optionally use Shortcodes instead
  • One single button for all providers (for most providers not required because of URL embeds, but allows to create custom shortcodes with advanced features within seconds)
  • Responsive embeds with CSS, much better then with JS IMO
  • Tries to be as unobtrusive as possible, sets ‘hide brand’ variables if supported, disabled related videos at the end … to help keep people on your Site rather then going to YouTube or keep watching videos
  • Clean Shortcode syntax `[vimeo id=123456 ]` no ugly URLs, no unnecessary shortcode wrapping.
  • Autostart (for providers that support them)
  • Custom URL Parameters to use all options providers offer
  • Optional maximal width
  • Video alignment
  • General iframe support for any provider that not included that support responsive iframe embeds or any URL you with to display in a iframe.
  • Detailed description of options in-place.
  • Custom Aspect Ratio

Additional Features with the Pro Addon

    for supporting my long time work on this plugin. Tons of hours, weekends … always worked on improving it 3+ years.
  • Lazyload mode
    Make your site load faster by loading only a image instead of the entire video player on pageload.
  • Lazyload -> Lightbox
    Shows the Video in a Lightbox after clicking a preview image

    Use simple links as triggers for lightboxed videos

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Finally something that works

So I have a responsive theme but on pages with you tube videos it wasn't making the you tube videos fit in the mobile screen. I have spent the last hour trying many plugins and researching on google and finally I installed this. And I didn't have to update any settings or anything just refreshed a post with videos and all the sudden it is beautiful and responsive on my mobile phone!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Only Plug-in that worked

I used a lot of high ranking plug-ins but they still broke my design. Downloaded this and worked right away. Thanks!
