[vimeo id=123456 ]no ugly URLs, no unnecessary Shortcode wrapping.
https://vimeo.com/124400795 on its own line will produce full responsive embeds. If you already use this with WordPress default, this is the perfect drop-in replacement to make everything responsive, no need to do anything.
Extremly customizable with support for anything providers offer to customize embeds. Other plugins offer some of this features with huge bloated dialogs, ARVE is different, it just lets you do anything you want if you have a few seconds to look up what the parameters do.
Here we are starting the video at the 30 seconds mark, disable the fullscreen button, switch to YouTubes light theme and set the aspect_ratio to cinemascope.
the same thing can be done with a shortcode:
[youtube id="Q6goNzXrmFs" parameters="start=30 fs=0 theme=light" aspect_ratio="21:9" ]
[vimeo id="124858722" mode="lazyload" maxwidth="400" align="left" ]] This is a demo of a aligned lazyloaded video [...]
This is a demo of a aligned lazyloaded video that has a maximal width set and will grow on click before loading the video.
You can open up a lightbox with a normal link [youtube id=Q6goNzXrmFs mode=link-lightbox link_text="click me" ] with this sortcode:
[youtube id="Q6goNzXrmFs" mode="link-lightbox" link_text="click me" ]
We can also center videos and open then inside a Lightboxbox.
[youtube id="Q6goNzXrmFs" mode="lazyload-lightbox" maxwidth="600" align="center" ]
Contrary to what you might think, thumbnail in ARVE does not nessasary mean small images. You can provide your own images with thumbnail="https://your.image.url" or thumbnail="1234" where 1234 is the ID of the image in your WP Media Gallery. Most providers, which support automatic thubnails also support HD thumbnail images and this plugin will get the highest aviable size.
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!!!! review by happyecho
I used a lot of high ranking plug-ins but they still broke my design. Downloaded this and worked right away. Thanks! review by crconnell89
