My self hosted video that I embed with iframe is always autoplaying, how to disable autplay?

You can not at this point. I do not recommend the bad workarround I gave out before to used iframes with .mp4/.ogg/.mkv files directly as depending on browser (and setup, I think some IE) it may lead to download instead of embed this just uses the default browsers behavior as if you navigate to a video file and you are stick with the defaults the browser throws at you. Most disliked in the autoplay. Propper support for self hosted videos is plannend, probably even for the free version but no estimated release date.

Why are my videos not filling their container?

You are most likely use align, this plugin has a option for limiting video with with alignment. If you want your videos to fill their containers then you should not use the align=left/right/center shortcode attribute or the arve[align]= URL parameter. This assumes that you left the 'Video Maximal Width' field on the options page empty (default + recommended)

Why are videos opening full window (provider URL) when I click on them?

You most likely do not have the 'jQuery Colorbox' Plugin installed or JavaScript disabled both is needed for thumbnail mode. Another reason can be that do have JavascriptErrors or Browser addons like NoScript blocking JavaScript trom Executing.

Can you add a video provider?

I have no plans on implementing providers that include videos via JavaScript such as http://www.nicovideo.jp. I also will not implement videos from mainstream media news organizations. For others, feel free to ask.

How do I embed Iframes?

This plugin not changes anything to usual HTML <iframe> embed codes you have to use the shortcode creator dialog and paste iframe embed codes there or write them manually. They will become [iframe id="https://..."]. The id represents what is the src in HTML embeds.

Why does my Youtube video not repeat/loop?

This plugins embed is considered as 'custom player' by YouTube so you have to pass the video ID as playlist parameters to make the loop work.
