This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress. WP

Description offers free streaming of thousands of moving image selections and even
more audio materials. The archive-org plugin offers a simple shortcode syntax for
embedded video, audio, and playlists into WordPress post/pages.


Place the shortcode [archive-org embed=embedID] into any post or page. embedID can be found on the website at the tail end of the URL for a video or audio item or playlist. The plugin automatically recognizes playlists.

Optional Parameters:

width = width in pixels of the embedded player
height = height in pixels of the embedded player
playlist = true/false - determines whether a dropdown list of all the files is displayed


An example using all the options might look like:

[archive-org embed=VariousBannedAndCensoredCartoons width=640 height=480 playlist=true]

Audio playlists include the dropdown list within the vertical dimension you’ve specified. If you don’t want a dropdown, set the height=30. However, if you desire the dropdown playlist, you should probably set height to at least 380 pixels, as has a bug in audio playlists which make the scrollbar troublesome at smaller heights.

If you set playlist=false, or omit the playlist parameter, you won’t get the dropdown. However you can move to different playlist selections by using the track forward/backward buttons in the player. With playlist=false on audio files/playlists, it’s best to set height=30.
