Nice, but could use some more easy to integrate page features

It’s a great start to this plugin. Would be really great if you could control some of the features of the videos. Would love to see these features in the future:

• Ability to control alignment of the video once in the page – WP align tools to work with BC shortcode.
• Ability to add “Responsive” wrapper so we don’t have to write code to get it to do this
• Ability to remove all skinning of videos – basically a way to control what the players look like.

Right now this is all you get for a short code. EXAMPLE:

[bc_video video_id=”XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX” account_id=”XXXXXXXXXX” player_id=”default” width=”500″ height=”250″]

It makes it hard to show our clients how to add videos to their page without them knowing a bit of code.

Any word on when some of these features might be available directly in the plugin?

Good plugin if Work

good idea BUT its not working.. whenever we try to upload any video the whole server run out of resources.. even a 4 mb video can crash the whole server. I am not sure what is the purpose of this plugin if a user can’t upload a video??
