Easy Video Player Plugin Usage

Settings Configuration

It's pretty easy to set up this plugin. Once you have installed the plugin simply navigate to the Settings menu where you will be able to configure some options. Mostly you just to need check the "Enable jQuery" option. That will allow the plugin to make use of jQuery library.

Embedding Shortcodes for the Videos

Now it's time to finally embed a video shortcode. To do this create a new post/page and use the following shortcode:

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4"]

here, url is a shortcode parameter that you need to replace the actual URL of the video file.

Video Autoplay

If you want a particular video to start playing when the page loads you can set the "autoplay" option to "true":

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4" autoplay="true"]

Control Size

By default, the player takes up the full width of the content area. You can easily control the size by specifying a width for it:

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4" width="500"]

The height will be automatically determined based on the ratio (please see the "Control Player Ratio section" for details).

Control Player Ratio

The player ratio is set to "0.417" by default. But you can override it by specifying a different ratio in the shortcode:

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4" ratio="0.345"]

Control Player Skin

By default, the player uses the "minimalist" skin. But you can override it by specifying a different skin in the shortcode:

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4" class="functional"]

Video Loop

If you want a particular video to start playing again when it ends you can set the "loop" option to "true":

[evp_embed_video url="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/videos/myvid.mp4" loop="true"]
