Why I did this? The Wistia Plugin caused me great pains. I tried a few other code snippet plugins, but they then caused issues with "other" plugins.

Known issues: - "Add this" plugin can cause an error with conflicts in Jquery or Wistia JS files http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/addthis/

Future developments: - Player customisation - Social Sharing tools - Call to action plugin - More control over email capture plugin

Advanced Users Only: Feel free to edit code to make this work for you. Just go to "embed builder" in Wistia, set up video how you want it. Select Embed Type: Inline Show advanced options - Select API

You will see the section: "


script> wistiaEmbed = "

Duplicate this in the wistiavid.php file function PlaceWistiaVid($args) - be sure to watch the commas
