Free Responsive iframe Video Embeds

Use the [iplayerhd] shortcode to easily add responsive iframe-based video embeds to your website (YouTube, Vimeo, iPlayerHD and more...)

While being tailored for iPlayerHD Video Hosting users, the plugin should work with any video which can be embedded via an iframe. Simply set the width and height attributes to fit your video's format and you're all set!

iPlayerHD users can get a shortcode link with all of the required parameters automatically though the iPlayerHD CMS.

iPlayerHD users also get additional options such as playlist embeds and popup embeds.

Shortcode examples:

[iplayerhd src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ"] - by omitting width and height parameters the video is embedded in 16:9 format

[iplayerhd src="//iplayerhd.com/player/video/5ae4df93-5734-4e29-9f2e-15ff9056b7e4?cbartype=auto" width="1024" height="768"]

Shortcode parameters:

  • src - source of the iframe, defaults to: http://iplayerhd.com/player/video/5ae4df93-5734-4e29-9f2e-15ff9056b7e4?cbartype=auto
  • width - width of video in pixels, defaults to 640 - if the video is in 16:9 format you can omit this parameter
  • height - height of video in pixels, defaults to 360 - if the video is in 16:9 format you can omit this parameter
  • popup - for iPlayerHD users only - embeds a thumbnail which opens the video in a lightbox-style popup, defaults to 'false'
  • player-mode - for iPlayerHD users only - possible values: 'video', 'playlistRight', 'playlistBottom' - user for embedding iPlayerHD playlists, defaults to 'video'
