Post Video


This plugin places custom fields in the edit post or page area allowing you to fill in the fields with your mp4 mobile video url and your flv video url. You can then place the video shortcode into the content area and the video will embed automatically recognizing the device that the visitor is visiting on.

So if a iPhone visitor comes to the page, they will be able to play the mp4 video automatically and if a person on a pc visits they will see the flv video automatically.


This section describes how to install the plugin and to get it working.

1. Download lastest version of Post Video.
2. Unzip and FTP the folder up to your WordPress installation and into your wp-content/plugins folder.
3. Go to your plugins admin of your WordPress installation and activate PostVideo plugin.
4. Now on any of your posts or pages you can embed a HTML5 video package by editing a page or post.
5. Fill in the required fields.
6. Add the video short code to your content wherever you want the embed. (The shortcode is [video].

That’s it!

Feedback is welcomed.


The video isn’t showing, what is wrong?

Be sure to add the video shortcode in your content area ie. [video].

Can I use other formats besides .flv and mp4?

At this time, no. We will be adding more in the future, if you visit the forum you can request new features.

Where can I find support?
