WooCommerce Support

This plugin came out of a real need with many plugins available out there yet none provides a good integration with WooCommerce.
Really Simple Featured Video plugin provides a straightforward implementation for WooCommerce Product Featured Video, with which your set featured video loads directly into product thumbnails along with any other product images.

Enable/Disable Post Types Support

You can enable/disable support for post types via the settings page though by default featured videos are enabled for blog posts.

Enable/Disable Video Controls, Autoplay, Loop & Picture-In-Picture

You can manage everything for the featured videos, by setting them accordingly, options for these are available at settings page.

Mute Video Sound

You also have an option to control video sound, set this at the settings page.

Shortcodes

There are also shortcodes to embed featured video at any post, page or product you want.

[rsfv] shortcode is for displaying set featured video of the individual post anywhere in the post.

[rsfv_by_postid] shortcode is for displaying featured video of any post anywhere you want, you just need to pass a vaild post id to it e.g. [rsfv_by_postid post_id=”281″]

I was looking for a plugin to create woocommerce galleries with videos hosted on the web itself and this plugin is simple and effective. I would like to know if there is any way to prevent the video from coming out in a landscape when you open the product page in the browser, I have tried with several browsers (chrome, edge, opera, etc) and with different wordpress templates and this little incident always appears . Thanks for creating such a great app.

I managed to get MP4 videos working in the product gallery for FREE, with muted auto-play. I had to edit line 92 of the 'really-simple-featured-video/includes/FrontEnd.php' file as follows: $html = '<div class="woocommerce-product-gallery__image rsfv-video__wrapper" data-thumb="' . RSFV_PLUGIN_URL . 'assets/images/video_frame.png"><video class="rsfv-video" id="rsfv_video_' . $product->get_id() . '" controls="" src="' . $video_url . '" style="max-width:100%;display:block;" autoplay autoPictureInPicture loop muted></video></div>' . $html; Also, I had to disable autoplay in the back end (I forget which file). Other than that, it's a gem! I think you really need a better thumbnail image for the plugin, though. It looks really drab and nobody would be interested in it.
