Reviews

Very Professional!

I’m so happy to find this plugin. I’ve been searching and searching for days. Even I tried to code Javascript myself but it didn’t work. Thank you for this plugin.
The free version works well for me, then I purchased the Pro version.
The only thing for the Pro version was that I had to unzip the file before I uploaded it. It made me confused at the beginning. I read ReadMe file and figured it out. When you unzip the download, you will find the plugin, sticky-video.zip to upload.

Not Working

I used this plugin on my site LookGadgets. I must say its a time wasting…
There is no wiki, how to use it and also its not working. It seems like the developer of this plugin is just trying to sell the pro version.
