SWFPut provides video players for posts and pages and widget areas, as both HTML5 and flash video.
This release includes an improvement to the responsive sizing of video: the height of a video is now limited to fit within the visible vertical area. Previously, sizing was applied to width alone. This change should be most noticeable on small devices, particularly handheld devices in landscape orientation. This change applies to desktop browsers too, although it will probably not be evident unless the browser window is at a small size.
This version has small documentation updates regarding the new visual editor interface of release 2.9, and one bugfix needed because of using a new WP function signature changed at some point before 4.x -- this would not have affected users of current WordPress, but SFWPut is still supporting (i.e., working with) WP as old as 3.0.2 (hopefully for no reason, since old versions are probably insecure and should not be used).
Sigh. Just added a forgotten file (from 2.2.2). The default video (mentioned in the 2.2.2 entry, below) would be missing, because I neglected to 'svn add' it. Simple mistake updating the repository.
This should not affect any but those who might try using a URL that SWFPut rejects. Upgrade at your convenience.
Bug fix release in response to a kind user query. URLs provided for video files are checked before they are used (good), but elsewhere in code an array key would be missing if the URL was rejected (bad), possibly leading to PHP error messages appearing on page.
Now, if a faulty URL is rejected, a default video URL is used, linking to a small video that says "OOPS [...]" and which should get the site owners attention (site visitors should find the default video inoffensive, even if unexpected).
