Reviews

Won’t work when adding a video via URL

When you want to create a video player, a dialogue box pops up. There’s a place to add the URL of a video, as well as place to add the title, and a place to upload a thumbnail. Next to the place to add the URL of a video, there is a button to add add the video. (I can’t remember the text that is on the button.) There is no other button in the pop-up.

When I click on the only button in the pop-up, nothing happens.

Great product, helpful support

As a new website developer I am really learning everything from scratch. the plugin worked straight away and was easy to configure to get the settings I wanted. No problems with compatability but it seems to work best with MP4 videos as I had problems with uploading other video types eg mov. Support team were great in diagnosing the problem and once the problem was identified we were able to upload MP4 videos to player and problem sorted

Advantage & Disadvantage

Advantage:
This video album is simple for display and update, viewing the images and titles by scrolling on the side or bottom in instead of listing all thumbnail images all over the whole page.
You can manually change display order by Drag and drop the section in update.

Disadvantage:
No ASC & DESC option for display and update.
Unable to auto expanding the title name to second line if it is too long for Responsive purpose.
Other than that I like it.
