Turnkey Software

I’ve install it and use it with no other problems.
If you’re in need of such a software at least give it a try. Probably you won’t try other similar plugins 🙂

Great Tool

For me it was a really useful plugin.
The plugin is well documented and if you read it, there is no need to chat with the support.

Complete GARBAGE

First of all these people will provide absolutely ZERO advice,support,help ANYTHING unless you pay them to “install” the plugin.

Second: Next day I had this installed they updated it. Soon as I clicked to update the plugin my entire site crashed 500 error. Had to go in and manually delete the plugin to get my website back up.

Point being: JUNK,WORTHLESS do NOT download!

Turnkey video community solution

Free and open source solution to build an online video community, this plugin ships with a tons of features, from video storing, video conversion, ability to add a watermark to video and much more.
Super compatible with HTML5 player with the ability to monetize with overlay ads or with an integrataed pay-per-view membershib
It also offer live broadcast but i did not try it out, since i only offer VOD
