Vine Embed


Vine Embed is based on the new API by Vine.
With Vine Embed you can easily share your little videos with other users.

What’s your part?

Just place a Vine link into your posts. For example

By default no shortcodes are necessary, just a link!

And that was about your part. Easy, isn’t it?

What does the plugin?

The plugin will fetch your links of your music and will convert it to a sexy video player.

Some usage examples

To embed a simple vide just embed a link like this:

There are two different types of embeds, simple and postcard. You can see the difference here.
The default type is simple. To use the postcard type you had to choose the [embed] shortcode. Something like this works:
[embed type=”postcard”][/embed]

Please visit the FAQ section for more examples.

Sounds pretty good? Install now!

Vine Embed is not associated in any way with Vine by Vine Labs, Inc..

What about sizes?

Yes, there are three different sizes. Small, big, and huge. By default the size is based on $content_width.
[embed size=”small”][/embed]
[embed size=”huge” type=”postcard”][/embed]

Is it possible to change the default video type from `simple` to `postcard`?

Yes. You can use a filter:

function ds_vine_embed_default_type( $type ) {
    return 'postcard',
add_filter( 'vine_embed_default_type', 'ds_vine_embed_default_type' );
How can I enable autoplay for audio?

Just embed the link via the shortcode and use the play-audio attribute. Example:

[embed play-audio][/embed]
Is it possible to change the default value for audio autoplay?

Yes. You can use a filter:

add_filter( 'vine_embed_default_play_audio', '__return_true' );
Can I combine all these keywords?

Yes. (But don’t try to combine the size keywords, or the sky will fall on your head)
