vooPlayer – Ultimate Video Player for WordPress


vooPlayer is the most complete video player for WordPress that allows you to fully-customize, analyze and add superpowers to ANY video, hosted ANYWHERE including on YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, AmazonS3 or even host it on your own server or elsewhere.

Here are just few of the amazing features:

  • Add unlimited clickable text overlays and buttons (at any given moment!)
  • Add opt-in forms inside your videos
  • Set up split-tests to see what video performs best

  • Automatically redirect visitors to any URL when they finish watching the video
  • Show a clickable image ad when users pause the video
  • Set it to auto-pause the video when users leave your page, then continue the video when they return.
  • Lock your video content at a particular time and ask viewers to share it on social sites to continue.

It’s designed to work with:

  • WordPress (both posts and pages)
  • iPhone/iPad and other mobile devices (html5)

Plain simply; EXCELLENT!

Plain simply; EXCELLENT! Been an user of this ultimate player and video container hosting platform for over 3 years. And okay … maybe it’s time the plugin gets an update. But from a reliable source I’ve heard version 4 is soon to be released 😉

Wasted time

So I’m looking for a wordpress plugin to stream mp4 video files and come across this one. In the description it says nothing about needing to sign up with vooplayer. So I install the plugin and can do nothing with it until I sign up with my vooplayer account. Says I can sign up for free. I go to the site and see “try it for $1” Screw off. It might be the best video plugin in the world, but I don’t have time for bait-and-switch games.


This an amazing piece of video plugin. My favorite feature is overlays and analytics.
