Why use Yendif Player when there is video support since WordPress 3.6 ?

Yendif Player for WordPress is not just a Video or Audio Player plugin. It also helps to build a large Video Gallery system like YouTube, Vimeo etc … in just few minutes. It also provides a video management system where you can manage all of your video from a central place. This plugin also allows for simple customisation of the videos. We are continuously adding further features to the plugin.


Do not work

Most plugins that supports RTMP do not work, include this one. On some browsers, it works and some do not, anyway this plugin maybe good for other video solution, but try to avoid it if u use RTMP.

Empêche Google Analytics de fonctionner

Lorsque l’extension est activée, Google Analytics (Universal Analytics) ne fonctionne plus. Même sur les pages qui ne contiennent pas de vidéo.

A noter qu’il y a par ailleurs une incrustation avec le nom de Yendif sur les vidéos…

Five brilliant reasons to use Yendif

Here are five really good reasons to buy the Yendif player.
1. It loads fast.
2. Its menu customization is brilliant.
3. You can mix video (MPEG4) and audio (MP3).
4. It works with MAXCDN and W3 Total Cache – both really important for those of us with rich media-sites wanting buffer-free delivery of video to any mobile device. In fact we have 26 pages each playing a different mix of 5 video and 3 audio track. You can switch between the pages and the tracks and the Yendif player load is instant – as fast as our Flash site. (We did do some fancy compression of course to reduce the file size by 80% but Yendif is delivering it instantly)
The team at Yendif, headed by Manimaran have nearly always replied to the few requests we have needed to make on the same or the next day – and solved the issue for us. Recently we did have a problem with W3 Total Cache minifying the Yendif player’s Java Script; we could not fix it; we provided Manimaran administrator access to W-P and our FTP and it was done in just a few hours. Hard as I tried, Manimaran refused to accept any payment – because Yendif backs it player!

So if you are wondering whether to invest in the Yendif commercial license, take my advice – do it!
