Fantastic plugin! At first, I was having bizarre styling issues, but my parent theme was to blame for using FitVids.js. Once I dequeued/deregistered that, this plugin worked perfectly. Thank you.

Nice one!

That’s exactly what I was looking for!
Easy to install, simple to use, no conflicts.
It’s the best choice!
