Support » Plugin: CMP - Coming Soon & Maintenance Plugin by NiteoThemes » Can’t embed video player

  • Resolved jstuts5797

    (@jstuts5797)


    I would like to use this plugin to have a main background image with my own text and header logo (which all works) but I also want to embed a short video in the middle of the page. The only way I can get video to work with your plugin is to have the video play as the background. I do not want that. I want a picture as a background and the video to be in the middle. Everytime I try, it appears in the editor it embeds fine, but when I preview or view the page after saving, the video doesn’t show up instead you see the embed code itself! If this plugin can’t do that, I’ll have to move on to another.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello @jstuts5797, yes we disabled shortcodes for a compatibility reasons. You are right about embedding videos and other external content!

    I have just released update 2.6.2 which adds support for videos and other embedded links!

    Oh by the way, you could always embed local video file via add media without requiring any shortcode, check out https://niteothemes.com/dev/?cmp_preview=true

    AMAZING! Thank you so much!!!

    ooops… Just tried this.. now the coming soon screen is also outputting a list of my posts. I don’t need it to do that, lol

    lol! Don’t you have some kind of shortcode in the CMP Content to display latest posts or something like that?

    What I can see it comes from Siteorigin Page builder..

    No shortcodes other than for the video. Yes my site is mostly built with page builder. I noticed other elements also showing on the landing page as well.

    Oh yes, they it is because they hijack the_content filter, which adds their code to every page..

    OK, I have just released 2.6.3 – could you please try that if that works now? – it should disable SiteOrigin but keeps embed videos working…

    thank you

    Oh maybe also try it without the shortcode for a video – you do not need that. insert Youtube link directly or insert local media video via “add media” icon to content

    I’m not seeing any plugin updates. Also I did use the “add media” button to embed the video.

    Got it now! But the update didn’t fix it =(

    yes, that is unfortunate!

    I am worried I have to revert back, as there might be many users using SiteOrigin and might be affected right after update!

    BUT – I made some small cahnges so local videos as you have should be working..

    Thanks for your feedback again – I will look into embedding external YT or Vimeo videos as it might be nice feature to have.

    .. 2.6.4.. 🙂

    Very good! Sounds good to me! I’m sorry I broke your update! I feel bad now. Thank you so much for your help and efforts!

    Just circling back around to let you know that #1 going back did indeed fix the siteorigin issues… and #2 the local video embed did indeed work! Thank you so much! Since this actually did resolve my issue/request I will mark this as solved! Thanks again!

    I am happy it works for you now.
