    I didn't want to rate, sorry I put one star.
    Just to say that I found Stream Video plugin vers 1.3.5 not compatible with Responsive Theme by ThemeID. I was using Responsive child theme as suggested. This combination made page editing input areas unusable; mouse arrow only on input boxes; input boxes not showing the content either. Deactivate Stream Viewer & text input returned to as normal functionality. Rodrigo's directions (video & screen shot)did not match wordpress interface. Rodrigo's web site does say "outdated info" on video & screen shot.

    I had hoped I'd get video working straight away, but no joy. Sorry Rodrigo, you have obviously given it a fair amount of work.

    ThemeID forum search shows they suggest for those looking for an alternative.

    This plug-in is old, it wasn't designed to be responsive, in fact no one was talking about HTML5 video when this plug-in was developed.

    The main idea of the Stream Video Player is to scrub to any time on a video without waiting to load the entire thing, the second goal was to make it easy to use, and the third goal is to use only free/libre software, check this guide: http://youtu.be/NShb8pR_dIc

    have a flash embed movie to be responsive is not an easy task, I don't have the time to develop that functionality, but you can download the code and modify anything you need to achieve the responsive functionality, here is a link with some hints: http://www.webmonkey.com/2011/12/how-to-scale-embedded-media-in-responsive-designs/

    then, when you are done with that extra functionality you can give your fixes back to me and the plug-in so everyone have the responsive functionality, remember that the idea of open/free software is sharing and helping each other.

    again, I don't have the time to add this particular functionality, but if you want to pay for it, I'll be more than happy to code it.
