Support » Plugin: Featured Video Plus » Fix for videos over SSL

  • Resolved vwbusguy


    Youtube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion videos will not work over https:// due to the unnecessary hardcoding of the $src parameter in php/general.php . When viewing pages with your code over https, the videos simply fail to load on most modern browsers due to mixed-content.

    In each case, simply removing the unnecessarily hard-coded protocol works:

    $src = '//'...

    $src = '//'

    $dm['src'] = '//

    We’ve been making this edit internally and supporting SSL for WordPress is an absolute must. I hope you’ll consider adding this to a future update to save us and others the upgrade maintenance.

    That being said, the plugin is working great besides this. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the feedback!
    But I noticed dailymotion by default offers its embed code with http://. Not sure why they prefer it this way?



    Many thanks! Sorry I missed you were on GitHub. I’ll be glad to submit patches via pull request next time.
