Support » Plugin: FV Flowplayer Video Player » Lighthouse SEO issue

  • Resolved stebato

    I have webpages where the video is available in both mobile and full mode. Lighthouse reports an SEO issue with these pages: “Links do not have descriptive text” and “Link text is: Click here”.

    The reason for this is that mobile mode displays the following text below the video: “Mobile browser detected, serving low bandwidth video. Click here for full quality.”, where only “Click here” is the actual link text.

    I guess it would be better if the link text was expanded to “Click here for full quality video” which is a lot more descriptive.

    Is there a way for me to change this link text?

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

  • UPDATE.

    I just found out I could manually edit the plugin’s frontend.php file (fv-wordpress-flowplayer/controller/frontend.php), and now Lighthouse does not complain šŸ™‚

    However, I suggest this be modified in a future version as it probably affects a considerable number of installations and SEO score is important.

    I modified line 63 and 64

    ORIGINAL:

    ‘mobile_browser_detected_2’ => __(‘Click here’,’fv-wordpress-flowplayer’),
    ‘mobile_browser_detected_3’ => __(‘for full quality.’,’fv-wordpress-flowplayer’),

    MODIFIED:

    ‘mobile_browser_detected_2’ => __(‘Click here for full quality video’,’fv-wordpress-flowplayer’),
    ‘mobile_browser_detected_3’ => __(‘.’,’fv-wordpress-flowplayer’),
