First of all, awesome plug in. I wanted a way to self-host video (no youtube or vimeo) and this is perfect. As advertised: COOL VIDEO GALLERY. Kudos.
I did come against the file size issue. I have some large video files (200+MB) but it was very easy to locate the gallery folder and upload the files manually with FTP. The “Scan Galley Folder” button works like a charm.
Two humble suggestions:
1. About thumbnail photos: I wonder why it is required to use “png” format. I can achieve a better quality image at a fraction of the file size with a “jpg” optimized for web.
2. It would be even cooler if the gallery could also have pages (i.e. if I have 24 videos in one gallery, I could set it to have ten show at a time and then there would be a navigation for additional pages at the bottom of the gallery.) This feature exists in the admin panel where I can set how many videos are listed and the nav is in the upper right. My thought is that this same function could exist for the actual gallery as it appears to the public.
These suggestions aside, I want to thank you for providing this valuable functionality. Much appreciated. 5 stars (already logged.)
