    Hello,

    First and foremost, many thanks for keeping this plugin alive and well, and also many thanks for the recent update.

    When we updated to the newest version, Version 4.6.26, we noticed that on cell phones when you click “play”, the video will not go and enlarge to full screen. It will go full screen if you manually click the tiny icon on the far lower right of the control bar.

    Because we also embed Youtube videos on our site, people are more familiar with Youtube play behavior on cell phones, they are also expecting the video embedded using this plugin to behave like a Youtube video and enlarge full screen when clicking play.

    Is there an “On” / “Off” switch to modify this behavior?

    Best regards,

    Sorry, sometimes I don’t get a notification about these support forum posts. I didn’t make an option for that setting. I’ll do that in a future update. If you can add playsinline="false" to your shortcode that would work in the meantime.

    Hi @kylegilman

    Thanks for the information.

    The thing is that I have been using your plugin for years, and now I have over 900 videos on the site. It will be a daunting task to go to each individual video and insert in the shortcode the playinline to “false”.

    Is there temporary shortcut maybe via a functions.php code that you can provide for the meantime?

    Regards,

    Version 4.6.28, which was released just now, adds a plugin setting to play videos fullscreen by default on iPhones.

    Many thanks!

    hello, first I would really like to congratulate your plugin! It really is excellent! Looking at his doubt, I identified myself, but not being able to make any cell phone click on the full screen, it would rotate to the full full screen of the cell using this local shortcode: playsinline = “false”.am i doing something wrong? I did all possible tests:

    [KGVID]playsinline=”false” https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v [/KGVID]
    [KGVID]https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v playsinline=”false” [/KGVID]
    [KGVID playsinline=”false” ]https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v playsinline=”false”[/KGVID]
    “”” . . . “””
    [KGVID][playsinline=”false”]https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v [/playsinline=”false”][/KGVID]

    every time I changed it I cleared the entire cache, and viewed it both in editor and anonymous mode

    and so on … am i missing something? Thanks!

    I can’t tell if it’s just the WordPress forum formatting or not but all of your quotes are curly/smart quotes, which will cause problems. It needs to be " not Attributes should always be inside the first brackets. The only thing that goes between the brackets is the URL. The correct format is

    [KGVID playsinline="false"]https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v[/KGVID]

    You can also turn off the plugin setting “Play inline on iPhones instead of fullscreen.” which will make sure all of the videos on your site play fullscreen on iPhones.

    Thanks for the quick response .. so it was really the formatting of this site that changed the “. But I copied the same code from the right one to insert in wordpress, even with the correct” “, this shortcode does not work for me, it is the same on the phone, the video does not rotate to full screen, even clearing the caches.

    [KGVID playsinline="false"]https://myvideoexemple.com.m4v[/KGVID]

    Can you post a link to a page on your site that demonstrates the problem?
