constant "ID not set" error
By , for WP 4.5.3

Keep getting "ID not set" error, clearly set the ID in the shortcode, is being passed directly to do_shortcode, just wasted 30 minutes trying to get this to work

Not working on WP 4.4.1
By , for WP 4.4.1

Every video broken and only error msgs show up after uploading to WP 4.4.1.

ARVE Error: Mode: is invalid or not supported. Note that you will need the Pro Addon for lazyload modes.

(I don't use any mode.

No Support
By ,

The developer does not reply to support requests for the free or paid "Pro" version.

autoplays regardless of setting
By , for WP 4.3.1

autoplay="no" doesn't work.

Author rudely states he has stated several times it does not work? I went through first 10 pages of forum and saw nothing.

Switching immediately.

From hero to zero

Suddendly free features of plugin removed and you forced to buy premium add-ons. Site broken no videos just crappy error message.

I somehow managed to find older version of this plugin laying around, since it's published under GPL license you can download and use it as pleased from here:


PSS: Bump the version to avoid update notifications.

Shady practices
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.2.3

Actually you are wrong, I displayed a message to users about this update coming, that it will be mandatory ...

Also I guide people to the old version and on top of that I even give the Pro Addon out for FREE to legacy users!.

You however:

Now that the developer has taken that option away unless you pay for the plugin
make it sound like people have to pay. The truth is I actually saw things like this happening on other plugins and carefully tryed to aviod people think I have done this. But I cant account for morons who are to lazy to read.

But of course some hater who is to stupid to read comes along and makes false claims. I actually expected this and expect more of your kind come along. I am so sorry for not want to live from state money and actually get payed for my work. I know I am so evil for taking money. So sorry for having a extremely long beta period where I invited people to test and planned this release carefully ... oh fuck off!

Very annoying banner
By , for WP 4.2.2

While testing the plug-in in my freetime (and I have not much freetime) there comes a banner with the message that I need to donate. If I use plugins for WP I will buy them or pay for a donationn. What's irritating me, is the way of contacting me after a few days testing. Also if you click tyhe "Ignore", there is a modification of the admin.php by adding code after admin.php

This is a very low way of trying to get a donation. Getting a white screen after clicking "Ignore" This plugin and his developer(s) are blacklisted.

Great plugin, just get rid of the popups
By , for WP 3.8.1

Liked the plugin until you implemented beg-popups for donations. I understand you want to monetize your plugin. Fair enough, just don't do it with popups that appear outside of the plugin admin. I do NOT want to see your popup on other screens/panels. It interferes with the settings. Also, your popup is NOT responsive and there is no way to close it when it rudely appears on a mobile device.
