The best available - improved site performance
By , for WP 4.3.1

I went through all the similar plugins and the only one that is compatible with my complex theme is ARVE. It even works within a tab that is within a column. I have had it installed for months now and I liked it so much that I donated to its development.

I am writing this review since I see some people have bashed it since the developer integrated a paid version.

1. I got the pro version for free using the coupon provided by the developer via a notification within the WordPress dashboard.

2. It took about 10 minutes including settings afterwards. (You register an account at https://nextgenthemes.com to download the pro version. I did it by clicking "MyAccount"->"Lost password"->"Register" [The site is in development...])

3. This is awesome, thanks so much. The plugin improved my website speed a great deal.

Easy to use. No nonsense!

Simply Awesome !!

I've tested at least 10 other plugins from the same genre myself ... this is by far the best I've come across. Simply perfect! Does everything I need it to do and more. This is definitely worth paying for ... Thanx a bunch.

Doesn't work

I use both YouTube and Daily Motion videos. Plug in did not work for either of them.

Stop struggling with video embeds
By , for WP 4.2.2

I struggled trying to make my default video embeds sized and responsive (I always try to do things without plugins whenever possible.) But after I had exhausted all my efforts, I tried this plugin and it just did everything I needed in an instant. Even after I picked it apart and figured out how to create a responsive container myself without the plugin, I still ran into small issues with the default sizing and decided to use the plugin instead. I simply was not able to hack my way to the same elegance that this plug in provides. I hereby concede.

This plugin is great. Totally does what it says.

Simple, does the job, works great!

Great plugin!

Best Player Plugin hands down.
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have tried almost all if not all video player plugins and I found this to be the best. Not to mention, Nico seems to be a cool dude.

Works great and easily implemented.

Use with Visual Composer and SnapTube theme?
By , for WP 4.2.2

The setup format I am using for a new site is the following:

The theme is SnapTube [http://cohhe.com/demo/snaptube/] which natively uses WordPress Video Gallery [https://wordpress.org/plugins/contus-video-gallery/] to load YouTube videos individually into its own custom post type, and then use a widget for Visual Composer from WPBakery, to dislay them.

Most video auto-fetch plugins seem to import video content into the WordPress database directly. However, it looks like Contus uses its own custom database.

The VisualComposer widget can 'see' the WordPress Video Gallery database, where other video downloaders I have tried can see the custom post type but the video downloaders I have tried so far cannot post to the database.

I would like to cut out WordPress Video Gallery altogether and simply have Visual Composer widget display the videos from your WordPress downloads.

Do you think that would be possible?
