The HTML output for this plugin is very sloppy. If you're a theme developer, this is a nightmare to style: the author(s) switched between hyphen, underscore & camelCase classes for no reason. It also relies on outdated mysql calls instead of staying up-to-date with WP database functions - these warnings appear in Debug Mode. If you never touch code & this works for you, swell. But developers beware.
This plugin is nice UNLESS YOU HAVE iOS customers - the only format that it supports on iOS is mp4 in h265 encoding. I did not find this out until after I paid them and their support just said "we only support his format" when their description clearly states otherwise. It lists all kinds of different formats that it supports and specifically states that their player works on iOS. SO NOT TRUE!!!
If you have multiple formats of videos then this is NOT the solution for you (or me). Looking to find another now - while I try and get a refund since they didn't even offer a work around...
The plugin by itself is okay.
But the installation with different addresses of the installation of WordPress and the website as described in the Codex does not work (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory). I asked several times for support but the answer was, that this is a WordPress issue...
It's possible to change some code so that the plugin works. But the price for a buggy script that you have to fix by yourself is much too high. And the free version has an anoying watermark.
I have used this plugin for several months now, and am still struggling to get a website done because of it, and it alone.
While their support is generally decent/responsive, they are an Indian team and struggle to understand or communicate with you, in English, in any sort of advanced fashion - be warned.
The plugin has a ton of potential and looks very nice, with a "YouTube" type of experience added right into WordPress.
Unfortunately I am on my FIFTH support ticket already and it is always something wrong with the plugin itself, just a lot of sloppy coding, poorly executed ideas, limited customization and organizing, poor testing, and a TON OF BUGS that will drain you and make working with it completely unenjoyable. I am simply exhausted with the entire experience. Furthermore the support team will ask for FTP and WordPress Admin access to your site EVERY TIME. (it's so bad they have to go into the plugin code and make on-the-fly fixes to the plugin, just awful, it can't be that hard to get something as simple as this ultimately, up and running properly on major browsers and in WP).
I regret my purchase at this point, and as an experienced Web Developer, would highly recommend avoiding it altogether.
It is too bad this thing takes forever to load (whether referencing a video file you are hosting or linking a YouTube video)...the concept is nice, but it is slow as balls to load...People simply will not wait for a click to load more than a few seconds. This takes a really long time to load unfortunately.
