Excelente plugin para insertar videos. Llevo usándolo más de dos años y tanto si se utiliza como widget en sidebar como para insertar en los posts es muy efectivo. Tiene una interfaz sencilla y hace bien su trabajo. Muy útil.

Best player! Supported and it actually works
By , for WP 4.5.2

Been using this player for years and the support has always been there. Although I have only had 1 issue (my fault), the help has been there and the plugin stays up to date.

The video payer works well with any device we have tested it on and our members love it.

THANKS for the great plugin!

A usefull video gallery plugin
By , for WP 3.8

Hi ,

After uninstalling 3 or 4 other top listed video plugins which i got after search , this one did my job with an easy and effective interface.

Thanks for the creator.

5 Stars Really!
Good work!

Very good plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a very good plugin. Especially the idea of taking automatically the video and thumbnail from youtube is great!

I would like to see it working with colorbox and embed youtube code in the future, so as to avoid middle players.
