Great video gallery with "stage" presentation up top. If you can design your site around its format, you're set - but I was hoping to adjust the "stage"/play window size to work with an existing design.
I find this video plugin to be a good one and stable but it lack features like setting a video as a featured video in the gallery in the player window then a cover art,also widgets to put on your front page to showcase some of your videos "featured Videos" also ratings under each video in the gallery so vistors can rate on a video they watch and last a view count along side the ratings.
I just think these addons should be in the "PRO Version" to make it look more Professional.
Huzzaz is really simple to use and does what it says it will do. The reason for my 3 star review is that it (at least seems) to lack some basic functionality that I'd like to see. Here are my issues:
1. You should be able to set one of the videos as the gallery homepage. I don't want to have to upload an image to have that be my gallery "cover." Alternatively, it would be nice if you could just choose "no gallery cover." This is especially important for me when embedding on WordPress.
2. Also related to the gallery cover, there needs to be an option in settings where I can hide my username from the gallery cover page. If I'm trying to embed it on a client's WP Site for a nice, clean look, I clearly don't want to have "stefanpaulgeorgi" flashing on top of the screen. One alternative would be to make a new account for each client whom I use this for, but that's a huge pain in the butt.
3. The third is just the option to hide the "powered by huzzaz portion." I see that this will be an option in the premium player, so hurry up and make it. If you can address the above issues, I'll happily shell out cash for it.
Last note - if there is a way to do any of what I've mentioned above and I just missed it, please let me know!
Everything works great except two things:
Unfortunately, it's a simple iFrame. So there is no SEO for the video galleries you makes.
When you click to watch another video no link is created in the main page. Ideally you would want some sort #video_id so you could return to this specific video on the page you are viewing. Can't do this with iFrames. So yeah.. iframe needs to be ditched.
This could all be fixed if the plugin could dynamically do an ajax query to get data from huzzah. Then this plugin would off the hook!
