Working For Me
By , for WP 3.9.2

I am a novice, but I followed the instructions on the video and it is streaming just fine for me. With the exception of the excerpt/content issue if I click on the actual post, then I get the (video). Came here for guidance on how to fix it per Plug-in FAQs.

I only see “(video)” on my blog, why?

With some WordPress themes when you are browsing your blog, doing a search or any other thing that shows multiple post on one page you may see only the word “(video)” instead of the actual video BUT in a single page with a single post you can see your video, the reason to this behavior is to prevent some XHTML issues because the theme you are using is running the function “the_excerpt()” instead of “the_content()”, the “the_excerpt()” function cut a post in a small pice of text and because this plug-in generate XHTML code it could lead to a disaster in terms of code when a XHTML tag is not closed, a solution could be to use other plug-in that replaces the “the_excerpt()” function or to change your theme code to run “the_content()” instead of the “the_excerpt()” combined with the use the “<!–more–>” comment tag in your content.

Looks like this is no longer being developed

A real shame. This used to be a good player but it isn't fully compatible with recent versions of WP. Some of the videos on my site are broken now and I can't use it to embed Youtube. So I guess the best thing to do is find a replacement player, then go through my whole site and replace every single video. Bummer.

Can't add Media from Library? Nothing pop up?
By , for WP 3.8.1

Nothing is coming up but a Gray Screen while clicking on the "Media Library" button. Then nothing can't be done at all.

Is it a known bug, please? But anyway its a serious bug. Please help to check asap :(

Used to work - but not now
By ,

I had been using SVP since 2010 no problem. Since then I updated WP to 3.7.1 and SVP to 1.4.0. Now I get nothing but a gray screen when clicking on anything from the media library within the SVP dialog box.

Other folks have noted this same problem - no response (that I can see) from the author.

Unsafe Download Found
By ,

To download the player is a big mistake! I downloaded it and my antivirus program removed it. Said it was an unsafe download. Imagine that from wordpress.
