Its ok but lacks features
By , for WP 3.9.1

I just downloaded this to use on a client site to add vimeo pretty photo links.

There is on tinyMCE button to generate the code for you , so my client will constantly need to reference the documentation or go back to previous posts and copy the code from there. Obviously this is less than ideal.

Another issue I've noticed is in Chrome the overlay doesn't appear sometimes. It will appear when you re-size the browser window tho. This is a known chrome bug, but has been resolved on pretty photo's side so it should be resolved within this plugin.

Hopefully an update will resolve these issues in future.

Works great but window is way too small for mobile screens.

Works perfectly fine for my You Tube videos on larger screens but on mobile the pop up window is just too small (too much space around the window) and there are no settings to change this.
