Nice idea... poor execution. Danger to your site
By , for WP 4.4.1

We were using this on our site, but it started running really slow. Eventually, the host shut down our site. Here is why:

I have reviewed this issue for you, and it appears that the issue here was that multiple updates were occurring on the table "wp_wsi_splashimage", which is over 220k rows:
+----------------+--------------------+--------+-------------+
| DB | TableName | Rows | SizeInBytes |
+----------------+--------------------+--------+-------------+
| m_wrdp1 | wp_wsi_splashimage | 227533 | 5460904 |
| m_wrdp1 | wp_posts | 2264 | 2664400 |
| m_wrdp1 | wp_3_postmeta | 25389 | 1877460 |
| m_wrdp1 | wp_3_posts | 1642 | 1792356 |
| m_wrdp1 | wp_postmeta | 20503 | 1629812 |
+----------------+--------------------+--------+-------------+

This table being altered while it was being updated was likely the problem. I have removed the restrictions, but to fix this, you may wish to have your developer clean up that splashimage table, so these operations can complete faster, and not overlap.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Even using the Reset button to change the settings to default, this plugin doesn't work. The splash image never shows. Support seems non-existent

Never worked
By , for WP 3.6.1

The configuration page showed without images and after saving the parameters the data where lost if I returned to it.

The splash video never showed up in the main page.
