I get that there has to be pro features, but when you restrict the entire plugin to only be able to use internal files in order to sell more I will not use it and I will not give good reviews. To be perfectly clear, you cannot host videos from external sites which is a basic feature of any website. This forces you to spend gigabytes and gigabytes on your limited hosted service. No thanks!

Hi there Autoplay is not working on many devices. I have checked all the conditions for each browser and tested other plugins which DO autoplay. In all honesty, I could have just used one of those plugins but I preferred the styling of yours - however that's pointless if it wont autoplay which will require a refund. Is there the ability to manually add parameters to videos like so: playsinline autoplay mute current="0" speed="0" I paid for the pro version but when I log into my account, none of my purchases show to raise a ticket. Thanks

The freemium version lets you configure a YouTube video, but won't actually play it. I didn't test Vimeo, so I'm not sure what the status is for that platform. If it's not supported, then the plugin should at least block configuring YouTube. Contacted vendor in the support forum (multiple requests) to confirm support for YouTube in the freemium version. They declined to state the support status in the freemium version (but they did say that it's supported in the pro version). I don't think it should be so difficult to get a clear answer on support for a major platform.

I took the plunge and went for the pro version because I wanted the features that were not included in the free version, notably AMS-S3 hosting for my videos. I have rated the pro version of this plugin as 4 STAR only because it did not work when installed. Credit must be given to the developers for the support they gave in fixing the issue. It now works flawlessly. It is a shame it did not work that way when it was installed. If you really need a third party plugin for your videos, you shouldn't go wrong with this plugin.

Thanks, Raju, for patiently trying to help me by changing something in the plugin and updating it. I tried to email you that the shifting I described is no longer happening but the email wasn't delivered to you. I received an email in which was said it was "550-JunkMail rejected". Though the flash remains for the portrait filmed videos, to me this plugin is still a great plugin. I've not had any other problem using it. I so like that it's simple and easy to use. Thank you for creating and maintaining it! May all go well for you. Sherry
