FA Video Popup

Description

Very easy to install and use. Once activated, a new icon will be available on the TinyMCE editor to help you construct the shortcode with multiple options:

  • Support for MP4/WEBM/OGG video files, YouTube or Vimeo links in posts or pages
  • Trigger popup via a click on a poster (image), a button or a text
  • Video pauses when popup close
  • Responsive & centered videos

This plugin uses the native WordPress Video Shortcode and MediaElements.js JavaScript library already present in WordPress since 3.6.0.

Why my video is not showing

Make sure the video url is valid and publicly accessible, and that you have defined the popup type and value. For example, if youhave in the shortcode popup=”text”, you MUST declare text=”YOUR TEXT”.

Can I add videos from YouTube/Vimeo with this plugin

Yes. This plugin use the WordPress built-in player.

Why do I get error “Error parsing header X-XSS-Protection: 1” with Chrome

This seems to be a bug with Chrome 807304 but it does not interfere with video playback.

This is not related to the plugin or WordPress Video Shortcode, but to the YouTube API and/or Chrome.
