How do I make use of the extended attributes?

Add a self-hosted video to your WordPress post or page using the WordPress editor, either manually or using the “Add Media” button. Switch to Text mode and edit the shortcode to include the playsinline=”1″ attribute. For autoplay videos, add muted=”1″ (iPhone will only auto play videos if they are muted). The plugin will then add the correct attributes to your post or page.
