Sticky Spotlight Video Player

Description

Sticky Spotlight Video Player is a WordPress Plugin that allows you to use videos from around the web and insert them on any page, post, or landing page and, as the user scrolls the page, the video will float to the bottom-right or bottom-left. Additionally you can attach call to actions to the video container and link to anything (including your affiliate links).

Product Demo:

How to Use:

Step 1

With our Viideo Player plugin you can use video links from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, and Self-Hosted MP4s as your video source. Once you have the link for the video you want to use simply paste it into Step 1.

Step 2

Now that you have added your video, you’ll see a preview of the video to the right hand side of your screen. You can confirm that the video is the correct one.

Step 3

You’ll want to add your marketing message next, this includes a headline and paragraph text that will show below your video as the user scrolls down the page.

Step 4

Now that you have informed your user of the action you want them to take, link them to a page on your website or a page from around the net.

Step 5

Name your shortcode for easy identification and paste it anywhere on your post, page, or sidebar.

Key Features:

This plugin offers much more than just embedding videos from your favorite video sharing sites. It offers really cool features for video marketers. Following are some features that proves this plugin is different from other plugins available:

  • Your video will float along the left or right side of the browser window as the reader scrolls the content, so both the video and your marketing message stays in focus.

  • With our exclusive call to action box added to the bottom of the video container, you can keep your offer in front of visitors as they read through your entire site. Once they are hooked, the call to action is right there to help them convert.

  • We know it’s important to keep a great user experience on your site, so we also allow users to minimize or close the floating video.

Purchased the plugin and received a download link. But didn´t receive a licence or a login to the app url. Tried to send them an email but it didn´t work. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: [ Deleted ] Unfortunately i read to late the ratings and it seems to be scam. So don´t purchase this plugin. There is another one on envato market.

I purchased it and did not received the email back with all my details to use the plugin. I thought it must have been a technical problem so I emailed them without success. All my email come back to me because they email address is not real. I texted them on Facebook and after days they texted me back pretending they were helping me. After a week or so I was still not able to use the service I had paid for. I called them and they (David) invited me to contact them only by Facebook on which I had already left many messages. Finally, since I was in the right to ask it, I asked them to be refunded. Well, from this point, they are completely disappeared. From the reviews, I saw that I have not been the only one. So be careful because you can be the next one!

I always wonder if there is some kinda plugin which help me to float my videos like Facebook & YouTube do while scrolling down the page. When I figured out Sticky Spotlight Video Player this made my life easy. I loved the interface how it takes you through every step, The other thing I loved about this plugin is it's loaded with tons of cool features so you can customize it how ever you want. Worked perfectly. Its simply awesome.
