I was not able to find any other Video PlayList plugin and so I decided to just try the latest version ( with Joomla 3.0.3 (in which I am building the website).

It is working very smoothly and exactly how required. I ran into a little problem with the playlist part. Only the first video played in the playlist and not others. I configured the player version as 4.7.811 instead of 4.3.132 and the PlayList worked too!

Wow.. JPlayer is easy to install without a fuss! I recommend to everyone who wanted to have audio/video in their website.

Anyway ... it would have been better if youtube can use srt that resides in our website. I hope in the next version this will be implemented. Or is there a work around that this could be accomplished?

Thank you! After downloading 3 plugins, this one worked like a charm! I keep having cross browser issues; the others played great in firefox browser, but not in ie9, or chrome or safari.....and finding this fix for a "know enough to be dangerous code person" was saved me! Bravo!

I had been using another youtube plugin that worked great on my 1.5x site, but it was never updated for joomla 2.5 - 3.0. This worked with 0 configuration, it even uses the same youtube tags, so I don't have to rewrite all my articles. Great job on this, saved me lots of time when cloning & migrating my old site to a new server.

I have been really amazed at the ease of installing, tell the player file location and leave everything else the way JPlayer installed. That is all I needed to do which is as much anyone without Joomla experience would hope.

The player was an answer to many other players and streaming which was complicated and unreliable.

This loads as it plays in FAST START.

Thank you for giving more time to do what I know which doesn't involve developing plugins and coding to make them work.

I've used this extension (plugin) on several of my joomla websites and it works as advertised. It's very simple to use and hasn't been a day of trouble on any of my three sites.

Thank you for making this plugin.

First of all great work thank you!

I am just wondering if the ?wmode=transparent works fine as I am having trouble with the menu hiding behind the youtube video, although transparency was set to "yes".

This is a very nice player, simple and effective.
Only: I want to add different subtitles (translations) to 1 video and this is not possible, you can only add |1 at the end to activate the subtitles.

Is there a way that it can be done?
Owner's reply

No, this is not possible. Player support only 1 subtitle file.

I'm using videoplayist. To every track I put info tags, but it doesn't show that info on my web. I did it like in example. I don't get it what's the problem. Also I discovered that you can put only one annotation tag, it shows only the last one.
