I like that this extension allows you to fully customize the color schemes etc and allows for video upload but I was a bit disappointed with some of its abilities or the lack thereof.

1. The library view concept is great but there should be no additional steps needed to view a video once you've clicked on it. The user should have been able to view the video in the place of the thumbnail or should have been automatically taken to the viewing screen. Most users will not know they're supposed to click a very inconspicuous button in order to view the video playing in the background.

2. There should have been an option to allow the playlist to be visible automatically on page load.

I purchased this extension yesterday but I won't be using it because it will not serve it's intending purpose which is to have "playlist ready" video module on my homepage. The video library would have been a good substitute but it will do more harm than good being that it's not as simple as click and view. This will do nothing but frustrate users.

I'm a Joomla newbie, installed as documented and everythin just run perfectly. After that I just made a mistake by myself and needed support. The guys there solved the problem within 3 hours. Especially 5 stars for your excellent support!!!

I bought this extension I didn't want to work with the playlist. I wanted separate html5 videos. I was trying to make this work within an article and I couldn't so I wrote to them, but before they've had the chance to answer I was able to figure it out. Turns out that the problem was my own mental deficiency (LOL). The extension works just fine as far as I can tell. Nice player. Good Job!

This product is really good. Better than more expensive videoplayers, actually. I had some difficulties getting this player to work, because of special settings on my client's new site. I posted in their support forum and got an answer a few minutes later. I gave them my login and a couple of hours later they had solved my problems and also made a small feature change in the module.

Awesome support! I registered on this site just to be able to give this extension a five star review. This videoplayer makes exactly what you want with smart solutions for different player themes and playlists.

Huge thanks for your great support! I will buy more from you guys later.

This installed like a breeze... and within minutes I had video working on both my PC browser and on the IPad!

I tried about 4 other plugins.... some would work on web pages but not on Ipad. Others would work on Ipad but not on Browsers...

Easy to install, set up and get video running within a few minutes.

I'm very pleased with this product. I needed a video player to stream videos and group them by day and Spider Video Player is very relevant with it's library feature. Also it works on mobile devices too, which is very important to me.

Spider Video Player is exactly what i was looking for: a player with playlists and library. It's worth the price, even if you are planning to upload your videos to youtube and use only 10% of the functionality. It works on all devices and browsers i tested.
