Not responsive

Posted on 20 December 2013

Working well on pc or on mobile, but it isnt responsive.. so, it isnt usuable for mobile devices because lack of responsiveness.

Simple and it WORKS!

We have been searching for a simple plugin that will work flawlessly - this is the ONE. Ability to link so many video streams through this plugin is amazing! We did not expect that even though it is a free extension, to have a copyright removal option in plugin settings. Developer needs to add donate on their site, so we feel good about removing credits (!).

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for J2.5 and J3.0!!!

Not responsive

Posted on 25 October 2013

The plug-in seems to work fine but not at all for people who are using Joomla 3 for it's responsive design. As flash does not work on iOS devices...

For example, Youku has a special iframe link to display the video on a iOS device...

Working just fine!

Just copy&paste youtube's embed link to article and it's done! Good job, thanks!

the simplest, best and easiest plugin i ever used. loving it. great work man. really appreciate this.

i am really loving it. now a kid of kindergarten can upload video with this in any site.. :D

Works Great

Posted on 25 April 2013

Worked great for me with no issues, had tried several other plugins that were not working well with my RocketTheme template. For those who said you can't change the alignment, you actually can. What you do is align the video link the way you would align text.

The name of the plugin is right, is very easy to insert a video.

Unfortunaly there are a lot of issues:

- The plugin worked fine, but when I update the internet explorer to fix a vulnerability error the plugin simple doesn't work anymore. I do not reccomend now, until further correction, and add to this the text below:

-Some erros below is a copy from another user in this same page:

- youtube fullscreen doesn't works

- frontpage size is not applied

- using JCE editor sometimes the video is displayed twice (for fixes this need to unlink the link, put only as text, Note of actually commentator)

- in MSIE8 some youtube links are not displayed

Extremely Simple

Probably the easiest plugin I have ever used for embeding media in articles.

My only little tweak - it would be nice to be able to center/left/right align the videos as well as set their size

Works Very Well!

I had no problems installing and using this plugin to embed Youtube Videos into my articles. I use the JCE editor and I'm glad you fixed the double video issue on the front-end. However, another problem I have now is that the video cuts/blocks off part of the text in the post. I found that the cause of this is when I paste the Youtube link into the editor it automatically formats it as a link. If I remove the formatting and have the url as just plain text, then the problem of the text being cut off is fixed. It would be great if you could fix this problem in the next update. Thanks for this great plugin!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. It really important to us. We already works on the solution, but if you can provide additional information on your text cut-off blocks to solve the issues, it would be great.

Lot of problems
