Video player tests

Here are current contenders for embedding video and for a gallery page. All except Wonderplugin are available as installs.

It would appear that regardless of plugin, embedded Vimeo content only plays in HD from a pro account. Perhaps biting the bullet is inevitable.


Advanced Responsive Video Embedder (in use)

Video player tests

This film has a test of the new (May 17) Vimeo embedding facility incorporated. This brings up a customisable “call to action” and clickable web link at the end of the film.

WP Video Lightbox (deleted)

This embeds video in a page using shortcode

[video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=”115922015″ width=”640″ height=”480″ anchor=”click here to open vimeo video”]

or we can use the Vimeo thumbnail as an anchor

[video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=115922015 width=800 height=450 auto_thumb=”1″]


Huzzaz Video Gallery (deleted)

 Vimeography (in use)

Seems to be pretty nimble at creating galleries – the pro version gives more flexibility. Currently operational at the Gallery page using the built-in basic theme. I’d recommend that we spend $29 on either the the Timber or Greyscale theme (I favour the latter).

Vimeography Error: a Vimeography gallery with an ID of "1" was not found.

 WonderPlugin Grid Gallery (deleted)

WordPress Grid Gallery Plugin

The free version adds a watermark. Paid version is $59 for 6 months of updates.
