Top WordPress Video Plugins Available

By -

there are more and more video plugins in the wordpressphere (?) these days. quite hard to choose the right one for you.

you want it to be easy to operate and not too complicated but also to support a lot of features and include the most video portals in it.

here is a list of the top video plugins available.

All in One Video Pack

Right from the pretentious name you can guess we’re dealing with a huge plugin. a plugin that claims to answer all your video wishes.

to tell you the truth, it is not far from that, it includes every functionality you might need for video and rich-media, including the ability to upload/ record/import videos directly to your post, edit and remix content with an online video editor, enable video responses, manage and track your video content, create playlists and much more…

Another great feature is the video comment. the plugin adds this option to every comment form. just look down here.

the flash control panel of the plugin sometimes too slow, but we can forgive them because of all the rich and many options featured.

watch this video with its original player (not using the YouTube or the Regular Flash Player like most of the plugins) and use the remix or upload functions to check it out.

Embedded Video

very friendly and easy to use plugin. 5 options of settings and one single line of prefix to add in the post and the video is on air. includes most of the big video portals to embed.

first chance

actually you can’t see a video here using this plugin because up to that moment i didn’t succeed embed it.

second chance

i guess it can’t work with other plugins using [].

third chance

but when i use the embed video button here at the editor i use, this is the result:

Sorry, nothing here…

Flash Video Player

Great options for costuming the player and the appearance settings (here is a list of all the options)

very easy to embed

well, the author of the plugin writes: Simplifies the process of adding video to a WordPress blog.

it may be true 3 years ago, but with all the plugins we have today, we usualy don’t need this one with using FLV file we need to prepare.

here is a video example using the Flash Video Player

N-I-C-E !!!

Smart Youtube

you guessed right, from the name of the plugin you can tell, it supports YouTube only. the story here is the same, with so many video plugins, no real use for that one.

using it: really easy, just paste the youtube URL and add the letter V after the http. there are also some costumizing options, like those YouTube suggets.

now let’s see if it works:

wordTube

A very rich plugin, with many layout and playlist options.

you can use your own video or audio file and upload it using the manage tab in the admin area or link to a YouTube video.

also has a counter option to show number of times a video watched by your visitors.

now let’s see if it works:

WordPress Video Plugin

basiclly no options or manage panel tab at all (or maybe i just dodn’t fint it (-: )

just read the readme file attached to the plugin directory,

embed the video is very easy, just open [ write the name of the video portal you want to use and paste the id of the video. then close ].

supportes a lot of portals

OOPS, nothing here… doesn’t work. i guess it can’t work with other plugins using [].

Video Widget

Adds some YouTube/Dailymotion/Google… sidebar videos.

actually the only original plugin for the sidebar, you can use others as well but this one is dedicated for that mission, placing a video on the sidebar is easy.

this is why i can’t show you an example, we’re in a post here and not on the sidebar. you have to believe me.

  1. I prefer to use embed video instead of a plug-in. (I mean directly use the iFrame from youtube. This is ironic that a plug-in is called “embedded video”. Simple and always work on every browser!
