Perfect player for basic needs and a bit more than that. Optionally, purchase the premium edition to get everything that’s possible. Works smoothly and configuration is a no-brainer. 5 stars.

This plugin is very helpful to realize video play including Youtube easily. It is also good to control video motions with settings.

not a bad plugin, even for free. but they add so many links and advertisements in the wordpress admin for you to buy pro version. Pretty annoying and not worth it.
