Therefore, it is recommended to build up your website with more pictures and videos in order to reach more audiences. Understanding the demand, Duncan MacGibbon has created the WP Video Press, the ultimate plug-in in WordPress which help you to deal with videos on your website.
Unlike other video plug-ins on the market, WP Video Press contains unique features that helps you to build a eye-catching website. As a result, you will have more traffic, more audience and earn more money. Moreover, it work wells with all WordPress themes, so your choice is limitless.
2. WP Video Press Interface and Features
After installation, WP Video Press will appears on your dashboard. The plug-in has an intuitive interface and you will get used to it very quick. Please take a look in the following video to have an overview of it.
2.1 Auto Full Screen
The first one is Auto Full Screen. This feature helps you to set the video in full screen mode for a specific period of time when it is playing. For example (see below): first, you choose the Full Screen Video mode in Video Feature, then you can set the starting time at 5 second and the ending at 15 second. After the video plays for 5 second, it will be automatically set to full mode and then minimizes again after 15 second.
Here is the demo video for this feature:
2.2 Resize Video with Contents and Lock Content in Shortcode
The next two powerful features are Resize Video with Contents and Lock Content in Shortcode. With this feature, the contents you want to show readers (e.g. post, advertising, affiliate link, etc.) will appear at a chosen period when the video is playing. Particularly, it work wells with all HTML code and you can freely chose where to put your content (top, bottom, left or right with Resize Video with Contents) as well as the starting and ending times.

This feature works like Facebook Video or Picture-in-Picture mode on iPad; and that makes you website very professional.

There are 2 points that this plug-in is missing compared to other competitors (e.g. Workbox Video, WordPress Video Gallery)
♦ Only support YouTube platform (support for other platforms such as Vimeo, Dailymotion will be available in 2nd version in 2018)
