Easy Video Embed
Easy Video Embed is a Classipress theme plugin that will allow users to embed videos in their ads.
This plugin requires Classipress theme to be installed.
Why I should use this plugin?
If you would like to enable video embedding in your ads, this is the plugin for you.
When a user is submitting an ad, all he has to do is paste URL link of video to Video URL field. Video will be shown on the ad when opened.
You can select the video position.
These are possible positions for Classipress 3:
- Before Title
- After Title
- Before Content
- After Content
- Before ad
- After ad
These are possible positions for Classipress 4:
- Before Title
- Under comments
- Before Listing ID
- Under Listing ID
A nice feature is also a possibility to select video size. There are predefined video sizes, but you can specify your own width of video. Video height will be calculated automatically.
A user can attach up to 3 video links per ad.
On settings page you can also specify to show a video icon on home page (ad looping page) for ads with video URL. There are 10 icons to choose from.
Also on top of the same page there are two statistical numbers that will show you how many ads have video URL and how many of those are online.
Additionally you can install plugin Video Thumbnails that will automatically add thumbnails to ads, so also ads without images will have thumbnails.
Here are some screenshots to give you a better understanding how this plugin works.
Installation is the same as for all plugins. After you activate the plugin, a new Custom field will be created for you.
For users to be able to insert their videos you have to add this field to all Classipress forms where you would like to have this field.
Then go to plugin’s settings and change whatever settings you like.
Works on all versions of Classipress.
