Known issues & To-dos


If you are having some issues with the player first check the new FAQs, you’ll find a lot of useful help there.

  • Check if there is an issue with youtube image previews, it appears that the plug-in is adding www in the image URL.
  • The attribute for video in the tag is “FLV” That’s right, in the beginning the player was not supposed to do all the things that it’s doing right now, don’t worry, the “FLV” attribute in the tag it’s ok for video URLs, MP4 files, YouTube URLs etc.
  • The “Tooltip” that appears in the timeline previous version 1.0.0 is missingAnd it will be for some time because I decided to stop coding my own player and use JW Player because has a lot of features already implemented, I’ll code some plug-in to the JW Player in order to have the same functionality, when, I don’t know.
  • This player use to be FLOSS and now uses JW Player. If I receive good donation requesting me to code the player again, I will code a SWF Player with GPL, BSD or Apache license.

To do’s:

  • A file browser for the tag generator that can read into the “uploads” folder to make the process a lot easier.
  • Automatic image thumbnail for YouTube videos.
  • JW Player: RTMP streams are not working, fix it. They are actually working if are standard FLV or MP4
  • Make the video loop. Done
  • Add the “ad code” into de default settings page. Done!
  • Add the “Stretching” option into the player. Done!
  • Use a non-standard upload directory by using get_option(“upload_url_path or and get_option(“upload_path Done!
  • Check the domain comparison in the “warning” message. Fixed.
  • Check the WWW comparison on the plug-in for YouTube Images.
  • JW Player: prevent the buffer flush so users can re-play the video without reloading it. (JW Player developers issue)
  • Use the current post URL instead of the “short” url in the share button. Pending option.
  • A field in the tag generator for custom Flash Vars and another for custom external or internal JW Player plug-ins. Now you can use a custom config.xml file to do so.
  • A playlist field or auto-recognition of playlist in the file field. Done!
  • LightBox. Not in the roadmap.
  • WordPress Mu compatibility. Donde and to be released in version 1.2.0
  • Custom ID for JavaScript interactivity. Not in the roadmap, donation needed!
  • Posible integration with JWPlayerOASIntroduction License your player and use the JW advertisement options.
  • A video view’s counter What you think about this? Use the Google Analitics Plugin already included.
  • A way to prevent domain errors with the use (or not use) of “WWW” on URLs.
  • Server side encoding will be on another plug-in and it’s on development right now. Not in the roadmap.

If you want to contribute you can help with translations, clean up the code or send a donation any time 😀

  1. Hey man,how are you?

    Could you, please, add following jw player plugins such as Gimme and Qualitymonitor to your Stream Video Player , so than they can load from my site.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  2. Hello! Thank you for creating this awesome WordPress plugin. I’ve been searching for a solution for this for some time so forgive me if this question has been answered before:

    I’m trying to use your plugin by way of the do_shortcode(); command in a template file. But instead of producing a video as it should it simply spits out the short code onto the page. Here is my PHP as it is in the template file:

    function make_video($sVideo) {
    $sShortcode="[stream provider=video flv=$sVideo img=$sImageFile mp4=$sVideo embed=false share=false width=$nImageWidth height=$nImageHeight dock=true controlbar=over bandwidth=high autostart=false /]";
    return $the_video;

    Again, all that is returned is the [stream … /] shortcode text. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again!


  3. Hello!

    I am a newbie and having trouble with a quicktime video on my site. I can see it in the preview, but how do I get the movie to start on my page? I don’t want to auto play – I’d like the visitor to the page to be able to click to start the video. Is this possible?

    Thank you!!!

  4. Dear Rodrigo,
    I have a problem with the plugin when playing youtube videos. It always truncate the last 10 seconds of the video. On youtube itself it never happens. I tested in Firefox, IE8 and Chrome. Same problem with every youtube video played through Stream Video Player. You can check it here, for example:
    Or here:
    I use WordPress 3.01.
    Best regards,

  5. Hey! Thank you for great WP plugin. I was wondering if you could add to it generation of video sitemap (sitemap-video.xml)? It would be awesome!

  6. Hola, soy una novata y estoy trabajando con el plugin Video Stream Player para WordPress 3.0.1, el problema que tengo es que cuando subo un video, solamente se escucha el audio pero no se ve, ya he probado con otros formatos pero no se que mas hacer. Le agradecería que aunque sea me encaminaran sobre la solución.

  7. Your plug-in is great. Offers a lot of features. I’m very interesed in the “playlist” feature. You had mentioned that it may be in the next update. Just wondering, when is the next update? And will the playlist feature be included? Thank you.

  8. It is not working if you use a SSL certificate on your website.
    If i try to play a video on my website without SSL it works just fine.

    If i change the wordpress settings for my domain to it will generate an error: ERROR #2035

    Can you please help?
