New Plugin: Video Player

Video Player by Dukt allows you to easily get the embed code for any one of many hosted video services. All you need to do is pass the plugin the URL to the video and it will do the rest.

{exp:videoplayer:details src=""}

The plugin supports Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Veoh, MySpace, Metacafe and Revver. It is available for both EE 1.6 and EE 2 and is currently a free download.

Hi Ryan and thanks for this nice post about our Video Player plugin !

As a side note, if you just need the embed code you can also use the plugin this way :

{exp:videoplayer src=“”}

And by the way, your favorite video rocks !
