v. 2.9.4



Also available as WordPress® component.

You can find the WordPress plugin here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmbytplayer/ The WordPress component is internationalized and it’s available in English, Italian and Spanish (thanks to Andrew Kurtis http://www.webhostinghub.com). below a short tutorial on how to install and configure it on your WordPress site.


What’s new in 2.9.4:

  • Bug fix: The loop on webkit browsers randomly failed.
  • Feature: The video now stops just 1.5 seconds from the end (it was 3 sec.).

What’s new in 2.9.1:

  • Bug fix: if “showControls” was set to false there were errors due to a missed condition in the code.

What’s new in 2.9.0:

  • !Important fix: As Youtube API 2.0 has been removed the component moved to the API v.3; now if you want to get the video information (title, description, etc.) you need a Google API key that should be passed to the component as option. See the doc for more informations.
  • Improved the control that check if the video is ready to play.

 What’s new in 2.8.5:

  • Feature: Added the ability to apply CSS filters to the video.
  • Feature: Added the volume slider on the control bar.

What’s new in 2.8.0:

  • Feature: Reintroduced the “optimizeDisplay” option (default is true). If set to false the video will be played without any crop.

What’s new in 2.7.9:

  • Bug fix: When the player was instanced inside an iframe cross domain it was throwing an error.

    I am building a playlist gallery with thumbnails. The gallery should start playing all videos in order, but if a thumb is clicked, then the video changes (with $.fn.YTPChangeMovie(opt)). Now is there a way to reset the counter for the playlist to this clicked video? That would make sense to me.

    Thank you for the great plugin.

    I am trying to unzip your file and it is coming up empty. Secondly It does not default to Archive Utility on Mac which is a tell tale sign of something wrong. Please check the current download file

    Great plugin, thank you!

    Randomly I experience a problem with the video not starting properly. After the page is loaded, the css background is visible but the video doesn’t start. This only happens in Firefox and after several page reloads the video starts to play as it used to.

    Any ideas what could be wrong? Could this happen because of http://pupunzi.open-lab.com/2014/11/09/firefox-and-the-youtube-video-quality-issue/
