v. 2.7.2


What’s new in 2.7.2:

  • Bug fix: Fixed a conflict with the Bootstrap framework.
  • Bug fix: Something is changed in the Youtube API that was preventing the auto-play of the video; now the “can play state” is more accurate and should speed up the start of the video.

What’s new in 2.7.0:

  • Bug fix – fixed a bug that was preventing the volume to be set correctly.

Available also 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.

    Is there anyway to speed up the load time for the video? It takes about 6 seconds to load and then it fades in. Can the video load as soon as the user enters the site. Seems like there is a delay.
