FAQ

Yes,

You go to the Video Gallery Admin, then you have the Importer below. You can import from a YouTube Playlist / User etc. then From a Vimeo user / Channel etc. Then add your own videos.

When i add videos one by one in normal mode what is maximum quantity of videos?
70 is the normal limit per gallery ( remember that you can have unlimited galleries though ) . Normally, you won’t reach the limit for a single gallery, but if really needed this (php) limit can be overcome by increasing max_input_vars in the php.ini or htaccess . So it can have unlimited videos.
Can i set plugin for autostart full screen when i enter the site?
Yes, just set the Video Gallery Fullscreen on the homepage
Hi this plugin is great. But I m getting some jquery conflicts with other plugins. How can I disable your Jquery call and use the one that my theme has?
he other plugins are the fault here because the gallery uses the wordpress one and enqueues it in the correct form ( if it’s already loaded by wp_enqueue_script, it will not load again. )
I can’t for the life of me figure out how the plugin works as a sidebar widget.

Hello

You set the Plugin up in Video Gallery admin panel. Then when you setup the sidebar ( Appearence > Widgets ) – you have the Video Gallery widget.

Where can I define a playlist to show without having to import it every time again and again?
Choose YouTube Playlist – here

Is it possible to create Videogalleries with self hosted Videos, too? I need a function to make different Galleries, because we have membership areas, in the one area we need the playlist 1, in the second playlist 2, eg. For example 30 Videos an we need them in 3 different Galleries on 3 different pages… 1.2. Is it possible to combine Galleries from selfhosted Videos with a few videos from Youtube?.
Yes, it works like that. You can have any type of videos into galleries.
Is it possible to make more than 1 playlists with the videos from youtube or vimeo channel? For example, we have 30 videos and want to pull them in 5 different playlists. Every Playlist will include 6 videos.. ? 2.2 If this works, is it possible to set different playlists to 1 page? That means 5 Players on 1 page, and every player has his own content? 2.3 Is it possible to choose just 1 or 2 Videos from a Youtube-and Vimeochannel?

You either link a gallery to a YouTube playlist. Or you can pull the content of a playlist in a gallery, you can pull different playlist into the same galler.y

You can have as many galleries / players on one page as you wish.

2.3 You can pull the playlist from YT and select which videos you want to keep.

Is it possible to set Thumbnails for the videos, I mean the video that is show in the Player, not in the playlist. In the playlist it´s possible, I read it in your description….

Every thumbnail is customizable.

Currently I host my videos at 2 external video hosting sources, namely smugmug and screencast, may I know is it possible to get my videos hosted at these 2 places to work with your plug-in.
The only supported external video delivery places are youtube, vimeo because they have an API. If you want to embed those videos you need to host them on a site of yours.
I have different galleries and I am changing the IDs on the pages however the same gallery keeps coming up.

The correct form of the shortcode with a gallery id is [videogallery id=”theid”] . As long as the id is the same as in the gallery you are creating in the admin, there should be no problem to have different galleries.

There might be a problem however with WordPress recognizing the id, this might be because you have entered something like [videogallery id=”theid”] insted of [videogallery id=”theid”] - notice the difference between and

Also try without the apostrophes – [videogallery id=theid]

You can also try [videogallery id=theid] – no quotation marks

You just need to create multiple instances via the Settings > DZS Video Gallery admin.

You create for instance to separate galleries – gal1 and gal2. You then add them where you want in your post / page via the [videogallery id=”gal1”] and [videogallery id=”gal2”] shortcodes.

Thank you!
Hi. Im interested in purchasing this plugin. I am wondering if its possible to place the video player/gallery in a page or post rather than on just the main wordpress page?

You can place it on any post or page or custom post type, via an easy to use shortcode.

hi, great plugin..thx:) i use “use any font”plugin, its possible to ad my font to player?? thx 4 your help..

Go to DZS Video Gallery > Setting and in the Extra CSS Field enter

.videogallery, .videogallery .the-title{
font-family: "Your Font Name","Helvetica Neue","Neue Helvetica",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
}
Hello can this plugin support Arabic characters play list names? Thanks
Yes, it does
Hi Great plugin Is there a way to get the pluging to work with Ustream?

Yes, it does

Just set the type of the item to Inline and enter this code in the Source field

<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="http://www.ustream.tv/embed/theidofthevideo?v=3&wmode=direct" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border: 0px none transparent;"></iframe>

and replace theidofthevideo

How many videos can it hold? is there a limit to how many videos I can have on the plater

The number of videos supported by the gallery is virtually unlimited. Just don’t put something like tens of thousands (10,000) of videos or it might work a little slow :P

Please can you tell me, can I put different instances of this player on different pages of my site, so not the same player repeated on other pages

You can set up as many instances of the player / gallery as you want – and set it up on each page through [videogallery id=”theid”] shortcode – works in template pages as well via php code or even as an widget

Hi, regarding your worpress video player plugin, does it support youtube playlists or is it only individual videos

It supports youtube playlists feed, youtube user feed, and individual videos and Vimeo user channel feed

echo do_shortcode('[videogallery id="theid"]');

Thanks!

When I try to edit a slider it forces me to relogin and doesn’t allow me to actually edit the slider, could you help?
Video Gallery > Settings Set Fast binding? to ON
But the video title and descriptions have to be in English. Any non-English character won’t show in the playlist. Could you help me with this issue? Thanks.

I made a video here on how to embed non english characters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TJ7vU8fQ-E

When I try to upload the video files to WordPress’ Media feature, it’s telling me the files are too large. Can’t exceed 8MB. Is there a way around this, so I can get the videos into DZS

Well.. that is the limit your host providers has set for web file uploads. Usually, that is 8MB like in this case and sometimes it’s 32MB ( like on HostGator ). If you have files larger then this limit, you need to copy them on your host via FTP ( preferably on the same domain ) and input the link to it in the field left to the Upload button.

I am searching for a Video Player WordPress Plugin that supports all the browsers, mobiles and tablets. Also, 1. Option of video quality like youtube (auto, 240p,360p,480p,720p,1080p) 2. The video shortcode/embed code will response to screen size automatically? 3.Can you make it work not only as a gallery but and as a single player?

1. You can use the custom player for youtube which allows only SD quality and HD or use the default player for youtube 2. If you enable Responsive option, yes. 3. Definately, if it’s one item, there is no need for a gallery and a player will show up instead.

Can it display multiple playlist from different users ? What will happened after I installed your plugin as existing theme also have gallery ? From backend, you can see all the videos retrieve from playlists ? Can I arrange the videos from playlists into category n pages ?

Yes, but in different galleries.

Probably nothing, but in the extremely unlikely case the theme gallery has the same shortcode [videogallery] it will be overwritten.

No, the playlist ordering is done by YouTube. You just have to set the id of the playlist.

I get this error Warning: file_get_contents(http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/ http://www.youtube.com/user/PrimeKreative/uploads?v=2&alt=jsonc) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request in /home2/primekre/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/dzs-videogallery/videogallery.php on line 186
This error will appear if you are using playlist / user channel feed / vimeo user channel feed and have allow_furl_open disabled on your host, because the server can’t get the API data from YouTube vimeo.. There is no valid reason to have that disabled.

You’ll need to enabled allow_furl_open on your server or ask your host to do it …

More info: http://www.tectite.com/vbforums/showthread.php?842-Allow-Url-Fopen

Is there and Video SEO built into the plugin for YouTube videos?
Yes, the plugin automatically imports titles in descriptions in headings and divs so that it’s visible to search engines.
Also are there a way to have social sharing for the videos?

Yes, puting something like https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u={currurl} in the Facebook Link field generates a facebook button which on click the visitor shares the url the gallery is on.

Designer Center does not work for me.
Make sure you have selected Use Custom Design in the DZS Video Gallery in the Video Gallery you are editing. If your playlist id is in this form PL7FAF7B7187A183D7 it should actually be like this -> 7FAF7B7187A183D7 so without the PL characters at start.
I have entered all the videos addresses from Vimeo via the admin panel however, I’m unable to see the thumbnails on the front end. Please advise.

Hello 1. enable allow_url_fopen in PHP -> http://php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php , http://www.solo-technology.com/blog/2010/04/07/quick-fix-for-url-file-access-is-disabled-issues/

OR

2. input the thumbs manually in the Thumb field, I even made a tool for that -> http://digitalzoomstudio.net/vimeo-thumbnail-generator/

Go to Video Gallery > Settings > Extra CSS and enter
.videogallery.mode-wall .vgwall-item.masonry-brick{
width: 23%!important;
}

and save

Does this work with uploaded .flv, .wmv, .avi and mpg4 files?
  • It works with YouTube, Vimeo videos ( you just need to enter the video id in the admin )
  • It works with .flv files ( h.264 .mp4 / .m4v / .mov are recommended though because iPhone can read only that )
  • It works with .mp3 files
  • It works with images
Will it work with Videos hosted on Amazon s3?
Yes.
Somehow firefox uses flash player ?
On self hosted video, if you do not have a ogg alternative for the mp4, so it will play in flash

For YouTube embeds, the player uses flash either way.

no need to worry.

How do I set subtile for an item ?

You can find subtitle field for each item under the Appearance field

What do you get?

  • video gallery WordPress plugin – get creative!
  • LIFETIME updates! – We are constantly updating and adding features to our components to keep the latest standards and trends. You will get all these updates for free even if the price of the gallery increases.
  • free support! – for installation via my forum -> http://digitalzoomstudio.net/support/ this is the fastest form of support
  • documentation – extensive documentation on how to install & configure the plugin

Notes

  • iPads and iPhones cannot have a custom skinned player. Their OS does not allow other player other then their owns, which by the way looks very good ( you can see the demo here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puj20NRu5VM ) but if you change the skin in the gallery it won’t go beyond the default one for iOS
  • Gallery Designer Center is offered as a bonus and may not work on some servers – no support is offered for this at the moment
  • YouTube API allows a maximum of 50 videos retrieved from a playlist at a time
  • ThemeForest authors can use this in their commercial themes with a extended licence

Test it

Front-end – http://thezoomer.net/theme1/?page_id=30
Back-end – http://thezoomer.net/theme1/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=zs1_menu [ user: test, password: test ] The database resets every half an hour to preserve the original options for new visitors.

Notes

  • You need PHP 5.2 + on your server in order for the widget to work ( if WordPress 3.2 or later works, the plugin will work too, no need to worry)
  • The designer center is only for video and youtube type. Vimeo type cannot be skinned as too Vimeo terms, but their skin is already slick enough. The menu will still be skinned, just not the vimeo player.
  • If you feeding from YouTube user channel or Vimeo user channel – the videos are arranged as YouTube / Vimeo publish them. You cannot arrange them manually – you will need to add them manually if you want that.
