any changelog update?

You can find a list of updates on the changelog at the bottom of the item page. This is where we list any changes in the plugin. We did push a maintenance update last week but it was just updating files in the download not related to the plugin (Documentation, removing unnecessary files, etc.).

If you have any other questions, feel free to post in our support forums. We are happy to help:

Hello There! I need a YouTube Video Player (HTML5) with a custom skin like this:

Is it possible to customize your plugin as well?

Thank you in advance.

The WordPress plugin has a bunch of options under Settings > Progression Player. You can switch skins and adjust the colors of the skins. Also there are other options such as volume default and more.

If you still have any questions, feel free to post in our support forums as we are happy to help:

One last question: Could you show me a screenshot where I can see skin settings? Thanks in advence.

I’m slightly confused by this statement – “Unlimited video & audio players per page (single playlist per page)”. All of the players have to play the same videos? What’s the purpose of that? Can they each play a piece of the same playlist so there isn’t any repetition?

You can have multiple videos per page, multiple audio per page, and multiple playlists per page. You can also have variations of either one like you see in the live preview. I’m not sure what you are referring to as there shouldn’t be any limitations.

Let me know if that helps clarify everything.

I’m sorry. It was a response from 3 years ago. You should really be able to purge those old entries.

Yeah, we add features over time based on customer feedback. This was one of the features we added :-). Unfortunetly we cannot remove old comments. ThemeForest does not remove any content or ratings unless it violates terms of service.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

will it work on Wordpress 4.7?

Yeah, this player works with WordPress 4.7.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I want to buy your player to replace one that I have. but the problem is already have used an embed code. would it be possible to have an embed code like [video file=”Video File Random Name”] ? to define a folder path where videos will be stored, and only use the name of the video file in that embed code? thanks!

If you include a .mp4 file, then it will play on almost any browser. The default fallback is flash and is handled automatically by the player.

If you want to add-in other files types, then you can do so by editing the shortcode or via the WordPress Media Library. Screen-shot of this in WordPress (Just click to add ogv or webm):
Here is the shortcode if you want to use the shortcode instead:
[video mp4="" poster="" preload="none"][/video]

adding the fallback each time for every video, as you showed there, means a lot of work and for me it’s not an option, as I have a lot of videos. it would be nice if your embed will automatically search for other extensions (.ogv, .webm) and use them if needed. that isn’t possible? P.S. not sure why you showed me how to use a poster, I never asked about that.

Yeah, the plugin does not support your specific feature. It instead uses the WordPress Media Library to manage and add videos. You can also use the shortcode if you prefer that method.


I have a presale question from the envanto account. Does this app have continuous playing when navigating to other pages in the same site?

Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you

Unfortunately that is not possible. The player will refresh as you switch between pages on the same site.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello, I’d like to know if you offer the feature of video autoplay in mobile devices

Autoplay is an option for desktop devices. However AutoPlay does not work on iOS devices. This is a limitation of iOS and not the player.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I just purchased and tried to upload with WordPress Plugins upload process and – no – go!!! Poop, I really wanted this to work. I think it is going to be the perfect simple player for my landing page – it ain’t no good to me if I can’t use it. PLEASE – PLEASE help me! Here is the screen shot of the load failure. Please email me at By the way, I just downloaded WordPress brand spanking new to me 3 days ago. Is it possible there is an incompatibility problem with the latest version of WordPress? Why can’t I find ProgressionPlayer in the WordPress plugins area? Andy

Make sure to unzip the initial download from CodeCanyon. You will be able to then find the proper installation files along with documentation. That should easily solve your problem :-)

If you have another questions or need more help, just reach out to use in our support forum. We are happy to help out and have a support forum just for this use:

Thanks guys. This stuff is really new to me and your explanation didn’t really help. I Googled the problem and found a tutorial and was informed clearly that I needed to upload the actual Progressive Player zip file. I am hoping this player does the job. Cheers, Andy

Glad you got everything sorted out. If you have any other questions, feel free to open a support ticket. We are happy to help out:

PPQ: Just purchased your competing Elite-player plug-in and was very disappointed. It didnt even overwrite/ was compatible with default blog-video functionality. And I cannot add categories to automatically play related videos :( BAAAD. How about your plug-in?

Our plugin works exactly as you see in the live preview. It works over the default WordPress Video player. You can choose between skins and sizes. In addition you can adjust some of the colors via the player options panel. Our player does not have categories or related videos.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi there, since the new WordPress version there are problems with the design, it is broken and no longer displayed correctly

Yeah, WordPress 4.9 made some big changes to the player. Thankfully we have been working on this for a few days now and will have an update ready on Monday. It actually will add some features as well :-)

I will update this item comment when we push out this update. If you have any other questions, feel free to open a support ticket. We are happy to help out:

thx, its a super player; i’ve tried many; yours is my favorite; well done!

hello , also i want use some youtube video on the site without showing that they are from youtube ? can you show me an example if it possible with this plugin ?

Sorry but our player does not support YouTube videos. We have support built-in for Audio (.mp3), Video (.mp4, . ogv, .webm ), and playlists as shown in the live preview.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Presale questions: Does this player support multiple playlists in a single instance of the player? I need to be able to manage several playlists with a single player. So, user would select a play list and then select the audio or video from it.

It depends on the tab solution used. As long as the tabs render all the content on the page on page load, then it would work (Most tab solutions do). If the tabs are loaded via ajax then it likely would not work as they player needs to load javascript on page load.

Yes, if you have multiple players per page, they will automatically pause if you click play on another player.

I’m using Avada and I’ve tried several players and none of them stop audio when switching tabs.

Unfortunately it sounds like an issue with the tab solution in Avada. I do not have any personal experience with this but I am guessing our player will work similarly in the tabs.

Is there anywhere that shows a live preview of the video player with the playlist?

We do not have an example of the Video playlist as it matches the audio one. The design looks exactly the same as the audio playlist, just with the video on top instead of the audio player.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

curous why the change from the custom backbone javascript playlist to none at all?

We still have playlist support built-in to the player (For audio & video). I’m not sure I understand your question. You can check out the live preview to see examples of the playlists. Feel free to e-mail us via our profile page contact form if you have code specific questions:

the v1.5 had a lot of javascript that used backbone for playlist, you got rid of it in v1.6 curious if the defaut mediaelement already had that functionality in it

Yeah we made a pretty large update in v1.6 for the playlists. Basic playlist functionality was added to the default player so we switched to using that as the base. We do add some additional functionality though via some custom javascript.

Hello, Looking for a audio player to add in WordPress (plugin) who add a playliste creator for user. I mean, like Youtube, ’’SAVE’’ and create a personnal user playliste!?


Sorry but our player does not allow users to save/create playlists.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, my questions as below:

1. If I embed video from youtube, can I disable youtube link (including Youtube video title, youtube logo & share links) to prevent my visitors from going to youtube site instead of stay within my webpage? I would also like to stop my visitors from sharing the youtube videos, is this possible?

2. Can I embed videos & audios from my Google Drive?

3. Is it possible to disable all the download feature and social media share feature? This is because I want to keep all my videos & audios for exclusive members only. Thus, would like to disable the features mentioned above to prevent them from download or share it to their friends.

4. Is there any file size limits for videos & audios?


1) Sorry but this player does not work with Youtube.

2) Yes, you can embed video and audio from google drive.

3) This players does not have sharing or download options.

4) There are no limits on file sizes for the player.

Let me know if you have any other questions.


To embed videos/audios from my Google Drive vs from my wordpress media files (.mp4), is there any load time difference between these two?

The load time should be about the same.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
