Sticky Video plugin allows you to watch videos continuously while scrolling through a page or a post. Boost viewability rates for your videos just like they have done in CNN, Daily Mail and Washington Post.
How does it work?
When a user plays the video and starts to scroll through a page or a post, the video player will pinned from the primary position to the position of the reader’s screen set by you. So the video remains viewable even while scrolling to a different part of the webpage.
What type of videos does it work with?
This plugin supports any video that are hosted in;
- WordPress (Self hosted in Media Library)
- JW platform
Can I customise it?
Of course you can! Under plugin ‘Settings’ you can customise the options below.
Width of the player.
Positioning of the player
Pin the player to;
- Top: Left
- Top: Right
- Bottom: Left
- Bottom: Right
Set vertical and horizontal offset.
If your theme has a sticky header, this option will help you to setup the video player position, so it does not overlap.
Enable/Disable stickiness on mobiles.
Customizable mobile breakpoint.
You can define the width of the screen to disable the Sticky Video. Eg: By adding 768px, it will disable the plugin when the screen width is 768px or below.
Enable/Disable stickiness on paused videos.
When this option is set to ‘True’, the sticky functionality will only apply if the video is playing. *Please note: This feature only works with HTML5 videos and embedded videos from the WP Media Library. It is not available for YouTube or Vimeo videos.
