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. ) Yes, just set the Video Gallery Fullscreen on the homepage

In what folder does the bulk uploader / multi uploader place uploaded files because I am unable to locate them on my hosting company?s server

In what folder does the bulk uploader / multi uploader place uploaded files because I am unable to locate them on my hosting company?s server

First of all, it is recommeded that you go to Video Gallery > Settings and set Use External wp-content Upload Directory ? to On. This will make files uploaded by the multi uploader go to the {{your wordpress install location}}/wp-content folder. This will ensure that files will remain there even if you delete this plugin.

The default location is wp-content/plugins/dzs-videogallery/admin/upload/ folder

Thanks!

It can play DASH MPEG live streams / streams. It’s better then m3u8 as those are only for apple devices

It can play m3u8 too yes, but it will not work on chrome / firefox / android

I get “No items found?” message from vimeo feed

Maybe too many requests to vimeo ?

Make sure caching is enabled

And also maybe setup an api key in Video Gallery > Settings > Vimeo

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

How to get YouTube API v3 API key ?

1. go to https://console.developers.google.com

2. Follow these steps – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJSkp719HeE

I get “server offline” when trying to autoupdater

You must ask your host provider if your site php is allowed to access the server https://zoomthe.me – place it into the allowed vendors for direct access

In order for autoupdater to work your host server must allow access to updater server

Looks really nice. My client needs to have some registered users only videos, along with videos for everyone to see. Is this possible with your plugin? If so, what is the recommended setup?

Yes, it\’s possible

You need DZS Video Gallery + a membership plugin

Just create multiple playlists and you can set each gallery in a non member / member site

Is there a way to show the video in the lightbox with the youtube settings: play, pause, audio, timeline, full screen, etc ?

You can modify the video player configuration used in the lightbox in Video Gallery > Settings > Video Page > Lightbox options

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.

How to activate big play button / I’d like a play button on the preview image. Is this possible?.

For the video player configuration you are using ( in Video Gallery > Video Player Configs ) , enable Big Play Button

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.

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.

If you have to retrieve a big number of videos from vimeo or youtube. The API might be a little 1-2 seconds slow to respond. But after these are loaded they are cached for 2 hours so there should be no problem. If you need you can increase the caching time in Video Gallery > Settings > Developer ( you can enable developer mode from Video Gallery > Settings > General )

I want to slow down the scroll action ( speed ) on the thumbs

You can either set nav type to scroller

or

go to Plugins > Editor , select DZS Video Gallery, then select vplayer.js

Then on line 275 replace

var duration_viy = 20
with
var duration_viy = 40

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{

Hello can this plugin support Arabic characters play list names? Thanks

Yes, it does

I want the video to fill the container / I don\’t want the black bars top and bottom of the video / Im getting a black bar at the top of the video, none at the bottom.

In the video gallery admin you have an option -> Resize Video Proportionally ( for no black bars )

Also for individual videos -> we have a special property for this called responsive ratio

Find it here

You can just set it to detect for most self-hosted videos, but it might not work for YouTube. For YouTube you must manually calculate this responsive ratio. This is calculated height / width

You need to measure the visible area of the video

and input the result in the field ( ie. 0.5 for 1600×800 measurements )

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

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 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 click on the video it starts to play, very very low quality

In video player configs, select the video player config you are using

Choose YouTube Options, then choose the default quality to HD

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_content s(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

how to make scrolling slower, it is too fast

on video gallery admin > Menu options

enable Enable Easing on Menu

or set nav type to scroller

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.

The iphone screen freezes after playing video

1. Try to reencode your mp4 to be web optimized

2. Or video player configs > edit the configuration you are using , then set Use the Custom Skin on iOS to off

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

Updates

For updating, disable and delete the previous version, and install the new downloaded one. Or just unpack the zip you get from the download and overwrite the previous folder from wp-content/plugins/ via FTP

Or easier, use the Video Gallery > Autoupdater feature

  • ThemeForest authors can use this in their commercial themes with a extended licence

Test it

Front-end – http://zoomthe.me/themeadmin-dzsvg/=
Back-end – http://zoomthe.me/themeadmin-dzsvg/wp-admin/admin.php?page=dzsvg_menu [ user: demouser, password: demouser ] 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.
