The shuffle feature isn’t working, do I need to do something else to make it work? everytime I load my page the same video plays and then it plays the rest of the playlist in the same order.
this is what I did:
upon loading the player shows that the shuffle button is selected. so it should be shuffling.
I checked the player in your page and the shuffle feature is indeed working. The display order of the playlist items won’t change when shuffle is enabled but they will be played in a random order as the player auto-progresses through the playlist, which is what is happening in your page.
It’s playing in order from the same start video (the one at the top of the list) each time. I have yet to see it shuffle. The only reason videos have changed is because I’ve added more to the top but they play in sequential order each time. Could you possibly check again?
You had hidden the playlist so I had to make it visible through the browser inspector, but the shuffle feature is still working for me. The first item will always play first and thereafter all the items are selected and played randomly. What browser and OS are you testing this on?
I’ve clicked through all the videos twice and both times they were in sequential order. And yes, sorry, I just hid the playlist. I’m looking at it on Chrome and I’m on MacOs Sierra.
The shuffling works fine in Chrome for Mac too. Are you clicking on the “Next” button in the control bar? That will always select the next item in sequential order. You will see the shuffle feature in action when you let the player auto-progress through the playlist, i.e. let one video finish playing.
I am, thank you for clarifying! I see now that it is shuffling properly.
Also what happens if a video is taken down from Youtube? I’ve noticed that when there’s an issue with one video, the whole player doesn’t work which worries me. In the past I have posted a bunch of videos and for whatever reason, the person decided to take it down (so nothing I did). Do you know if this will affect player? I’m worried that the whole thing will stop working if this happens and then I’ll have to go through the Json file and test each video to see which one is messing it up. I am planning to have hundreds of videos which is why this would be a problem.
If a video is taken down from Youtube then the player will have issues in loading up if you have enabled getID3Info. So to always make the player load up even if a video is missing from Youtube you need to provide all necessary info for all Youtube video items, including thumbnails, in the playlist json, so that the player does not need to query Youtube servers.
Thank you! So, if I don’t have the getID3Info enabled there shouldn’t be a problem?
I don’t expect there to be, but you can try this yourself if you have a link to a defunct Youtube video.
Thanks so much! one of the videos stopped working and it didn’t crash so I think you’re right!
Good to know
UPDATE – if the user removes the video on Youtube, it does break the whole player. Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Luckily I had just added some videos yesterday and was able to find it but I’m worried for the future if someone takes down a video I won’t be able to find out which one it is.
Unfortunately the only way to find out if a video has been removed is to check all your players regularly. At most what I can think of doing is to prevent the missing video from appearing in the playlist.
Would that be by adding code that tells the player to hide broken videos?
Yes, but I am not exactly sure if that will be possible to do. I need a link to a broken Youtube video from you to test this out.

Is there a way to have large song names appear on 2 rows in the playlist?
I have just moved the playlist to the side instead of the bottom and the song title is getting chopped off.
Ah! Sorted just add a "<br />" in the “track” field of the json file.
Though I’m now seeing that it can cause problems with positioning on mobile devices etc. Something to be aware of.
How easy would it be to monetize this app; like adding a buy button to the tracks in the playlist etc?
The player already allows you to show links to purchase pages for each playlist item.
Could you please try to give a little detail in your answer so I can find it – you gave no descriptive answer.
I always search before I ask you. I had searched for buying and selling – got nothing.
Maybe you are frustrated that we ask simple/obvious questions but sometimes we cant find it in the documentation and need your help so it would nice it you could give a descriptive answer that would point to where the answer is.
Forgive the rant I pissed off that I cant find it and have to keep asking more questions when a descriptive answer would save me time.
It may well have been but as I explained before;
I asked you because I never found it and you offer support,
And I hoped for a descriptive answer.
Hi, quick question. I’m trying to play a single youtube video and have it resize to the parent div size, but it never resizes beyond 640×360. Here’s an example:
I am assuming you are trying to increase the width. The player has been set a max-width of 640px in the css. If you need to increase it then you need to write some custom css. The elements you need to target for setting a larger max-width are .vm-stage and .vm-playlist.bottom
thanks for the tip!
It seems the player has stopped working on desktop browsers (Chrome, Firefox).
It does work on phones & tablets.
What is the problem?
You need to upgrade the player to the latest version.
Thank you – but do I have to start over completely with the new version? That is, replace everything on the page?
You need to replace all the plugin files only.
I renewed my support, hoping to get my upgrade working
Just to make sure I understand everything – I installed your demo here http://www.highenergyentertainment.com/vimuse/youtube.html
I have the correct playlist ID and I created an API but it’s not working. Can you take a look and see what I’m doing wrong?
Access Not Configured. YouTube Data API has not been used in project 418413949118 before
or it is disabled. Enable it by visiting https://console.developers.google.com/apis/api/youtube/overview
?project=418413949118 then retry. If you enabled this API recently, wait a few minutes for the action
to propagate to our systems and retry.
OK the API was not enabled. I fixed that and now everything is OK.
I am using the CSS from the old player and it seems to be working OK. Also I don’t believe I need “reset.css” & certainly not “demo.css.”
Does all that sound right?
Right, those are not needed.
Is there a way to have Vimuse remember where a user left off playing their way though a playlist and a specific track so they can easily pickup where they left off?
You can try to use localStorage to store the current playing item index, and then use the player api methods to play a specific item.
I will pay you to make that enhancement for me.

We have tinkered around with the audio/video player (we are using mp3 and mp4 files) to get the image full width and was successful at that, but we are trying to see if it is possible to have a play button generated on audio as well as the play bar to disappear when the user is not hovering on the player? There seems to be one on video on your live testing but we can’t get this to properly work…
This is also for a client, they purchased the player.
Having such a button is not possible without editing the player’s source code. For future queries please ask your client to directly post a comment here, or send me a message through my profile page message box.
I’m working on a phonegap/cordova app. Will this player work inside of a phonegap application that’s packaged for the apple and google stores?
Thank you in advance!
You probably need to disable all features that require php, but other than that I am not sure what you need to do to make the player work in your phonegap app.
Can I get the un-minified versions of:
I have tried using unminifying services online and though they do some parts of the documents quite well there are still large amounts that stretch up to about 10 times the width of the screen.
Thanks for your help.
Why do you need the unminified versions of these files? These are 3rd party files and if you need to customize the player then you need to work with jquery.vimuse.js
Just a general interest in looking deeper at the code.
Thanks for the help, I will try them then.
Is there any option get try version to see if player fits my website? For using on local host only
CodeCanyon does not have any option for providing items for trying before buying.
Are you trying one of the provided demos? If so then you need to provide a Youtube API key if the playlist has Youtube videos.
i purcharshed this item vimuse html 5 player d3373a0f-3cfa-40d5-9069-b442a0f5bc8d – 20 Dec 2016 .
I noticed it does not have any documentation at all .
The code that is downloaded is different than the one you provided as your online demos i have checked and compared.
As a result regular player as e.g Source/regular.html is not working at all the black spinning animation is all i get very annoying.
when i look in the console this is the error
jquery.js:9664XMLHttpRequest cannot load file:///E:/LATEST%20VIMUSE/Source/demo-regular.json. Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https, chrome-extension-resource.
i think the player that we bought is full of jquery errors.
Can you please sought this out i used money to buy your product
i need to use the regular player becuase i am dealing with mp3 from database
please contact me on this email email@example.com i am currently working on the project and i am stuck
There is indeed a documentation provided, check the “readme” folder. And from your description it seems that you are trying to run the player from your local file system, so as has been explained at the beginning of the documentation, it won’t work in Chrome and IE since they don’t support local ajax requests. You need to use Firefox in such a case.
How can I change the background color from Gray to another color?
You need to write custom css to target the player background.
I have a playlist that contains 102 videos in the youtube what is the best practice to retrieve the videos?
The youtube api will only allow to retrieve a maximum of 50 videos at a time.
Your script is really amazing and help me a lot.
I just read a couple of articles and i figure out that we can retrieve more than 50 videos from YouTube playlist.
It will be acceptable to make pagination
The plugin does not support pagination, so you are limited to 50 items max.
I would pay extra money if you can customize it.
I am sorry, but I am not available now to make such modifications to the plugin
Any Plan to add the pagination feature.
I will pay for that if necessary.
1 – 50
51 – 100
Sorry that won’t be possible because it will require a large change to the codebase, and I am not willing or available to make a significant modification to the player code now.
