Super Video Player [vplayer] Shortcode

The Super Video Player shortcode is a comprehensive tool for embedding video players in your WordPress site. It allows customization of video attributes including width, autoplay, mute, and loop. It also supports different video formats and provides an option to add subtitles. The shortcode ensures browser compatibility and delivers a user-friendly video experience.

Shortcode: [vplayer]


Here is a list of all possible vplayer shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • id – Unique identifier for the video player instance

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Display a video player by referencing the ID of the svplayer post type

[vplayer id=1 /]

Advanced examples

Using the shortcode to display a video player by referencing the ID of the svplayer post type. The player will have a width of 500px if the width is not defined in the post meta data. If the video file is not selected, it will display a message to remind you to select a video source.

[vplayer id=2 /]

Another advanced usage of the shortcode is to display a video player with custom styles. This includes setting the width of the player, whether the video should loop, whether the video should be muted, and whether the video should autoplay. If the video file is not selected, it will display a message to remind you to select a video source. If the video file type is m3u8 or mpd, it will load the corresponding script to play the video.

[vplayer id=3 /]

It’s worth mentioning that the shortcode can also handle subtitles. If subtitles are provided in the post meta data, they will be displayed in the video player.

[vplayer id=4 /]
