Excellant app. Easy to use and it is dependable. Thanks.

This is a paid-only plugin, as in there are no free features. I get that you need to make a living, but have the courtesy to put that in your description so you're not wasting people's time. Immediately uninstalled.

I needed to find a good option for embedding alternative video sites as well as pdf files into my website and this does the job. I'd love for it to have more features and customizations, but for what it does do, it's perfect for now! Great plugin that's simple to use! Thanks!
