Dessky Video Plugin

Dessky Video Plugin

Dessky Video Plugin is based on the famous Flowplayer HTML5 video player.

It allows you to embed video in your post or page using HTML5 with Flash fallback support for non-HTML5 browsers.

Settings can be fast configured with a control panel and videos are added easily via simple shortcode.

Video files can be served from a secured private directory.

Youtube or Vimeo video may be used both as a fallback mechanism or as primary videos, with HTML5 videos acting as fallbacks should the embed videos fail to play.


Upload the ‘dessky-video-plugin’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Make sure your webserver is configured so that ‘video/ogg’ and ‘video/webm’ are recognized file types and that the server transmits them with the correct Content-Type. Depending on your server you might have to extend the .htaccess or mime.types files (Apache), use the IIS manager (Internet Information Server) or set the header via Metadata (Amazon S3).

Example .htaccess file:

AddType video/mp4 .mp4
AddType video/webm .webm
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType application/x-mpegurl .m3u8

Use the shortcode in your post or page.
