Nice to have:

  • Show the title that I enter to the media library or inside the post
    and not the Vimeo title.
  • Title editable so that it is shown in Frontend. This title replace video title

Prio 4) Change width and height of video, similarly as I can do with WordPress images.

Proposal based on competition

We have only two solutions:

  1. Continue ARVE
  2. Improve ARVE Migration.

Improving the plugin based on competition is good alternative. We can achieve all of the requirements based on the table.

7) Better Embed Plus

Better Embed Plus use flash, which is not good. It is not working on all computers / mobile devices without flash.

The team will use normal iframe code from youtube.

If they add &start= in the url, they can specify the start time. If they also want to end the video at a specific time, add &end= and the time.

Important: The parameters works in seconds, so the formula is:

2:38 = 2*60+38 = 158 seconds

Specific Start&End Time

Starting playback at a specific timecode

To share a video link that will begin playback at a specific point, all you need to do is add a bit of code to the end of the URL. Just add: #t= followed by the timecode of where you’d like playback to begin.

Here is an example where playback begins one minute and two seconds into the video: https://vimeo.com/81400335#t=1m2s

You can also use this parameter for embedded videos. To do this, simply add #t=(timestamp here) to the end of the player URL in your embed code. For example:

If you’re embedding a video and would like it to automatically start playing, you can add the ?autoplay=1 parameter before #t= as shown in this example:

Note: Unmuted autoplay is not supported in Chrome or Safari (desktop/mobile). If autoplay is blocked a browser or device, the viewer will be required to select play in order to begin playback at the specified timecode. Learn more here.
