Quick Description

You can use this plugin to spice up your blog, community, professional website or store with video posts. Want to share a video of yourself? Simply start by creating a new post, click on the Record Video button and take a video of yourself or your screen. It will then be shown to your audience once your post goes live.

You can also invite people to leave video comments. Folks will have the option to either leave a traditional text comment or take a short video of themselves. These comments might be viewable by everybody on your site, or not, depending on your own setup.

The plugin is based on the powerful Ziggeo API. While it is easy to add by yourself, this plugin adds it for you. All that you are left to do is to click around and set it all up (very simple and quite quick).

Why Ziggeo?

Ziggeo video playback and recording is built upon its own framework. It allows you to record and play videos on various platforms out of the box. Stop thinking about the video type specific to browsers or technology available on specific platform. Ziggeo API is unifying the design of your video player and recorder and makes all processes just flow.

Ziggeo is designed to do that using same calls and methods while our backend works out all of the specifics for you. And plugin? Well, plugin just packs the power of Ziggeo and allows you to have the same on your WordPress website in just few clicks, regardless if you are looking for Video Recorder, Screen Recorder, Video Player or Video Gallery. Since version 3.0 it also offers the Audio Recording and Audio Playback capabilities.

Audio Recorder

Like video recorder, Ziggeo core plugin now has the Audio Recorder. This makes it very easy for you to add various audio recorders around your website. Let your customers leave you audio messages if your support is offline. Use for quick message in your forum, or in many other ways you might need it.

To add to your pages you would use shortcode that is as simple as [ziggeoaudiorecorder]

Audio Player

After recording or uploading audio the best thing you can do is to showcases it. With the shortcode [ziggeoaudioplayer] you can start adding the audio player into your admin or into the sections of your website for everyone to see.

It comes in with all the themes that are available for the video player, with the cool red-bars visual effects when the audio is being played back.

Templates

Ziggeo plugin is powered by templates. This means that next to using our codes as you would usually use, you can also use shortcode. This allows you to quickly set up the template in the “template builder” part of the plugin.

Once you do, you simply reference the template from your posts, pages and comments. There is no limit in the amount of templates you can have and it is up to you how you will use them.

You can see how the templates work and about the template editor.

Video List

Moderate your videos through your WordPress dashboard. The Video List page now allows you to see different types of videos right in in your WordPress website. With the quick possibility of approving and rejecting them you can quickly and from within WordPress fulfill your workflows.

You will see new counter shown when a video is recorded on your WordPress page, to help you notice any new videos.

Options include:
1. Video Moderation (Approve or Reject)
2. Get Link option to get different versions of public links to your video
3. Removing Videos
4. Seeing and editing the custom data (JSON)
5. Retrieving the various shortcode options for video
6. Seeing and changing the Title, Description or Tags for each video
7. Downloading any stream of the video using the new download shortcode feature ([ziggeodownloads {video_token}])

Notifications

Notifications page has been created. It provides you with a way to get notified about different errors or good pointers that can happen with your WordPress website. This makes it easy for you to find out if some page needs to be updated for some reason, or if there is some other info that can help you.

With version 3.0 it also gives you information if the page is trying to show a template that no longer exists. With the info you can quickly see and make sure a new template is created.

Bridges to new places

Ever since v1.15 we wanted to allow you to bring Ziggeo to any place of your website. With the v2.0 this is possible even further.

We have made a lot of hooks available for you to use them and change what and how happens. It also allows you to extend the functionality further.

Now we wanted to bring you few examples next to this, so we created several bridges that combine our plugin with other plugins you have asked for. They are available as additional plugins that you install.

Originally you would have all of them and could enable/disable them through our plugin. Now you only grab the ones of interest to you. Plus they offer a great source of examples how you can bring Ziggeo to any other plugin of your choice.

FAQ

How to add embedding to only some people when using WordPress Groups plugin?

WordPress Groups plugin has the feature you are after. Wanna hear some more good news? Our plugin works with theirs as well 😉

You would be able to do that either by using:

[groups_member group="YourLimitedGroup"]
 [ziggeorecorder theme='modern']
[/groups_member]

or by using

[groups_non_member group="YourLimitedGroup"]
 [ziggeorecorder theme='modern']
[/groups_non_member]



 [ziggeorecorder theme='modern']
  • This can be any code you want to use.

What way should we use to embed Ziggeo embedding?

Do you happen to have hundreds of posts with Ziggeo embeddings? Want to use same one for all of them? The best way would be to use templates. You then have a single place to edit the templates.

Are you using some specific plugin that provides you with some extras (like widgets) where you want to add the code, yet template is not working there? Well some widgets do not use / provide ways to process things in them, so our JS and HTML code will work.

What happens when you delete the template?

Well, the template will no longer be found and used, however the defaults that you have set under your General tab are what we will use to show your videos / recorder instead.

What happens if we delete all templates and did not have any defaults set?

Even if unlikely to happen, we thought about that and are always using our own defaults in case we can not find anything else.

This is the load process:
1. Our defaults
2. + our WP plugin defaults
3. + your defaults
4. + your template code

How are templates stored?

They are stored in a DB. Prior to v3.0 it was possible to choose if you want them to be stored in files instead. With v3.0 we are using the best approach where they are stored in the DB, however then saved into a file. On page load we read and process the file to show your template.

Starting with version 3.0 the file is within the plugin directory and is filled out with new templates as they are created.

We have used [ziggeo] before should we update our code to [ziggeoplayer] and [ziggeorecorder]?

When we do changes we look to support older versions of our service as well as our plugin. As such our plugin still supports the [ziggeo] codes. The new codes for templates make it much easier for you to know what it is right away as you look the code.

It also makes it easy for others (like yourself) to add your own type of template.

Is there a way to load templates without going to settings to see their names?

Yes, we added Ziggeo Video Aid button to the toolbar of your TinyMCE shown right above the Post editing. It will allow you to quickly add your templates to your post without ever leaving it.

If it detects that it needs to get the video token set it will show the same to you and allow you to quickly set it up by pre-selecting it for you.

Is there an easier way to get the body of a template / template structure into our post instead of the template id without doing edit to get it?

Yes. To add the template you use Ziggeo Video Aid button in the toolbar. To get the body, you use the same button, and click on the same option. The only difference is that to get the body of the template loaded, you need to press Shift on your keyboard while clicking on the template ID.

We have few plugins that show the Post editing toolbar in public as well and do not want Ziggeo button to be shown as well

It is not shown there. We have added a check to see if it is opened in public or by admin and show it only when it seems to be opened by admin. If you do have some specific plugin installed and by some chance it shows it in non admin places for you, just let us know, we will check it and add support for that plugin as well.

How do we enable integrations?

This is done through your Integrations tab, however we do suggest checking out the Other Notes tab above for more details specific to integrations.

There is a little bit of work involved in this plugin as far as getting it up and running and matching your site/theme, etc. But the support more than makes up for it! They helped me with any questions I had and gave very easy directions on how to problem solve/get things running! 5 stars for sure!

I was extremely interested in trying this plugin and thought it would be a great solution to adding video to my website. I used this plugin along with the “video walls” plugin and I had to manually disable them immediately after installing because it BROKE MY WEBSITE. As soon as I removed this plugin, my website began working again. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLUGIN UNTIL THIS IS FIXED in the WordPress library! Not sure how this plugin works after purchasing the monthly plan, but obviously this is a problem for a plugin that costs up to $399/month. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

This, along with their form based plugins only available on github for now will change the way you think of online video. Its clean, customizable and backed by great support. Go for it!!

If you need a way to add video to your website and comments this is definitely the right plugin for you. It allows for ample amount of free testing and lots of different ways to customize the look and feel of the recorder/player. I also like how it allows for uploading of videos. I am not a developer so I appreciate the support staff being there to answer my questions when I emailed them directly. Bane really went above and beyond to help me, even with my stupid questions. I don’t usually give reviews but I have been truly impressed with Ziggeo’s dedication to making sure I am happy. I am using a paid theme and it both work seamlessly together. Very happy with this.

Changelog

3.1

  • Fixed: Tags parameters were not present in some cases when the new version of template processing was used, this version addresses the same.
  • Added: A new filter to help adding Ziggeo scripts into the dashboard pages if the lazy load is turned on. Filter name is ziggeo_assets_allowed_screens.
  • Improved: Added support for enum property in the template editor, making it easier to use parameters with pre-set options to choose from.
  • Fixed: Issue where if the prerendered templates are not available the returned output might be unexpected v2 template array instead resulting in error; with this fix it will always return the string as expected instead.
  • Fixed: Issue where you could end up with the template token instead of the set parameters when trying to get the template selected for integrations. Filter hook for ziggeo_get_template_player_integrations will also now pass template body instead of the template iD.
