Responsive Videos


It’s never been easier to include responsive Youtube and Vimeo videos on your website. From a simple, intuitive interface you can insert a video right into your posts, pages, and widget areas within seconds. Include a description of the video, customise the look and feel, comes with multiple sizes to choose from that are fully customisable, and several video alignments are available.

A shortcode is generated and is used to create the content. Included in the plugin are shortcode generators so you can create one without worrying about how to write a shortcode manually.

Full supporting information is built right into the plugin with a bespoke plugin settings page. Shortcode information fully documented.

Get started today!


  • Video preview screen
  • Settings – customise description style
  • Text editor shortcode generator
  • Widget
  • Settings page shortcode generator
  • Text editor shortcode generator button


Just install the plugin as normal and activate it. Nothing else required. From the plugin menu you can visit the Responsive Videos settings page and customise your experience.

Works OK but: Adds CSS in head of every page regardless of video being loaded. No option to turn CSS off and manually add to stylesheet. Adds a sub-menu for settings under Plugins. Plugin settings belong under settings menu!

I tried several of the bigger YT plugins before and all of them annoyed me more or less. This one finally did the job: Responsive embedded videos on mobile devices while keeping a maximum size on bigger screens. Simple and effective! You can use all YT parameters like “&rel=0&showinfo=0&modestbranding=1” and even embedding YT playlists is easy by using “videoseries?list=URL”. Great! 2 suggestions: Could you add a privacy option using the “youtube-nocookie”-URL? The plugin settings should be placed under “settings”, not under “plugins”.

Finally one that works, after trying about 5 of the popular ones, this was the only one that actually made my video responsive using the Mayatheme and also allowed to play friendly within other column shortcodes. Thanks very much and keep up the good work 🙂
