Causes the video to start over as soon as it ends. Use ‘true’ or ‘false’.

[videojs muted="true"]


Add a custom ID to your video player.

Add a custom class to your player. Use full for floating the video player using ‘alignleft’ or ‘alignright’.

[videojs class="alignright"]


Text Tracks are a function of HTML5 video for providing time triggered text to the viewer. To use tracks use the [track] shortcode inside of the [video] shortcode. You can set values for the kind, src, srclang, label, and default attributes. More information is available in the Video.js Documentation.

[videojs][track kind="captions" src="" srclang="en" label="English" default="true"][/videojs]

All Attributes Example

[videojs mp4="" ogg="" webm="" poster="" preload="auto" autoplay="true" width="640" height="264" id="movie-id" class="alignleft" controls="false" muted="true"][track kind="captions" src="" srclang="en" label="English" default="true"][/videojs]<h3>Video.js Settings Screen</h3>--------------------------

The values set here will be the default values for all videos, unless you specify differently in the shortcode. Uncheck “Use CDN hosted version?” if you want to use a self-hosted copy of Video.js instead of the CDN hosted version. Using the CDN hosted version is preferable in most situations.

If you are using a responsive WordPress theme, you may want to check the Responsive Video checkbox.

Uncheck the Use the [video] shortcode? option only if you are using WordPress 3.6+ and wish to use the [video] tag for MediaElement.js. You will still be able to use the [videojs] tag to embed videos using Video.js.
