   (7 reviews)

4 Screenshots

  • Forum plugin which will display a HTML5 audio or video player for audio/video attachments and/or remotely linked audio/video files.
  • Ability to enable/disable the player for audio or video or both (disabled by default, so effect will not be immediately seen on posts)
  • Ability to enable/disable the respective players from handling remotely linked audio/video files.
  • Ability to control the initial size of the video player so as to avoid 'large' videos pushing outside the post container.
  • Ability to include the original link, to act as a fallback for users with browsers which cannot either
    • display the HTML5 player or
    • play the audio/video file
  • Admin configurable list of audio/video file extensions.
  • Plugin is compatible with IPS 4.1 (tested with and IPS 4.2 (tested with 4.2.5)
  • IPS 4.3.x
    • IPS 4.3.x introduces support for embedding uploaded video attachments in to content, therefore this plugin is not needed for videos.
    • However...
      • Audio is not natively supported by IPS 4.3.x
      • The video player won't display on old posts, so this plugin would be needed in that situation.
    • Future versions of this plugin will enhance the native IPS functionality to provide similar functionality as provided by this plugin (resize, controls list etc)

Please note the following:

  • IMPORTANT: v1.2.7 is supported with IPS 4.4 only, while v1.2.6 is still available for IPS 4.2 & 4.3
  • If you require support then please post in the provided support topic. Do not use PM and do not use the review functionality.
  • Plugin support does not extend to assisting you with adding support for playing a specific audio/video file/codec to your browser (Google is your friend in this situation)

What's New in Version 1.2.6   See changelog


This is an optional update - if you do not use Downloads then there is no need to upgrade to this version.

What's new in v1.2.6

  • Downloads - addition of support for displaying the player in the description of a Downloads submission.


Allows someone to upload a shorter 'preview' version of their main video/audio submission, and have the player displayed when the Download is viewed.

IMPORTANT: this addition doesn't provide a method to allow the display of a player instead of the 'Download this file' button, so do not purchase this plugin if that is your intention. This is the only integration I will be doing with Downloads, as I do not own, nor plan to own, a license to use that application. This integration was easy to achieve with the use of an IPS demo to check the app/module/controller being used when a Download is being viewed.

Does exactly what it says it does, works right out of the box. I've been looking to add webm support forever and this plugin does it.

Another great plugin from @Nathan Explosion.  Very easy to install and configure, and absolutely enhances the multimedia dimensions of my website.  I particularly like the player interface - nice and minimalist, without any big bulky windows that can clash with custom themes.  Well done!

Could you add the total time of the file and the remaining time - as played, on Safari there is none.
