External Libraries Used

Demo

https://plugins.idowstech.com/site/demovideowall

Features


The plugin features 3 modes to use for your video files with VideoJS

  • Carousel (Default)

  • Thumbnail

  • Playlist

Start using with minimum effort

You can provide the list of videos/playlists to the plugin and thats it all will be done by the plugin itself it gives you ease to manange your video files with VideoJS player.

Select the Right Mode for you

The Video wall plugin takes the video tag used by the VideoJS plugin and automatically adjusts its size according to the dimensions of the video player, so you need to be decide which mode will work best for you.

Each mode has its own usage the carousel mode can be used for all sizes player small, medium and large. But if you are limited to use small sized video player on your site then you must use carousel mode.

If you intend to use rather medium sized player or large sized you can use thumb mode as it would provide you with the ability to filter and play the videos using the popular Select2 dropdown just type the name and hit Enter the video will start playing.

And if you are using VideoJs to manage and present your videos in form of playlists playlist mode is the right mode to use for you. This mode is only used for playlists and it is not recommended for small OR Medium size player

Keyboard Support

You can navigate between the slides in all 3 modes using your left <- and right -> keyboard buttons. More over you can use the scroll up and down to navigate between the video slides too if you dont feel like moving to the keyboard and want to stick with the mouse.

How do I get set up?
