Prettier embeds for your native videos in Neos CMS - with nice options like high-res preview images, lightbox feature, captions, and advanced customization of embed options.

Version Neos
1.* ^4.2.*


Most of the time you have to make small adjustments to a package (e.g. configuration in Settings.yaml). Because of that, it is important to add the corresponding package to the composer from your theme package. Mostly this is the site packages located under Packages/Sites/. To install it correctly go to your theme package (e.g.Packages/Sites/Foo.Bar) and run following command:

composer require jonnitto/prettyembedvideo --no-update

The --no-update command prevent the automatic update of the dependencies. After the package was added to your theme composer.json, go back to the root of the Neos installation and run composer update. Et voilà! Your desired package is now installed correctly.


This package is member of the PrettyEmbedCollection which contains following packages:

If you install the PrettyEmbedCollection the video players get grouped into a own group in the node inspector, otherwise they will be in the default group.


What are the differences from the PrettyEmbed series to Jonnitto.Plyr?

PrettyEmbed series Plyr
YouTube Video
YouTube Playlist
Native Audio
Native Video
Advanced captions for native video
Preview image
Lightbox included
Preview image
Javascript API
Filesize (JS & CSS) smaller bigger

All packages from the PrettyEmbed series have the benefit of a better frontend performance since the player gets only loaded on request. So, no iframe/video get's loaded until the user wants to watch a video.



If you want to customize the default settings, take a look at the Settings.Jonnitto.yaml file. If no node property is giving, these default values will be taken. If you, for example, don't want to let the editor choose if the video should open in a lightbox you can deactivate the mixin in your Configuration folder like this:

    "Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedHelper:Mixin.Lightbox": false


If you want to use the player as a pure component, you can use the Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedVimeo:Component.Video fusion prototype.

If you want to read the node properties and let the package handle all for you, you should use the Jonnitto.PrettyEmbedVideo:Content.Video prototype. For easier including in your own node types, you can disable the content element wrapping with contentElement = false. This is useful if you want to create for example a text with video node type.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
