Better Media Tools Add-on

The Media Tools add-on lacks integration with key video players like JWPlayer. Additionally, it needs an Elementor integration and ideally an integration for all video players generated via shortcode.

  1. I’ve never heard of JWPlayer so I don’t know. I’ll leave this up so we can see what the interest is like.

    For a bit of context we added VooPlayer (now “Spotlightr”) support and it’s been a massive pain to maintain. Super buggy. I don’t want to go through that again.

    Elementor is supported already: https://wpfusion.com/documentation/media-tools/elementor-integration/

    Every video player integration needs to be coded against that video player’s JavaScript API (if they have one, some players don’t). So it’s unfortunately not possible to create a universal adapter for any shortcode-based player. They all need special treatment.

  2. I’m going to mark this complete since we’ve added Presto Player integration (https://wpfusion.com/documentation/media-tools/presto-player-integration/) and fallback tracking for iframes: https://wpfusion.com/documentation/media-tools/usage-guide/#advanced-iframe-tracking. The plugin is now “better” 😉

    JWPlayer is not on the roadmap at the current time, but if anyone needs a specific player integration, please create a new feature request for each desired player.
