I’m aware of the “best video stacks” thread, but it looks quite old, and is pre RW8.
I am after a affordable, clean, simple video stack run a short video (possibly looped) on my front page. Preferably with options to not have an ugly play button all over it - just a nice clean, large video at centre of the page. No thumbnail. Just a clean, big video screen.
I was really bummed to try the joe workman HTML5 video stack (look it up - the moronic bots here grey out posts with links in them) appeared to fail under RW8. JW has a “video wall” stack which is costly and way too fancy for my needs.
Not wanting to use Vimeo etc as there are ugly labels all over their embedded videos.
No there’s no bots blocking posts with links. If other users flag a post it does get blocked until a moderator reviews.
Of course without some controls to play the video you should realize that some users will never see it. Most mobile browsers block auto play, and even many desktop browsers have preference settings to allow blocking auto play.
Stacks4stacks has a couple playres, they have a free demo version to try before you buy.
Yep - well, until there is a process here for penalising people who needlessly flag posts without bothering to consider that there might be a context for links being included in these threads, this forum remains essentially a police state. That’s been my experience. I still have posts greyed out because of this, weeks after the problem was identified. The mods evidently don’t care. It’s a pet peeve of mine, hence the facetious remark.
Thanks for the stacks4stacks links - I will check these out!
