How to Use?

To enable the video features, add a video from the post editor or use the HTML video tag. You can include as many video tags as needed.

Creating Video Playlists

You can create a video playlist within your editor by using the block.

Or by using the advanced settings panel and setting it to „bvideo_playlist.“ Alternatively, you can create a list in your HTML with the id „bvideo_playlist.“

Here’s an example HTML playlist:

  1. Video 1
  2. Video 2
  3. Video 3

You can also create a playlist using a JavaScript array:


var video_playlist = [
„name“: „Video 1“,
„link“: „video1.mp4“,
„size“: 55000000
„name“: „Video 2“,
„link“: „video2.mp4“,
„size“: 475000000
„name“: „Video 3“,
„link“: „video3.mp4“,
„size“: 105000000


To add the JavaScript to your post/page, consider using a plugin like this one.
