Follow

To manage your players click on players in the navigation menu at the top of your dashboard.

On this page you may perform the following actions:

  • create new players by clicking on the + New Player button
  • edit an existing player by clicking on the Edit icon below it
  • delete an existing player by clicking on the Delete icon below it
  • create a new player using the same config by clicking on the Clone icon

 

Using Multiple Players

If you have created more than one player, the reEmbed script will need to know which player to use. Player Rules allow you to define URL paths for each player to appear on.

For example, your site has a category "Sports" and a category "Tech", and you've created a separate player for each category.  Assuming your site uses the following URL structure:

Sports:  http://www.mysite.com/sports/article/...
Tech:    http://www.mysite.com/tech/article/...

You can add the following rules to assign the correct player to each category

Sports player => /sports/ 
Tech player => /tech/

The reEmbed script will try match a rule to the URL of the current page, and if it matches a rule, it will use the corresponding player.

In the case that no rules are matched, your default player will be used.

 

Player Behaviors

There are two possible behaviors that can be assigned to a player.

Fixed: the player will be the exact size of the original embed (default)
Responsive: the player will fill the width of the parent div and maintain the video's aspect ratio by setting it's height accordingly.

We recommend using Responsive behaviors unless your videos are included in a div with fixed dimensions.
