The free version offers everything you typically look for: mute, loop, autoplay, add subtitles, and several other features. Installation and configuration are easy. It. Just. Works. Great. Thank you!

I downloaded the plugin and everything worked great. And after a few days, everything broke. I read the message that after the update the plugin needs to be reconfigured. OK. It’s not terrible, I reinserted the new subtitles, wasted hours trying to set everything up again, when after the new update, everything broke again. In addition, it is impossible to select the subtitle, it is always disabled.I tried to get something positive out of it. The only positive from me is deleting this plugin because there is no point in it being so unstable and unplanned programming.

To quote the plugins FaQ. “No, Its completely free.” Is a total lie. 70% of the features are locked behind a paywall, even simple features such as player controls. This is a joke.

When playing video and close it by clicking anywhere on the website, the scrollbar will not be visible. Please help me fix this weird issue. There is no issue if I close the video using the “x” icon but clicking anywhere will hidden the scrollbar.
