    Advanced Responsive Video Embedder

    Add to List

    This is likely the one and only plugin you will ever need to handle video embeds on your WordPress site(s). It goes far beyond just making your videos responsive! Supports close to everything you can imagine, still keeping it easy & simple.

    If you find this plugin useful please give it a 5 star review. It has 60000+ installs but only 100 reviews after over 5 years!


    • SEO friendly, lets you specify title, description, upload date to provide search engines with the data they like to have for better indexing.
    • WYSIWYG support. No more messing around with shortcodes and previewing.
    • New improved dialog for embedding videos.
    • Magically makes those url embedded videos responsive.
    • No ‘lock in’ if do not use shortcodes and use providers WordPress already supports.
    • Supports almost every video host that supports iframe embed codes.
    • Embeds via pasting the URL in its own line just like WordPress!
    • Optionally use very powerful Shortcodes instead.
    • Clean shortcode syntax [arve url="" align="left" parameters="start=30" ... /], no unnecessary shortcode wrapping.
    • One single button for all providers.
    • Responsive embeds with CSS, much better then with JavaScript.
    • Tries to be as unobtrusive as possible, sets ‘hide brand’ variables if supported, disabled related videos at the end … to help keep people on your site rather then going to YouTube or keep watching videos.
    • Autostart (for providers that support it, mobile browsers prevent this)
    • Custom URL parameters to use all options providers offer.
    • Optional maximal width.
    • Video alignment.
    • Detailed description of options in-place.
    • Custom aspect ratio.

    This plugin is financed by the awesome buyers of the Pro Addon. The development and support of this plugins has become a almost full time job for me so I hope you understand that I can not make all features gratis and that you purchase it to get extra features and support the development.

    Pro Addon Features

    • Disable links in embeds
      Clicking on a title in a embed will not open a new popup/tab/window. Prevents video hosts to lead your visitors away from your site! Note that right click on links still works and this also breaks sharing functionality and is not possible when the provider requires flash.
    • Lazyload mode
      Make your site load faster by loading only a image instead of the entire video player on page-load.
    • Lazyload -> Lightbox
      Shows the Video in a Lightbox after clicking a preview image
    • Link -> Lightbox
      Use simple links as triggers for lightboxed videos
    • Automatic or custom thumbnail images
    • Automatic or custom titles on top of your thumbnails
    • ‘Expand on click’ feature
    • 3 hover styles and 2 play icon styles to choose from
    • Responsive thumbnails using cutting edge HTML5 technology
    • Feel good about yourself
      for supporting my 5+ years work on this plugin. Tons of hours, weekends … always worked on improving it.
    • Show the latest video of a YouTube channel by using the channel URL (updated/cached hourly)

    ARVE AMP Addon

    • Requires the gratis plugins ARVE and AMP
    • Makes ARVE ready for Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)
    • It will display videos embedded with ARVE on AMP pages correctly
    • No options, just works

    • Of course all the customers who bought a addon.
    • Howard Iken of top donor, super nice to me even if I was rude and not deserved it!
    • Ilya Grishkov for bringing up the idea and the first code to cache thumbnail urls.
    • Everybody giving constructive feedback, testing beta versions.
    • Everybody who donated back in the days when this was donation based.

    Thanks to the developers of the software used in ARVE
