Here we have three interesting Plugins which will make it much easier for you to manage your blog. Each of these Plugins will perform different tasks. I will give a brief introduction to each one of these two Plugins but with enough information to point out and direct the WordPress Bloggers here, in the right path. Let me start with the Universal Post Manager:
This Plugin will make it much more easier:
This Plugin allows you to share your blog posts by Social Bookmarks, E-Mail, Subscribe via feeds, manage HTML tags, disable HTML tags one after another checking according all check boxes in admin panel, filter phrases , create shortcuts (for replace to links, images), Print your pages and posts and save your posts, pages as PDF, XML, Text, HTML and Word Document….Find out More
As you can notice at the end of my posts, there are buttons located for the reader to choose from, just in case they would like to Print or Save the post.
The “Stream Video Player” Plugin
I have searched for many streaming video players Plugins to place videos on my WordPress.org Blog and the best one that I found is named very appropriately. It is named for exactly what it easily accomplishes and that is to stream video by form of a player. The name of this Plugin is Stream video Player, visit the Plugin install page. After you install this Plugin, you will see it show up as a separate button on your Dashboard. If you visit the FAQ link there and click on it > then click on How to encode video and use the plug-in. Great video explaining everything you have to do and in detail. These are must watch videos, before you go any further. This Plugin will add a button on your post editor, you’ll see it and the video will show you where it is. Once you click on this button you will be directed to move the the crossdomain.xml to another folder, it will tell you exactly which one. Retry that button again and you will see a box like this:
Here you will have to add or change three things (Where the asterisks are) but there is one thing which is very important and I will show you here in this illustration:
Here in the Video Provider you must click on the type of video you are choosing to exhibit. Remember, if it’s a video of yours that you uploaded to your website then click on “VIDEO.”
One more very important thing>>> Make sure you upload your images and .flv files to wp-content/uploads because as you will notice, this is where the Plugin designates and uses to upload from. If it is a YouTube Video then copy and paste the link in the VIDEO box and it will pick it up. Just play with it and you will get it. Good Luck, you will not need it, this Plugin is well documented!
Not to mention, you will get a widget so you can place videos on your sidebars also! Enjoy!
Here’s an example of the quality, great stuff:
