Say hello to Viddler’s Simple Player

You may have seen this new player around the Internets, on our new front page, or perhaps inside of our video commenting plugin for WordPress, but we just haven’t had the chance to announce it yet.

Say hello to Viddler’s Simple Player.

Thanks to our friend Brad Garland (friend: thegarlandgroup) and his skiing video, you’re able to see the great quality and simplicity of this new player. If you’d like, you can swap this out to view a few great macro photos (link will only work on our blog) taken by another Viddler.

Don’t need all of the extra, yet awesome, features of our full player? Now you have a choice. Our Simple Player removes all of the fluff and cuts right to the video in a compact, easy-to-use, brand new interface.

How to use the Simple Player

Soon, but not yet, the simple player will be an option here on wherever you find the normal embed code. But for now, all you need to do is change the points in the HTML embed code where it says /player/ to /simple/. This occurs in two locations.

Here is an example embed code for the above video.

Steps to embed simple player: On the main video page for the above video, click MENU > Embed, and copy the embed code. Change the word “player” in two places, to “simple”, and you’re all set. We’re hoping to have new embed options available through our site very soon and we’ll let you know when that happens.

Take note of the word “simple” in the embed code, which is the only change! If you need any help getting this setup for yourself, just let us know in the comments!
