Since that time we’ve privately released nearly nine versions of the plugin to about 50 beta testers. From their feedback, we’ve been hard at work creating what I’m excited to be able to release to you today: The first public version of our plugin called the Video companion plugin for WordPress.
Not just for comments anymore
Commenting with video on any WordPress-powered blog is a lot of fun, and more and more people are trying it out each day. But, our plugin isn’t limited to only enabling video comments. After the first few versions were released, we saw an immediate need for the same functionality to be available from within the WordPress administrative area – directly on the Write post page. Now you’re able to record with your webcam or include a video that you’ve already uploaded to Viddler, right from our blog’s administrative area, into a new post with speed and ease.
Talk about a time saver! We think you’ll really like it.
Test it out!
Want to kick the tires? You can download a copy for yourself from our wiki page for this plugin, or – you can try it out on a few of the blogs that already have this plugin installed. Here is a short list of only some of the great web sites that have already installed and tested our plugin for us.
Want to show off your installation of the plugin? You can do that by adding your site to the growing list of web sites that have installed.
All you have to do is edit this page. Aren’t wikis great?
Thanks to our beta testers!
I’d like to personally thank all of the beta testers that helped us get to version 1.0 of the plugin. I had a great time working until the wee hours to get it setup correctly for your site, and releasing a few versions a day sometimes. It has been fun.
So – go grab the plugin (you may download it here too)!
