BYOB Videos Publishing System for Thesis 2

The BYOB Video Publishing System for Thesis 2.6 makes publishing videos with full Schema markup a snap!  The system consists of 2 parts, the plugin for adding the settings to WordPress and the box for adding video details to Thesis 2 templates.  Not only can you completely customize what video details you record and how they are displayed but you can also rest assured that the appropriate Schema.org markup is added to them.

The plugin creates the ability for you to organize and display your videos via playlists.  It works with all of the major video hosting systems (YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Blip TV) as well as with self hosted videos – whether stored on your webserver or delivered from Amazon S3 (or other CDN).  The plugin also fully integrates with Yoast Video SEO – so that you only need to enter the information once and both plugins will use the same settings.

All that PLUS it automatically makes your videos responsive. No cut off videos, no black bars – just a smooth resizing of your videos to fit mobile devices!
