Frequently Asked Questions

Is the player mobile compatible when I embed it into my WordPress website?

Yes, absolutely! When a mobile user opens your WordPress page with one of our players we automatically detect his mobile device and deliver a full HTML5 player.

I have a responsive WordPress website, is your player compatible?

Yes, single players are fully compatible with responsive layouts. Playlist players need to be set to a static size as these are custom created by each user.

Is it possible to embed the player without the RAW plugin?

We recommend using the RAW plugin as compatibility is dependant on the type of WordPress theme you use. Some themes completely brake and change the embed codes. The RAW plugin prevents the theme from altering the pasted code.
