What is the Video Plugin Chrome Extension?

The Video Plugin Chrome extension is an advanced publisher tool that assists in finding rich video content to supplement your web posts directly from your Chrome web browser. The Chrome extension version is mostly identical to the CMS Video Plugin with a few minor limitations as it's operating from the browser level and not integrated with your CMS.

 

 

Limitations

As the Video Plugin Chrome Extension is operating on the browser level it does not have permission to modify web pages you are viewing, therefore the following limitations are applied:

  • No 'Add to Post' Button - Instead you can click on 'COPY TAG' to copy the player tag and embed it in your web page.

  • No 'Add Description' Button - Instead you can mark the text in the plugin and copy manually using the right-click actions menu or a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl/Cmd + C).

  • No 'Add Transcript' Button - Instead you can mark the text in the plugin and copy manually using the right-click actions menu or a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl/Cmd + C).

  • No Automatic Semantic Results - Because the extension cannot read the content of the page automatically, it cannot search and display semantic results by itself.
    Instead, you can mark a line, paragraph or block of text, right-click and select to 'Search for semantic results' from the actions menu.
