    Enric form made a awesome video plug-in for WordPress. We worked together to get it working under the MU version as it first stripped out a lot of code. This is solved now.

    vPIP (video Playing In Place) dynamically embeds a video after the viewer clicks on the link.
    The results are that the page loads quickly with just image and text links. Then when the viewer clicks one of the video links, it's replaced with the embedded video. Clicking on another video link closes the prior embedded video and opens the new one selected.

    The main goal is to keep the viewer on the page. To really see what this is all about go to the plugin website;

    A demo in a MU environment is here

    The supported video (and audio) formats are:

    * Quicktime
    o .mov (video)
    o .mp4 (video)
    o .mp3 (audio)
    o .smi or .smil (dynamic video)
    o .3gp (video & audio)
    * Windows Media
    o .avi (video)
    o .wmv (video)
    o .asf (video)
    o .wma (audio)
    * Flash
    o .swf (video application)
    o .flv (video)

    It's a little hard to find it but it's there... the same as for WP. Select WP installation... just under the header when the rest of the text magically appears... I tried it under mu-plugins though and it refused to go... I did try a couple of changes in vPIP.php plugin file but it didn't help. I'd rather have it globally activated (just my fetish I guess). Anyone can figure this one out?

    We did not try it in mu-plugins.
    If you stick it in plugins dir, next you have to activate it and change the options in the optionspage, check both boxes, that does it for me.

    I have released a new version, 0.16, of vPIP. This version supports placing the plugin in the ../mu-plugins folder. The installation page is at:

    with the WordpressMU installation page is at:

    For WordpressMU, vPIP uses bracketed code similar to those for YouTube video on

    Let me know if you see any problems or recommend any changes.

    Sorry for the late response. It supports any video on the web including YouTube and Google Video. Look at the documentation (not quite complete) for Flash videos at:
