Player Features

Responsive
With the rise of responsive websites we have added the ability to place our player inside a specific div tag. If you set the responsive variable to "yes" you can then place <div id="wthvideo"></div> inside of the div you would like the video to play in. This will place the video inside of that tag, where ever it is on the page. true or false
showDevice
Sometimes you may not want the video to appear on devices. This will set that(true or false)
Cookies
Use any of the functions that require cookies.(true or false)
Position
There are 2 options:
  • fixed-The video is positioned relative to the browser window. When you scroll the page the video stays in the same place.
  • absolute-The video 'sticks' to the page. If you scroll the page the video scrolls with the page
Positioning
You can set the position of the player on the screen:
  • left: Usual options are "auto", "0" or "50%". 0 will put the player on the left side of the screen. Auto puts the player where the right value places it. 50% place the left edge of the player at the middle of the screen then set the centeroffset value below to move the player to the left or right.
  • right: Usually 0 or "auto" If the left value is anything but "auto" this should be auto.
  • divTop: auto or the number of pixels from the top you want the player to be.
  • bottom: "auto" or the number of pixels from the bottom you want the player to be.
  • centeroffset: Set to "auto" unless left is set to "50%" then the number of pixels from the center. Negative numbers are left and positive are right.
