I have Shortcodes Ultimate plugin, and I would like to change this plugin video player to Video.js player.
That's becouse, the original player is very afful, and instabil, and you can't control volume, can't replay the video,so this player very insufficient.
I can't use the original wordpress player,becouse the plugin use the same short code as the wordpress short code and this do a little conflict.
Example for the plugin shortcode:

[video url="http://www.neocsatblog.mblx.hu/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Cas-és-a-sex.mp4" poster="http://www.neocsatblog.mblx.hu/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/not-bad.png" title="Castiel találkozása a szex-el"]

I can't delete this plugin,becouse I use some usefull function in here.
So the bestway be if I can change the video player to Video.js player.

You can try to re-register the default WordPress [video] shortcode:

 * Re-Register the default [video] shortcode
 * WPSE: 120057
function wpse_120057()
    add_shortcode( 'video', 'wp_video_shortcode' );
add_action( 'plugins_loaded', 'wpse_120057' );

Here is the file in the Shortcodes Ultimate plugin that contains the [video] shortcode registration.

  • Okey but,may be better if i can use video.js,thats becouse,this is a best player witch I ever see. Commented Oct 25, 2013 at 14:33
  • Have you tried to install the video.js plugin and use [videojs] ?
