NEW Youtube, Dailymotion & Vimeo Embed Support

You can now embed videos from Youtube, Dailymotion & Vimeo directly at each post/page/product or any custom type that supports featured images.

WooCommerce Support

This plugin came out of a real need with many plugins available out there yet none provides a good integration with WooCommerce.
Really Simple Featured Video plugin provides a straightforward implementation for WooCommerce Product Featured Video, with which your set featured video loads directly into product thumbnails along with any other product images.

Enable/Disable Post Types Support

You can enable/disable support for post types via the settings page though by default featured videos are enabled for blog posts.

Enable/Disable Video Controls, Autoplay, Loop & Picture-In-Picture

You can manage everything for the featured videos, by setting them accordingly, options for these are available at settings page.

Mute Video Sound

You also have an option to control video sound, set this at the settings page.


There are also shortcodes to embed featured video at any post, page or product you want.

[rsfv] shortcode is for displaying set featured video of the individual post anywhere in the post.

[rsfv_by_postid] shortcode is for displaying featured video of any post anywhere you want, you just need to pass a vaild post id to it e.g. [rsfv_by_postid post_id=”281″]

It is supported custom post types, but need to change the code, very easy to use and I tried all of the open source Featured Video plugins, only your plugin can support shortcode. P. S. That's perfect! If your plugin able to pop-up video when it is pressed.

I tried using YouTube embed video URL on posts but it did nothing as I put the link and updated the post. I enabled featured videos on posts in settings.
