Latest Batch of Add-Ons

We’ve just added three new premium add-ons to the TubePress Marketplace that we’re excited to share with you.

  • Vimeo All Access
    Provides TubePress with enhanced access to your Vimeo Plus or PRO account, thus allowing TubePress to work with private Vimeo videos. This is particularly useful if you’d like to hide your videos from display on vimeo.com and only show them on your TubePress-powered site.
  • Flexible Thumbnail Rows
    Automatically adjusts the height of thumbnail rows in TubePress galleries, ensuring that the metadata (runtime, title, description, etc) for each video is completely visible. Without this add-on, TubePress uses a fixed height for the thumbnail rows, and any metadata that is taller than the row will be cut off.
  • QuickPlay
    Replaces video thumbnail images with fully-functional embedded video players. Among other things, this allows your users to watch your videos right within the context of your gallery.

Purchase of any add-on comes with a full year of upgrades. Keep an eye on the TubePress Marketplace as we’ll be adding more add-ons over the coming months.

TubePress 3.1.2 Released

Today we are pleased to announce the immediate availability of TubePress 3.1.2. This version is primarily a maintenance release: squashing a handful of bugs of varying degrees. But we’ve also thrown in a few new features including …

Redesigned Options GUI

The TubePress options page for WordPress has stagnated for some time. We spruced it up and made it responsive so it works well on just about any device.

“Smart” Sort Order

TubePress can now choose the best sort order for your videos based on the video source. For instance, if you are showing videos from your YouTube channel, TubePress will show your videos in the same order they’re posted. Or if your gallery is a Vimeo search-based gallery, the videos will show up in order of relevance.

We’re referring to this as the “default” search order. To activate it, simply use orderBy="default" in your TubePress shortcode, or if you’re using WordPress you can use the dropdown at WP Admin > Settings > TubePress > Feed > Order videos by.

New Translations

We’ve added support for Chinese, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, and Persian. TubePress is now available in nineteen languages!

TubePress 3.0.1 – First Release Candidate

The first release candidate of TubePress 3.0.1 is now available for download! Along with several bug fixes, the highlight of this release is a leaner and meaner JavaScript library. Client-side load times will be significantly improved due to lazy script loading, and TubePress should be much less vulnerable to bugs in other scripts loaded alongside it.

While we have tested it extensively, we do not recommend running this version of TubePress on production or busy sites.

Thanks for helping us test!
