  • The loading video text is displayed with the text you choose in the options.
  • All advertising options will work (desktop only).
  • The “Close and Play label” option is displayed under the “Before play” and “On pause” ads.
  • Videos will start automatically if you have enabled the “Autoplay” option.
  • Your logo is displayed over the videos if you have set up the logo options.

  • Iframe files.

Those WPS Player features will work with iframe videos:

2. Transform Adult Tubes (experimental)

Choose what adult tubes WPS Player should try to transform
Choose what adult tubes WPS Player should try to transform

This feature is experimental. If, for any reason, videos from those sites don’t play on your site, please deactivate the transformation option.

When you enable the transformation of a tube, WPS Player will try to retrieve the original mp4 video based on the iframe provided by this tube.

Keep in mind that this option can stop working at any time. That means that videos may not play well, fires 500 errors, or not load at all.

We don’t recommend you to use those options. If you want mp4 on your sites instead of iframes, you will have to upload them on your own.

3. Proxy (experimental)

Configure a proxy if adult tubes transformation doesn't work
Configure a proxy if adult tubes transformation doesn’t work

Use the proxy options if you have enabled the transformation for some adult tubes and they don’t work (you still see the tube default iframe). This can work but we do not guarantee it.
