Works fine on my live site, but doesn’t work and isn’t configurable on localhost. Makes it next to impossible to run proper version control as a result.

Absolutely no developer support either, which seems to be a trend for some time now, given the reviews below.

There seems to be no support; requests won’t be answered. The documentation is a kind of weak in regards to sufficient usage examples. Would be great if the author could take some actions on that. Otherwise a (possibly) great piece of software can’t be used as expected.

Wonderful addon! Makes adding video content drop-dead easy for clients. The built-in search of Youtube and Vimeo is amazing. This sets a new standard.

Great support.  Great add-on.  Perfect for our editors.

I recommend doing business with Duktee.  After opening the forum thread “Video Browser doesn’t appear” we received comprehensive support and a successful iteration of the add-on that works great.  Thanks, Benjamin.

Nick – it will work as advertisied if you 1) make sure your custom field has text formatting: None + the setting “Automatically turn URLs and email addresses into links?” turned OFF in your channel / weblog settings. Yup, this should be mentioned in the docs, I agree.

I have never been able to get this to work. If you create your Youtube link as a custom field inside the {exp:videoplayer…} tags, it always outputs “<a >“ — completely broken.

Seems to be no support either.
