This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Genesis Media Project


The Genesis Media Project plugin currently adds a video post type with easy to use meta fields for adding videos to your site.

Videos are imported via the WordPress oEmbed feature, or may be inserted via embed code.

MP4 videos may also be added by inserting a URL to the hosted video and are played using the Flowplayer video player.

Unlike other video plugins, all code is validated and works correctly with WordPress scripting for maximum compatibility.

Video thumbnails are automatically pulled from several sources including

  • Youtube
  • Vimeo
  • Dailymotion

Wmode is correctly set for videos allowing drop down menus and overlays to work correctly with the video.

This plugin requires the Genesis Theme Framework aff link

This is, sorry was, a favorite plugin of mine that I have used for various clients and my own website. When it stopped working I was crestfallen. What a shame to lose it and have to go back to embedded YouTube columns in a table. SUCH a bummer that this plugin is not supported. I tried to contact Nick the Geek, the developer, but strangely did not get a reply. He’s been in the past quite responsive to his fans, but I guess the work load is too much for one family man to handle. I hate giving this a low rating, but I think it’s important people know before taking the time to try to make it work. Because it’s not an easy plugin to work out. And then for it to not work really sucks.
