  • Fixed a deprecated function call
  • Changed the default timeout for the remote request to 10 seconds. If you need to further extend the timeout for any reason, you can also use the 'ooyala_http_request_timeout' filter.


New Features:

  • You can now set a video thumbnail as your post featured image (if your theme supports featured images)

  • The plugin uses a media screen instead of a tinmyce button, and the popup look more like WP's own media screens
  • The shortcode has been converted to use WP's shortcode API. Old version compatibility is maintained.
  • Use WordPress's content_width as default if it is set for the video width.
  • JavaScript can now be localized as well.
  • Switched OoyalaBacklotAPI to use WP's HTTP class


  • Pulled config into config.php
  • Added Upload functionality to second tab with example label config


  • Added screenshots to package for SVN. No other changes made.
