Read more about player parameters here:
If you use multiple galleries in the same page you can either:

Wrong: (2 same galleries cannot repeat in the same page!)
[apvg player_id="1"]
[apvg player_id="1"]
[apvg player_id="1"]
[apvg player_id="2"]

2. Use same gallery with different instance_id in shortcode:
[apvg player_id="1" instance_id="0"]

How to show Playlist selector above the gallery?

To display playlist selector inside the gallery, choose Use playlist selector in Video Sources tab. All the video sources you have created will be listen in Playlist selector. Note that if there is only single video source, playlist selector is automatically hidden.

How to play video on hover?

This feature is available for desktop browsers.

Use these settings in Gallery style tab:

Gallery has option to insert advertising content (Adsense, Amazon Affiliates, Commission Junction etc...). To add advertising content go to Glalery manager - Ad content tab:

Enter your advertising code here. You can add ad content that will be placed in the gallery below the grid. You can also add ad content that will be placed in the video popup window. Make sure it properly formatted so it doesnt break the layout!

Example how to add AdSense code:
<script async src=""></script>
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});


Sometimes you may want to fully uninstall the plugin and delete all plugin data. To do so, go to Settings section and use the following option:

Then you can deactivate and delete plugin from WordPress -> Plugins section.

If the gallery doesnt load?

Check that you have created Vimeo API credentials correctly, as it described in Vimeo credentails section. Sometimes if you suspect the Vimeo api keys are not valid, you can create another project in Vimeo and try with different keys.

If the plugin does not work as expected, try the following tests to see if it makes a difference and what could be causing an issue:

1. Update to latest plugin files available on Codecanyon

2. Switch to default WordPress theme

3. Check for errors in browser developer console (Chrome F12 key, Console tab)

4. Try to deactivate any 3rd party plugins (the ones that not come with WordPress)

5. If you still have issues after you have done all changes above, you can send a message at , provide your PURCHASE CODE, provide a link to your live page, and a temporary user and password for your WordPress admin panel so we can have a look.
