As somewhat of a continuation on this topic, I'm working on adding video functionality into an MD client project and decided to double down on my time and create a Video Page Lead.

 

So far this is pretty simple—you have headline, description, and button on left with the video on the right by default (you can swap the positions). For video you can either 1) select a service (YouTube, Vimeo), paste in the video URL & embed code will auto generate or 2) select custom and paste your own embed code.

 

You guys will love this for sure and an idea crossed my mind that I'd love your honest feedback on:

 

Rather than making the Video Page Lead built straight in to MD, I was thinking of releasing it as a paid addon you can simply install as a plugin. I'm not talking a price more than $10, maybe $7 or so. I have about 3 or 4 other smaller addons half done that I'm building for MD only and am liking the idea of framing them as "mini apps" you can purchase for a small price, no recurring fee ever (updates will be attached to your main MD license).

 

What do you think about this? I'm pretty convinced about it but I'd love to hear if you have any counter ideas.

Would def love to have the option of just a background image with a transparent play button in the center as well, some headline/subtitle options with this would be cool too.

 

Swapping between left, center, right is ideal.

I overlooked the center alignment — good call! For the transparent player, I think the way that works is you set the background how you want, then make a video over the same texture/color. Do you have an example if you were thinking something different?

UPDATE: check out this quick video demo of the Video Page Lead. You have all kinds of ways to beautifully present videos with this thing! 

 

Watch video here

 

(soon you'll be watching something similar on the *actual* Video Page Lead)
