URL Option: Enter your Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram, Facebook, MP4, WebM, or OGG link in the “Video URL” contestant entry field and we’ll take care of the rest. The WP Voting Contest Core Plugin does not support video uploads on it’s own. If you need support for front end video uploads by the contestants with optional YouTube publishing capabilities you will need to purchase our Video Upload Extension that will allow for video uploads which then publish to your youtube account for display while retaining the original uploaded versions.
URL Option: As of version 3.5.6 we have added support for Instagram Video URL’s. You must copy the URL from the Instagram Video page. From Instagram, click the video, in the new window, copy the URL. That is the URL that our video URL field will support.
Embed Option: Videos are submitted by the user adding the embed code in to the Description field. The embed code would be given to the contestant by 3rd party video sharing websites.
