PotPieGirl LOVES the Traffic Player!
When it comes to easily embedding stunning videos on your web pages, NOTHING beats the simplicity of The Traffic Player plugin. You can quickly put YouTube videos or your own videos on your affiliate pages, squeeze pages, sales pages, etc and it will look like you paid a programmer tons of money to write the code for you so it would not only look amazing, but look 110% professional.
It took me all of about 5 minutes to install the Traffic Player plugin, activate it, write this post, choose a few videos, enter a few quick details into the TP plugin widget, and publish.
Presto – DONE!
And it looks good, don’t you think?
Reviewing the Traffic Player Video Plugin
Here is how the Traffic Player plugin works. You don’t need to take notes, it’s drop-dead simple.
Even *I* could figure it out! lol!
So let’s take it for a test spin…
Watch The Traffic Player in Action

As you’ve probably guessed – that is not MY YouTube video (because no, I have not changed into a man with a British sounding accent….lol).
All I did was grab a YouTube video I wanted to use, popped the video id into the TP plug in widget, picked what “skin” I wanted and a few other options – and PRESTO, one really cool looking video on my site that looks good AND you can barely tell it’s a YouTube video.
I really think so – I LOVE this plugin!
Let’s see it again in action –

Sidenote to my readers: you should always have moments when you laugh so hard you fall down. Life is short – enjoy the little things =)
Ok – One more video for fun. This is so easy to do!
another sidenote to my readers: I didn’t exactly pick this next video randomly or by accident. Perhaps there is a hidden message that just might apply to someone watching? Just sayin’…..

That took a whole 45 seconds to set up – awesome!
How Does The Traffic Player Work?
This is an EASY plugin to set up and use. Ready for the steps?
2. Upload the zip file into your ‘add new plugins’ area of your wp-admin and then activate it.
3. Click the Traffic Player menu on the left side of your wp-admin
4. Register your copy of the plugin by adding your email and stuff.
5. Make a new post or page. When you want to add a cool video, just pick a YouTube video, grab the video id or url, go back to your post, click the littl orange TP icon you will see, and fill in the details and your skin choices.
EASY PEASY – a couple clicks and your videos on your site will look AWESOME!
Important note: If you have any issues with the plugin working, make sure your WordPress is up to date with the newest version.
There are two versions of this plugin available. One is for just YouTube videos and the other is for YouTube videos AND your own self-hosted videos. I got the one for both my own videos and YouTube videos because I do both so I wanted the flexibility. Plus, if someone offers me something awesome, I want everything they have!
As you can see, this is an EXCELLENT wordpress plugin that can come in very handy.
In this Traffic Player review, I give this product THREE thumbs up!
Just playing with this plugin has got my wheels turning with ideas on how to use it. Yes, naturally it would work awesome for squeeze pages for my own products, but think about this…
You’re promoting a product as an affiliate. You find a good related video or review video of that product on YouTube, use Traffic Player to put it on your WordPress page or post so it looks impressive, give the reader some written content, invite them to join your list or even perhaps….click your affiliate link.
How EASY would it be to crank out good-looking and effective affiliate review web pages like that?
Heck, I can think of ways to make it work really well with AdSense sites, too. People love videos – especially when they look attractive at first glance. That can really, really help your ‘time on site’ stats…and perhaps your bounce rate too.
And when it comes to using your OWN videos… wow, the ‘pros’ of this Traffic Player plugin are endless.
– No need to host your own videos so they look professional – just let YouTube host it and they can foot the bill.
– You can easily embed your self-hosted videos.
– You can really UP the views on your YouTube videos – which can help a ton
and on and on and on.
Total no-brainer in my book =)

Oh…and one last thing….
super secret: There is a way when you visit this page to get a demo version of this plugin totally for free so you can try it out. It only comes with one “skin”, but will let you see how easy TP is to use…and how great it makes your videos look.
