Custom Upload Options Pro

Select an aspect ratio to always use for files, set maximum dimensions to save server space, and organize files in a custom subirectory of your uploads folder. The widescreen aspect ratio option helps prevent those annoying black bars on some videos.

Supercharged Bulk Scanning Pro

Save time when scanning your past posts by skipping posts with featured images and by limiting the search to specific tags or categories.

Disable Providers Pro

Lower overhead and prevent unintended thumbnails by disabling video sites you don't use.

Provider Custom Fields Pro

Some templates and developers only store a video ID in a custom field like “youtube_id” or “vimeo_id”. With advanced custom field settings you'll be able to set an individual field for each provider.
