Find out why FireBlocks Gutenberg Video Block is the right choice for your WordPress site.


YouTube & Vimeo Support

Add videos from the most popular video hosting platforms with ease. At the moment, the Video Block supports YouTube and Vimeo videos, but we are looking into adding DailyMotion, Facebook, Twitch, and self-hosted video as well.


No Page Speed Impact

Most of the WordPress Video Plugins are instantly loading videos damaging the user experience and page load time. Our WordPress Video block speeds up your site by deferring the loading of the below-the-fold videos to when they will enter the viewport. We are using a lazy-load technique based on the browser’s Intersection Observer API.


Customizable Video Player

Make the video autoplay or autopause, start the video muted, loop the playback when it ends, or even start the video at any time stamp you want. Additionally, you can display your own custom cover image or use the one from the provider. You can also apply a background color, border, shadow, margins, and paddings to make it match your site’s design even further.
