This is an outstanding media plugin. For the paid version, there is excellent support – quick and thorough responses to problems. Many features are only available through the paid version, but that is understandable.

This set of supported formats can be extended with our Documents & Other Files Premium addon. If you need to work with any other non-standard audio/video format, please have a look at the following Premium solution that integrates seamlessly with rtMedia: Transcoder (has a Free version).

Can I embed external media (like, from YouTube)?

Is rtMedia plugin Translation-ready? Is my language supported?

rtMedia is fully translation ready. You can contribute by translating new strings or correcting existing ones from our translation project page. You will require a wordpress.org account to log in.

As all translations are user-contributed, chances are that your language is already supported. You can get in touch with us if you don’t see your language on the translation project page.

I need a new feature, what should I do?

Please get in touch with us and share your ideas.

We cannot guarantee that your idea will be implemented though as new features are highly dependent your idea aligning with our vision for rtMedia Core/Premium addons.

Do I need a license key for rtMedia to work?

Nope! rtMedia Core is completely free and works straight out of the box- just install it like any other plugin and you are ready to go.

License keys are only applicable to our Premium themes and products. Each of them extends the rtMedia Core by adding functionality or styling. They are completely optional though, as rtMedia Core is pretty capable by itself.

Please refer to our License FAQ page if you have more questions.
