This FAQ will help you to bulk import videos from supported Networks to VideoPro theme

NOTE:

  • For best compatibility for Videopro, We highly recommend using Post [post] format instead of Video [wpvr_video] format. You can choose Default Video Post Type format in WP Video Robot > Manage Options > Posting
  • If you don’t find Post [post] in the list of Default Video Post Type, please go to General tab and select Supported Post Types is Regular Post (post) first.
