Essential plugins for a video blog

Since the website will be heavy on video multimedia, the most important plugins would be ones that enable video playback and integration with sites like Vimeo and YouTube. Typography plugins would also be important for making the links to other pages interesting. I’ll need to browse for social media plugins that are less intrusive the ones I’ve seen so far.

Simple Vimeo Shortcode

This allows for videos from Vimeo to be posted on the blog. It allows for more customization in terms of size and area on the page.

YouTube Premium Videos Integration for WordPress

I like this plugin as it allow for whole YouTube channels and playlists to be embedded in a blog.

Drop Caps

This is an interesting typography plugin that I think would be useful in making my links more interesting and aesthetically pleasing.
