New WordPress Plugin - Alpha Version

Jan 17, 2019

Our new WordPress plugin is out in alpha version and available for testing!

New WordPress Plugin

Some of the new functionalities are:

  • Images are automatically uploaded to Cloudinary, where they are manipulated, optimized and delivered seamlessly.
  • A smooth migration from existing WordPress environments, enabling you to get started with Cloudinary in no time.
  • Automatic optimizations and custom-made transformations can be applied to any of your images.
  • Image delivery through our smart, responsive breakpoints generation API.
  • Cloudinary's comprehensive Digital Asset Management solution is available as a widget.

New WP Plugin

Ready to use it? You can find the instructions here and download the extension here.

Please note that as this is still an Alpha version:

  • The new plugin should work in the same environment as the current plugin, but some issues may occur during this upgrade.
  • When working with Gutenberg as the WordPress editor, some issues may occur (eg. video editing might be spotty).
  • We recommend to not yet migrate to production environments with this plugin as changes may still occur in the URL generation prior to the official launch.

Additionally, this version, and all future ones moving forward, meets Automattic's VIP standards!

We appreciate any feedback!


AI-Based Video Preview Feature

Dec 27, 2018

The Smart Video Previews Feature allows you to automatically generate preview video clips based on algorithms that determine which segments in the original video are most appealing. You can then additionally transform and manipulate those previews if you wish.

You can utilize this new preview manipulation to create a short video for your app feed for fast video loading (instead of loading the full video), or to add video previews when a user hovers over video thumbnails in a website.

Generate these video previews with our SDKs, by applying the e_preview transformation effect to your delivery URL.

Original Video:

Preview Generated:

cl_video_tag("People_Surfing", :transformation=>[
  {:width=>500, :crop=>"scale"},
cl_video_tag("People_Surfing", array("transformation"=>array(
  array("width"=>500, "crop"=>"scale"),
  {'width': 500, 'crop': "scale"},
  {'effect': "preview:duration_8"}
Node.js:"People_Surfing", {transformation: [
  {width: 500, crop: "scale"},
  {effect: "preview:duration_8"}
cloudinary.url().transformation(new Transformation()
cloudinary.videoTag('People_Surfing', {transformation: [
  {width: 500, crop: "scale"},
  {effect: "preview:duration_8"}
$"People_Surfing", {transformation: [
  {width: 500, crop: "scale"},
  {effect: "preview:duration_8"}
<Video publicId="People_Surfing" >
  <Transformation width="500" crop="scale" />
  <Transformation effect="preview:duration_8" />
<cl-video public-id="People_Surfing" >
  <cl-transformation width="500" crop="scale">
  <cl-transformation effect="preview:duration_8">
cloudinary.Api.UrlVideoUp.Transform(new Transformation()
MediaManager.get().url().transformation(new Transformation()
