Meet the Jetpack VideoPress Block, Dashboard, and Plugin

Imagine: You built a beautiful website, painstakingly crafted your brand look, then created an engaging ad and a stylish video to show off your product. You did all the hard work to get someone to visit your site and click on your video, and then the first thing they see is a YouTube ad for a bathroom cleaner. This isn’t the experience that any professional brand should offer in 2023. This is why there’s Jetpack VideoPress.

We think VideoPress is the best video solution for WordPress. Why? It offers both a seamless experience for you and a beautiful, ad-free video player for your visitors. We’re excited to share some new features that will help convince you. Read on to learn more about the new Dashboard, Block, and Plugin for VideoPress.
