    So, I’m using shortcoder to build a video player using Plyr. With Plyr, you can pass in multiple sources. So, for example, a m3u8 file, a high resolution mp4, medium resolution mp4, and low resolution mp4. However, there might not always be all four of those. Rather than building four different shortcodes, I was curious if it was possible to do something like:

    if %%m3u8_URL%% then
    <source src="%%m3u8_URL%%" type="application/x-mpegURL">

    Please let me know.


    Hi Aj,

    Thanks for using Shortcoder. Since shortcoder plugin is designed to create “shortcodes” for huge text/HTML/script/CSS there is no option to provide dynamic content.

    The reason is that, allowing such functionality is basically creating a programming system. Advanced users can create a shortcode manually using PHP with such logic.

    I would suggest users create a shortcode manually with PHP with full control over the content. Below are some docs regarding the same.

    Hope this is helpful 🙂
