Docusaurus Soft Design - Sticky Media Plugin

This optional feature is triggered by the CSS class attached to the anchor element and might increase the user's retention (bounce rate) because the audience is kept on-site. The user can choose to maximize, minimize and close the video, similar to the visualization options on YouTube.
