This is a simple plugin to let you ahre recent posts via a shortcode onto any page or using the widget. Using the advanced parameters you can also limit the number of posts show, specify to use posts or pages, get specific categories or hide, show or limit the excerpts. You can use a custom image instead of featured image and pull author data if you like.
This looks to be a pretty good plugin for displaying recent posts.

Gocha Video Comment
sent in by Marcin Gocha
premium Plugin $25
If you use videos on your site and would like to have a system that uses WordPress comments to allow for comments on the videos this one is for you. It allows your visiters to select video time code to make the comment on instead of just the entire video. You can apply plugin to all videos or only videos you insert with a shortcode. It groups comment togetehr if many peoplle comment on same section of a video. You can set it to only allow coments during a specific point in the video and customize it in many ways.
What they say about it.
A plugin thanks to which your readers can directly comment videos in your posts. The comment can refer to specific scenes (timespan), as well as single chosen points. Implementation with native WordPress comment system allows for using default features – such as answering to already existing comments. The plugin is particularly useful when you have a website with trainings, or maybe you are a videoblogger or a videomaker sharing the progress of your works with clients. There is also a great potential in longer productions, where the audience is able to refer both to specific scenes and multiple short forms in one entry – each movie will have its exclusive comment system. Furthermore, the dynamic timeline allows you to observe the comments that appeared in reference to the specific scenes. Clicking the number, you can play the film directly from the commented section. You can also see how the comments overlap. Support for YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Google Drive, Dropbox and integrated WordPress Media embed makes the plugin quite a versatile and universal tool.
– connect your video files with your WordPress comment system
– two modes of comment mechanics – general commenting of a wider section of a movie; or a precise point of a video for better accuracy
– wide support for YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, Google Drive, Dropbox and integrated WordPress Media embed
– dynamic and static comments – the changes take place dynamically when the user is watching the video
– Visual Composer integration – shortcodes for easy and convenient implementation
– interactive timeline shows info about comments and their reference duration
– deeper personalization – you can proces all the videos through the plugin, or only those implemented as shortodes, while the standard ‘add media’ videos will act according to normal WP standards
– have transparent conversations around comments – no more mess of ‘who talks to whom’ – polemics about the same aspects are placed within one cell
– mobile friendly
– pot file included
– developer js/less file included
– custom video parsing – all videos or only those added as shortcodes;
– customizable choice of platform support
– comment grouping in sections – first comment mechanism – if many users comment a similar area, the comments are put into a single group to improve the general transparency
– comment only for a specific point– second comment mechanism – comment only one moment of the video, of course with expandable reply tree
– include or exclude posts or pages
– dynamic/static comments
– comments order
– hide/show the timeline
– hide/show default form
