    When i try to add a youtube video to a video gallery and press the Add Video(s) button the plugin redirects to a blank page, without adding the video in the gallery and hence the database.

    May I know the URL of the blank page you are redirected to? Also let me know your development environment details.

    Same problem, except I am directed to a page with the following message:
    ------------------

    The URL is http://thatwriterswebsite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=cvg-gallery-add#linkvideo

    The plugin looks great, and it's the first of dozens that does exactly what I want. I really hope you continue with it.

    Wait. I might have just fixed the problem.

    I neglected to see the

    Example: Video ID for URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE7VzlLtp-4 is YE7VzlLtp-4

    So the video I was trying to add, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ldrq6kO5go&feature=plcp

    is edited to 1Ldrq6kO5go

    And then it added successfully. Stupid mistake.

    Once I did this, it seems to load. So, this problem solved. Will notify if any other problems are encountered.

    Dear Mdeicke!
    I tried to follow your description above, but no success! Does it mean I have to cut from the youtube video url the charakters beginning from the & sign? I tried it this way, no success. Then I tried to duplicate the characters from after the = sign (betwen duplicated charakters: is) like in the Example url, but the same problem. I tried with the other url of the youtube video, which you can see by edting your video, but also not works!
    I dont understand how you made it?

    First of all, Mr. Praaven was kind enough to create a plugin FOR FREE, so we should never be less than grateful.

    Now, are you putting the links in the Gallery Name? Make sure you are naming your gallery BEFORE going to the YouTube videos tab.

    The Youtube tag begins after the "=" and ends before the "&" and all characters in between should be included.

    Are you using commas to separate? These links:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo5jJpHtI1Y
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGiWlGLTJ1o&feature=fvwrel

    Should look like this: qo5jJpHtI1Y,jGiWlGLTJ1o

    Dear Mdeicke!

    I am really grateful for the FREE Plugin to Mr. Praaven, its fantastic! And now I am grateful to you also for you help! Now its clear, that only the charakters between "=" and "&" must be put in. It works!

    Thanks again!

    I'm having the same problem as stated by @PantherCZ and @nikolastheo.

    I've gone over the Youtube tag to ensure that's correct, re-installed the plugin and set all permissions to 777 just in case but it still displays a blank page when trying to load a youtube video.

    The url I receive is
    http://www.crearepaul3.co.uk/wp-admin/admin.php?page=cvg-gallery-add#linkvideo

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    The version of WP I'm using is WordPress 3.4.1.

    I had the same problem before, but mdeicke helped me to solve it. I can only say the same, that was told me. It is very important which part of the Youtube url you paste.

    Youtube url example looks like this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qez6PEKXh9w&feature=plcp

    But only the charakters between "=" and "&" must be put in the plugin.
    Something like this:
    Qez6PEKXh9w&feature

    Please read the mdeicke's posts also!

    I've experimented with a number of video plugins so understand about the video ID and have been putting it in correctly and triple checked that.

    For some reason, the plugin just isn't working for me which is sad as this sounded perfect and I loved the simplicity as well as the opportunity for my client to update quickly and easily.

    Until this error is fixed however, I've had no choice but to find an alternative solution.

    djspider88,

    I had similar issues, and I believe they were browser-cache related. I have the another problem whenever going to the "Sharing" options on WP where I can't drag the icons over, and it's definitely a cache issue. Don't know if it's some bit of bulk script, or a JS problem. An inconvenience, but you can get around it, and the plugin WILL work for you as long as you have the minimum WP version required.

    Try dumping all your cache and try again. If that doesn't work, go down the list of possible JS problem cures: dumping all temp files, checking browser plugins (such as on Firefox), kill any unneeded scripts running in the background, even rebooting the computer.

    HI guys! :)

    First of all THIS IS A GREAT PLUGIN! My regards to Mr. Praveen Rajan. However it only works on one of my websites. On the other I have the same problem as the others...some JS bug i think..:/ But I don't have enough knowledge to fix it so what should I do?

    Thanks for any help!

    I got same problem as @mdeicke. Did doublecheck ID and entered it 100% correct, I can confirm this as on another server and another wordpress site it works like a charm.

    @cssgirl, to me it looks like xml parsing error on the first blink... But am also thinking that maybe it could have something to do with a server configuration as well, as it is weard that it works on one server and not on another.

    Any help and hopefuly a fix or a hint how to solve it would be apreciated.

    Details from overview (NOT WORKING):

    Operating System : Linux (64 Bit)
    Server : Apache
    MySQL Version : 5.1.63-cll
    PHP Version : 5.3.15
    PHP Max Upload Size : 1.46484375MB
    FFMPEG : Not Installed
    [Note: Preview images for uploaded videos will not be created automatically using FFMPEG. Manually upload preview images for videos.]
    PHP extension SimpleXML : Enabled
    PHP setting allow_url_fopen : Enabled

    However it is working on my other server:
    Details from overview (WORKING):
    Operating System : Linux (32 Bit)
    Server : Apache/2.2.17 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.17 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_bwlimited/1.4 PHP/4.4.9
    MySQL Version : 5.0.95-community
    PHP Version : 5.3.6
    PHP Max Upload Size : 8MB
    FFMPEG : Not Installed
    [Note: Preview images for uploaded videos will not be created automatically using FFMPEG. Manually upload preview images for videos.]
    PHP extension SimpleXML : Enabled
    PHP setting allow_url_fopen : Enabled

    The differences are two, one is 64bit and 32 bit configuration, another is PHP Max Upload Size. Seems that 1.46484375MB is not much, but should be probably enaugh for an xml file parsing...

    Any sugestions anyone?
