    Hi. Great plugin! Thanks for writing it.

    I'm trying to use it in a widget and it doesn't work. All the settings are the same as on sites where it's used in a post. Is there a way for me to get this working inside a widget?

    Are you getting broken video links? I had the this problem with my site, then I realized that youtube is now producing their links in a format different than YouTube Simple Gallery is designed for.

    Reference: http://testofmanhood.com/video-gallery

    I grabbed the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0mZJcVfmaM but I just got a grayed out link.

    I then removed the "watch?" and changed the "=" after the v into a "/" to create: http://www.youtube.com/v/o0mZJcVfmaM

    The plugin then worked properly.

    The next version will support multiple widgets.

    I've got the same problem - tried changing the link as described by banjax but it still doesn't work. I get a 'broken image' icon when I do that.

    I'm having the same problem. I tried with multiple links and only one link and I still get a grey video icon. When I have multiple links it shows only one video even though they are on separate line breaks.

    Here's one of the links I'm trying to use.

    tbianco: The plugin doesn’t support links to user pages. You can only use video links, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZIGp-6t27Q

    Same issue here: Widgets just shows the grey blank thumbnail and no video loads.

    How can I fix this issue??

    Thanks
