The Automatic Youtube Video Posts Plugin automatically creates posts for YouTube videos from any YouTube account.
Some videos were double posted and it couldn't get the full video description.
I like the idea and basically it is working great (importing, resetting and so on). But the author is doing some unusual things like setting the Youtube Video ID to the post's thumbnail ID meta field. Thumbs / images are fucked up completely for the youtube posts generated by this plugin. No idea why this was done that way.
Code quality is poor, it doesn't conform to WP code standard, and the code just looks really untrustworthy.
But, the basic idea of importing youtube videos as separate posts is probably the best way of building a Youtube plugin (or whatever feeds you would like to import.) And I hope the many issues will be fixed.
Worthy plugin. Will be an excellent stuff if the developer works more on it!
Tested on WP 3.5.1. admin area works perfectly.
On blog front most of the fetched videos that do not have initially 'Show more' tag -> require manual post edit, insertion of 'Insert More Tag' on WP post edit screen and then pressing 'Shift+Enter' to get to 3rd row and then paste video description to make it stylistically correct.
Apparently this plugin does not fetch descriptions from YouTube videos that do not contain any 'Show more' tags on YouTube video post specific URL.
Thank so much for this plugin..
* Cannot update.
* One version fixes a bug and adds another.
* Very volatile (self-aware?).
Cannot recommend this plugin for anyone.
Used plugin on 3 different hosting sites starting from WP 3.4.2 to 3.5. Still having stretched image issues using the latest version 3.1. Wish I could rate this higher but support is very limited. Good concept though.
It's helpful, but entirely useful.
Able to identify videos that have not been fully published. (I further customize my posts around the video, so this is a great way to identify posts that I need to work on and later publish.)
Does not index for duplicates, regardless of Published or Non-Published.
Better Import reporting would be nice.
does not embed Youtube videos to the correct embed size.
