Didn't work under any circumstance. Tried everything, but still nothing.

Does exactly what it says on the box, and does it well. Surer light weight and easy to use. To have your theme take care of the width of the latest video, simply omit the width and height parameters from the short code. Thank you for sharing this plugin with us 🙂

Beware idiot user error: dont copy and paste the shortcode from the info page, you'll end up with curly quotes that will break it!: [auto_last_youtube_video user=’davidmerinas’ width=’450′ height=’320′] as opposed to [auto_last_youtube_video user='davidmerinas' width='450' height='320'] Check the forum to get it working for channel ID

It was working great but now the video won't resize to what I need and I received an email saying there was malicious code in plugins/auto-last-youtube/inc/Zend/Validate/EmailAddress.php Any way we can get an update?
