The Automatic Youtube Video Posts Plugin automatically creates posts for YouTube videos from any YouTube account, playlist, or search term.
This is most likely due to your Google API Key not being configured properly. You can read on this here. If you've already followed these instructions, do so again from scratch but make sure to NOT specify an IP address when setting up the API Key.
This may also be due to adding the wrong channel name or ID to the channel field. You'll want to paste the user name from the URL, e.g. "https://www.youtube.com/user/NHLVideo" would be "NHLVideo". Or paste the channel ID from the URL, e.g. "https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLj5GQ6Q7-1Jca6nt1Kfxkw" would be "UCLj5GQ6Q7-1Jca6nt1Kfxkw".
The main reason for this is that an interruption occurred during import and a key value in the database which tells the plugin an import is taking place has not properly been reset. You can reset it by using the "Reset" tab in the plugin menu. Read more:
There could be a number of reasons for this.
Firstly, are you paying for cheap shared hosting? Yup. We thought so. This is a powerful plugin and it requires the ability to run for a while. Most likely your server settings timeout before the script can run through a single time. When using the import button, for each channel/playlist you have set up 50 videos at a time are imported. This means 50 videos per channel/playlist need to be retrieved from Google's servers and numerous queries take place per video to create a WordPress™ post. Your server just isn't set up to do this. Try importing from less channels/playlists. Try importing from one channel/playlist at a time. Try upgrading your hosting. We may be able to help host your solution. Contact us.
Did you just upload the video? It takes time for Google to cache your new videos; even up to a day or more.
Are you attempting to import from too many channels? You could be pushing your server to its limits.
When you set up your Google API Server Key you need to provide an IP address(es) your hosting server uses to connect out to 3rd party services. Most likely you input an incorrect IP address. Your hosting provider should be able to inform you of what this IP address is if you're not able to find it yourself.
