Daiko's YouTube Widget

Adds a sidebar widget to display random YouTube videos of your own choice. Uses a ThickBox pop-up player or VideoPlayer widget to play the videos.

  1. Copy the daikos-youtube-widget folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder

  2. Activate the Daiko's YouTube Widget and/or ThickBox on your plugin-page.

  3. Drag the Daiko's YouTube Widget to your sidebar and set a title, and finally your own content (some videos are by default included but will disappear when you add own content).

  4. If you want to override the pop-up player, drag the Daiko's VideoPlayer to your sidebar (wherever you want) and set a title (optional) and the width.

To make your video-list just open the widget-control-panel and add your videos with the following syntax:

{YouTubeID}@{Title}(Line Brake)

Without the brackets.

Add comma separated tag(s) and/or user(s) to add rss feeds to your selection of videos from where the displayed videos will be selected.

Daiko's VideoPlayer selects its random display video from the specified videos in the 1st Daiko's YouTube Widget (Daiko's YouTube Widget 1).

IMPORTANT! Do not add a (Line brake) on the last line...

Good Luck!
