Automatically syncs your videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Dotsub, Wistia or Dailymotion to your WordPress site.
Currently supported sites are: YouTube, Vimeo, Dotsub, Wistia, Dailymotion
Go into Settings->External Videos and click on the tab of your video hosting service. Enter your user name for that service. In some cases, this is all you need.
For other hosts, you will have to login to your account and create API keys in order to access your videos. The plugin contains links to do this.
When you register a external video publisher (e.g. a YouTube user), you should hit the button "add new videos from channels" to extract all existing videos. A daily "cron" job then pulls in any newly posted videos from the last 24 hours. If that is not fast enough for you, you can of course always hit that button again.
If you have problems with "cron", consider installing the "Core Control" plugin, which shows you in Tools -> Core Control -> Cron Tasks tab which tasks you have scheduled.
We use OEmbed.
The general shortcode is [external-videos], which creates a video gallery.
You can also now specify [external-videos feature="embed"] to get just the latest video as a featured video and with all its embedding code.
You can further specify [external-videos width="300" height="200"] if you want to change the width and the height of the embedded video.
And you can specify [external-videos link="page"] if you want to get the links on the video gallery to link straight through to the video pages instead of providing an overlay.
Just add the following to your Website URL: ?feed=rss2&post_type=external-videos . You can add a link like this to your theme layout.
In Settings->External Videos, click the checkbox for this.
In the settings for each hosting account, you can choose whether to set default post status to "Published", "Scheduled", "Draft", "Pending", or "Private".
Yes, you can pick any slug you like in Settings->External Videos, as long as it doesn't conflict with other WordPress slugs.
