Fast Tube

Description

Fast and easy way to insert videos from YouTube right into your WordPress blog posts or pages. It doesn’t matter if you paste the whole YouTube video URL or just the video ID… Surround it by square brackets and Fast Tube will do the job. The plugin also checks if the video ID is valid so don’t worry if you have similar information on your posts or pages – it won’t be lost, hidden or removed.

YouTubers watch out! Fast Tube 2.3 is here!

FEW GOOD REASONS TO USE IT:

  • NEW VIDEO GALLERY for browsing your videos!
  • NEW TOP-LEVEL Administration Menu!
  • Fast Tube ThumbView with 10 added skins.
  • Options page full of nice settings.
  • Same old fast and easy video inserting method.
  • Database optimized: ALL options -> ONE single record.
  • Future version ideas.
