IX Show Latest YouTube

Provides a shortcode and a template tag to embed the latest video or current live stream of one or more YouTube channels.

The plugin provides a shortcode and a template tag to embed the latest video or current live stream of one or more YouTube channels. It comes with an options page to let you set the default options for YouTube ID(s), width, height, autoplay and count of latest videos to embed. You can customize these parameters with the shortcode and template tag if needed.

This also works great with YouTube Live, by following this fallback progression.

  1. If you're currently live, display the live video.
  2. If you're not currently live, display the next upcoming live event.
  3. If there is no upcoming live event, display the text from Settings > Ixiter Show Latest YT > Show message if not broadcasting.
  4. If there is no "not broadcasting" message, show the most recent YouTube video(s) from your channel(s).

This plugin is now frequently maintained by Daniel J. Lewis from The Audacity to Podcast.
