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.

Is it possible to have the last 3 or so videos showing?

Yes. You can set a default option for "count of latest videos to embed" and use a parameter/attribute in Template tag and shortcode as well.

Is it possible to set the video start playing automatically?

Yes. You can set a default option for "autoplay" and use a parameter/attribute in Template tag and shortcode as well. If you set "count of latest videos" higher than 1, only the first video will autoplay. If you manually insert more than one video, for the love of all mankind, please don't make them all autoplay.

Can I use more than one YouTube channel?

Yes. You can specify a YouTube channel for each shortcode and template tag instance. But you can also combine multiple YouTube channels by typing them as a comma-separated list (for example, moritzhangouttv,theaudacitytopodcast,oncepodcast) in the default settings, or for each shortcode and template tag instance.

Can the player automatically refresh between events?

Live-refresh is something we're working on and is coming soon.

Can this display videos from a playlist?

Not yet.
