Fantastic Support! Great Plugin

I tried every plugin and gallery that promised to integrate Flickr and WordPress — and I finally found the solution using Remote Media Libraries and their RML Flickr Pro addon. I now use these plugins with Divi gallery and have achieved all my goals. Special thanks to Louis-Michel for his extra effort solving issues related to Divi and keeping me updated!

Does not work!

Does not work at all!

I have my youtube account so I have the YouTube User ID: xxxx_Hw

But it kept saying Account Status: Invalid when I tried to validate it!
