YourChannel: YouTube channel on your website

Description

Do you create or curate YouTube videos? Now turn your website with YouTube links into an engagement platform.

You don’t need more storage or bandwidth, and your visitors hate leaving the webpage they’ve already loaded, so why don’t you show your videos and playlists in your own website.

Tell this plugin your YouTube username or channel ID and it’ll setup your channel in your own property.

What it displays :

  • Banner image, profile picture and username.
  • Total videos and views.
  • Uploads.
  • Playlists (lists videos on that playlist on click).
  • Banner image in footer.
  • All of above are optional. You can choose what to display.
  • Default color accent Black & White.

Features :

  • Easy visual builder with live preview which generates shortcode that looks like [yourchannel user="user"].
  • Play video in Lightbox or Inline.
  • 7 video thumb styles.
  • RTL support.
  • Beautifully responsive (IT’S 2017).
  • Font icons.
  • Feature suggestions are implemented quickly.
  • Smooooth transitions.
  • Shortcode works in page, posts or custom fields.
  • Loads files only if shortcode is present.
  • Quick translation form for UI terms (Videos, Playlists, Loading… etc.).
  • Translation ready.

Don’t let visitors leave your site for YouTube.

Reviews

Awesome Plugin and Support

Installed free version, had some issues of Exceeded Quotas and API not working. Support was quick to respond, and stayed with me until it was resolved. Seems my API and Google had the issues, not the plugin.

Purchased the licensed version. Very happy with the plugin.

Too limited free version

ALL videos are pulled in the free version, including the ones set to private.

So if you want a widget to show a few top videos, or a few videos you want to pick, this isn’t for you.

And generally the free version is way too limited in the options.
