How do I find the YouTube user id?

The username who uploaded a video to Youtube is located below each video, where says something like in this example, "Published on June 25, 2012 by DisneyShorts", where DisneyShorts is the username. Click on the user name and you will find the user id in the url of that page: https://www.youtube.com/user/DisneyShorts. DisneyShorts is the id of that user.

How do I find a YouTube playlist id?

If you go to a playlist you will get the following url format: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33942589618ABDE3. The playlist id is what you have after list=. In this example, the playlist id is PL33942589618ABDE3.

I selected showing my playlist in descending order but the latest videos are not displayed, why?

This will happen if your playlist has more than 1000 videos because YouTube API has this limit.

Thumbnails links go to the YouTube page instead of playing the video in the player?

If another plugin or your theme throws a javascript error before Youtube Channel Gallery has been executed, it will prevent Youtube Channel Gallery JavaScript from functioning properly, so thumbnails links will go to the YouTube page instead of playing the video in the player.

The plugin throws the following error in the error console of Google Chrome: Blocked a frame with origin "http://www.youtube.com" from accessing a frame with origin "http://myweb.com". Protocols, domains, and ports must match.

I think this is a browser error because this also happens to players that can be seen in https://developers.google.com/youtube/.

If the plugin is used on a page using SSL, the player will throw warnings in the browser console

See HTTPS Support for YouTube Embeds: "The actual video bitstream, and some additional content loaded by the YouTube player may still be accessed via standard HTTP connections when you use an HTTPS URL in your embed code."
