Youtube Feeder

Embed a dynamic Youtube video feed anywhere on your WordPress blog.

Q: Why don't all videos show up?

A: Youtube restricts some videos from being embedded on public websites. This can be for copyright reasons or settings configured by the uploader. As a result, this plugin will not be able to embed those videos.

If you are the uploader, and you didn't restrict public embedding on the video yourself, it's most likely because music in the video is copyrighted or it contains clips of a copyrighted video. You can review Youtube's fair use policies and submit a counter-notification if you feel your video falls within fair use.

Q: Why can't I display more than 50 videos?

A: The Youtube API enforces a limit of 50 results for users' upload feeds. Unless and until Youtube changes the limit, this plugin will be unable to display more than 50 videos at a time.

Q: Why is it taking so long for my new videos to show up?

A: First, try clicking the Clear Cache Now button on Youtube Feeder's settings page to make sure you are getting the most up-to-date information available. If that doesn't work, it is most likely a delay in the Youtube API.

Youtube's API is updated periodically throughout the day. As a result, uploaded videos won't be visible in the feed immediately. The Youtube API reference explains the delay. Here are some key points:

  • Uploaded videos will be included in a user's public uploaded videos feed a few minutes after the upload completes and YouTube finishes processing the video.
  • Uploaded videos will usually be available in search feeds within 30 minutes to two hours after the upload completes and YouTube finishes processing the video. However, this delay may be longer under heavy API server loads.

To make sure your video shows up as soon as possible, upload it as public initially. Until the video is included in the Youtube API, this plugin will not be able to display it.

Q: When will Feature "X" or Release "Y" be ready?

A: I write and maintain this plugin in my free time. I've given it to the WordPress community for free because I want to give back to such a great open source project and hopefully help others along the way. I don't have any deadlines or release dates for this project because it takes a backseat to my full-time job.

If you're waiting for a specific feature, you can hope I get some free time soon or consider making a donation (using the link under Support). If I receive a donation for a specific feature, I will prioritize that first and get it out as soon as possible.
