YouTube Video Gallery and Management

YouTube Showcase is a powerful but simple-to-use YouTube video gallery plugin with responsive frontend.

Each YouTube video resides on its own page with WordPress comments enabled. Video pages are automatically created when you insert the YouTube VIDEO ID on the video page.

YouTube Video ID is a 11 character string that YouTube uses to uniquely identify each video. For example, the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K4uBRkFJEU has the id 9K4uBRkFJEU.

Using video thumbnail quality option for videos, you can change the dimensions of thumbnails offered by YouTube. For example, you can use an image 4:3 ratio instead of default 16:9. However, you should stick to this ratio for all videos.

Mentioned in WPBeginner's Best YouTube Video Gallery Plugins

YouTube Showcase is designed and developed without writing a single line of PHP code using WP App Studio WordPress Design and Development Platform.
