Support » Plugin: Youtube Live Stream Auto Embed » Could be great but…

  • This could be a great plugin but while the core works, it has it issues.

    1. The documentation is terrible. Not up to date with the latest YouTube methods.
    This makes setting it up harder than it should and too many hours of me watching other peoples videos to understand the issue.

    2. Implies that it detects a live stream happening…and does not…unless you re-load the page manually, your viewer will miss the presentation.

    3. Same thing for when the stream goes off line. It will sit there and indicate that it is online, when even the live stream feed says that it is off line.

    Great concept, does work, but I will have to either modify the code myself to allow it to detect a actual live stream or find another plugin that will force a reload when it detect streams.

    The author wrote to me once and have since stopped communicating, so that is the reason it is a 3 and not a 4. It could be a 5 rating..the potential is there.
