Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Embeding a Youtube video using a template

  • Resolved biff


    I’d really like to pull in video content from YouTube by embedding it like this:


    * I set up a Pod called media artist
    * I create a field vlogger_youtube_id

    I create a Template that calls up {@vlogger_youtube_id}

    I think my problem is the way I’m managing the fields. What’s the best field type/options for doing this? Thanks!

    The error it sets off says it’s an API issue…

    Sorry, there was a YouTube API error: The playlist identified with the requests playlistId parameter cannot be found. Please make sure you performed the steps in this video to create and save a proper server API key.

    but it works when I just use straight code, 😉

    I’ve never heard of the [embedyt] shortcode; what plugin is that?

    If you’re using a plain text field for the vlogger_youtube_id, I see nothing wrong with your shortcode output, but you haven’t provided how you’re trying to display this shortcode. Are you calling a shortcode against a Pods Template? Some other method?

    If you’re just typing that shortcode directly in a block, it’s not going to work because magic tags only work in Pods Templates.

    The YouTube plugin is this…

    Though I bet I could use PODS to do the same thing. I’ll try moving things over to the template to see if that gets it to work.

    Okeydoke. Let us know what you come up with.

    I ended up dropping the entire code per vlogger, and was unable to place it dynamically.
