[resolved] Playlist via shortcode broken (4 posts)

    I am able to embed via autoembed method, but using the shortcode format on the description page - [lyte id="A486E741B25F8E00" playlist="true" /] - I get a youtube box that simply says "This video does not exist".

    If I click on the small bottom-right Youtube icon, it goes to a URL - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=videoseries&list=PLPLA486E741B25F8E00 which also is a dead-end page on Youtube.

    My current theme has custom input areas that support shortcode, but not autoembed, so I'd like to get this sorted.

    Darn, that's a stupid mistake on my part.

    Could you go into /wp-content/plugins/wp-youtube-lyte/wp-youtube-lyte.php and on line 376 replace

    if ($playlist) {$action="playlist?list=PL";} else {$action="watch?v=";}


    if ($playlist) {$action="playlist?list=";} else {$action="watch?v=";}

    That should fix this. I'll make sure to include this in the next release.

    Morning Pete; I just pushed out a test version of WP YouTube Lyte 1.3.3, would be great if you could download & test this :-)
