    When I try to add a new author for Vimeo I get a 'Invalid author' message. I have my ID=1962116 and both consumer and secret api key. What am I doing wrong?

    I have the same problem.

    When I leave the Author ID open I don't have the error message but the plug in won't load my Vimeo video's.

    Did you get your consumer and api key from

    If all that is correct, all I can think is that you put a blank at the end of the author name. It won't recognize it then.

    I will fix that in the next version.

    I got the consumer and api key from there, yes.

    And I found the Author ID by accident, and now it works.

    I installed the External Video plugin, added my Author Id for Youtube (my youtuber username), and then clicked "update videos from channels". It said 0 videos found, but I have 18 videos on my uploaded to my Youtube account. What do you think the problem is?
