Support » Plugin: Youtube Channel Gallery » [Plugin: Youtube Channel Gallery] Thumbnails wouldn't play at the top

  • Resolved Victoria


    Dear PoseLab,
    First of all, I like to thank you for developmenting such GREAT plugin and sharing it.
    I hereby ask you one question about a problem that I have with this plugin.
    The top video shows and plays fine, but when I click thumbnails, nothing happens..
    the thumbnails get highlighted when mouse over though.

    It’s not my computer or browser’s problem because I can see you Demo plays and works fine. Also, not Youtube’s user ID problem either since yours and mine both are not working, and tested with others too…still same.
    so, I was suspicious about it’s server, so I’ve tested on different server.
    Here are two urls I can show you the problem,
    Didn’t modify any files.
    The wordpress version is 3.4.1 for both, and this plugin’s version is 1.4.5, both are latest version.
    I would very very appreciate if you can help.
    Thank you and best regards.

    I am preparing a new version of the plugin and I would like to solve the problem that some users have when they click on the thumbnails and the player does not play the video.

    I think the problem is that the Youtube iframe API does not work correctly on all servers when using the origin parameter, but I’m not sure because I have no this problem.

    If you want to try this new version and help me solve this problem you must download the plugin from install the plugin and turn off “Extra security (Uncheck if it does not work properly)” in the widget.

    I will wait your feedback.

    1.5.2 changelog
    / / check valid user name
    / / correct position bug in shortcode
    / / correct css hover thumbnails
    / / added new fields to check other options Youtube player
    / / Added video url link on thumbnails to Improve syntax, accessibility and SEO
    / / Redesign of widget interface for managing so many fields
    / / Control of height improved player
    / / improved error handling in javascript. Now, if the API fails it uses the link to Youtube
    / / added field to customize the text link to youtube

    Thanks in advance

    It worked here!

    Now, when I click the thumbnail, it opens a new tab and shows the video in YouTube.

    Thank you, PoseLab

    Hello Lammel

    If you you click on the thumbnail and it opens a new window showing the video in Youtube, this is because the above player was unable to play the video that corresponds with the thumbnail. This is the behavior that I have programmed when the player fails.

    Could you send me a URL?


    I have installed 1.5.2 but the shortcode now asks for a valid user. The user/channel I was using previously worked with the old version.

    Hi fergsta1

    That shortcode is working properly in my development environment. Could you check if you have entered the shortcode in the same way that you have put in this comment?
