    Joe, I am not understanding how this works. I see there is a new section called Video in the WP menu and I have figured out how to upload links to video from YT and caption (not very easy btw). But how do I get the video onto the website? Do I have to create a new menu item that shows list of videos?

    There's documentation on the plugin settings page; are those instructions unclear?

    What was difficult about referencing the YouTube video?

    I am trying to use your video library plugin to sort a whole bunch of (youtube) videos into different categories and display the video along with a list of other videos in the category.
    I've managed to set up a loop which queries the different categories and displays certain info.

    I'm confused about how to access the youtube url from inside a loop which queries the custom post type according to a custom taxonomy.

    I'm hoping its something like $youtube or the_url() or something.

    Well, the easy way would be reference the shortcode, probably.

    echo do_shortcode("[avl_video id='".$post->ID."']");

    If you just want the youtube URL, it's stored in post meta:

    get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_external', true );

    In WordPress 3.8 and earlier, the use of YouTube videos via the shortcode is a bit of a hack, and you still see the YT chrome. This will be easier in WP 3.9, which will include support for chromeless YT videos.

    I am having trouble in playing the videos with this plugin.I am using mediaelement.js and it is working.When I try to put the video in your plugin nothing starts.I am a beginner please put a video on Youtube explaining how to use it.I have very few knowledge working with WordPress advanced features like putting a code in or as in your plugin putting the option subtitle for let say Dutch Language.
