Buggy Code
By , for WP 4.0

Functionality and design are supreme. Code is buggy leaving implementation difficult. Searching for alternatives.

Code injected onto page!
By ,

I have ithemes and Wordfence on my site, and admin area is totally locked out via a hidden login page AND htaccess, and it only allows my ip...tons of security...so I have to attribute this injected code to the plugin itself. Got this crap on my Christian Radio station website: <div id="tubepress_gallery_452526505_thumbnail_area" class="tubepress_thumbnail_area">

<div class="tubepress_thumbs">

Needs to be responsive!
By , for WP 4.0

In this day and age, everything needs to be responsive. TubePress, which is otherwise a great plugin, falls way behind because it does not adapt to the width of the screen. Please make it responsive!

Хороша штука
By , for WP 3.9.1

Довго вибирав,, що поставити собі на ютуб відео. Зупинився на TubePress, хоча і не самий, але ж простий і надійний. Також можна налаштовувати, знаючи основи css. Хоча при зміні розмірів вікна, розмір вікга ютуб не змінюється. Можна подивитись на мому сайті стрибки з парашутом.

Great but not responsive
By , for WP 3.8.3

This plugin is awesome, if you don't care about the 60% of mobile traffic that arrives at most sites.

I installed it on my podcasting site http://www.hablandodetecnologia.com and it works like a charm. That is, until you try to access the page from an iPhone. Then it's a mess.

I contacted the creator but they don't seem to care. They never even answered.

UPDATE:

I removed this plugin and replaced it with the Pro version of "Srizon Responsive Youtube Album" . It costs $15 but it's worth every penny.

heavy plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

P3 - Plugin Performance Profiler (plugin) identified Tubepress as the heaviest plugin in the site I manage by far so I disabled it to see how much I save on load time. Here were the results:

Plugin Load Time: 0.330 (sec. per visit)
from
Plugin Load Time: 0.880 (sec. per visit)

Plugin Impact: 43.7% (of page load time)

Not Responsive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Lack of responsiveness is a deal killer for me.

Not responsive / Buggy playback
By , for WP 3.8.1

As a long time user of this plugin (late 2000s), this was the only real game around for youtube playlist playbacks. However, in the last couple of years there's been a flurry of updates which has introduced more bugs than fixes, and broken the core functionality of the player -- which is *NOT* responsive out of the box -- which required me to manually roll-back to older versions. BTW- There are some CSS hacks floating on the net to make the player responsive, but its a hit or miss based on the theme one uses.

After much deliberation and finally not being able to handle complaints from clients, I've decided to replace tubepress with [ link redacted, please do not post links in the reviews section ] and couldn't be more delighted. It's a far more flexible, solid, and responsive solution.
Thanks for the early service, Tubepress, but it's definitely time to say goodbye.
