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!

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.

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.

Works Mostly - No Support
By , for WP 3.7.1

It appears the developer is more interested in money for the PRO version. And like most developers forget that we try the free version before we decide to spend money. A lack of support is a definite Do Not Buy event.

It's a good idea, rapidly becoming less important with all the other offerings out there, but no support for simple issues (divide by zero error!) - too bad really.

Broken
By , for WP 3.6

Has lots of bugs that prevent it from doing all the functions it is supposed to. So only half of features work, the rest don't.
