Great plugin with Requirement Issues
By , for WP 4.1.1

I would rate this plug with 5 stars except that it nags you on every screen in the dashboard that it requires PHP 5.3.29.

RHEL 6 variant Linux distros at time of writing this are at PHP 5.3.3. If you look at the number of WordPress installations on RedHat, Fedora and CentOS, this impacts a significant number of installs, particularly in shared hosting environments.

Are there really features of this plugin which require 5.3.29 or could the PHP version check be modified to simply check for 5.3?

At very least, the warning message should be something that can be dismissed and limited to the limited so that it only appears on its own Setup screen and possibly the plugin screen.

As a general design principle, I would argue that a plugin should not have stricter system requirements than the most recent version of the core engine that it lives inside (in this case WordPress 4.1.1).

Nice plugin, easy to set up, looks great on my site but I can't recommend it to clients.

Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.1

How hard is it to add a youtube channel, where the videos have thumbnails and open in a lightbox? Surprisingly hard..... out of a bunch of plugins I tried, this one did a great job (and it's current!).

My only gripe, I would love the option to disable the lightbox though, so I could use a different one.

Excellent plugin!

This is an outstanding plugin that is easy to set up and use. It is very customizable, and we particularly appreciate the ongoing openness of the developer to consider new ideas, provide technical support, and include fixes in frequent updated versions.

Useless
By , for WP 3.5.2

It is not refreshing for many hours. For somebody who have news site, it is simply useless. Beside, support doesn't exist. Two stars only.

Incorrect Video Channel Loads To My Plug-In
By , for WP 3.5.1

My plug-in loads perfectly...however, the problem is it keeps defaulting to this video (and won't show mine):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&list=PLEC850BE962234400&v=t7cpEKPQIxc

Why?

I have my url in to my YouTube channel.

Please advise. Thanks.
