Precise, does what it needs to
By , for WP 4.0.1

An excellent plugin that dosen't do anything else than it should!
There's room for slight improvements though

  • Sadly, it isn't very responsive-friendly. Video previews in the widget area dosen't scale down very well, according to my very brief tests.
  • The Youtube-logo could be scaled down when the preview is small

Besides that it's simple and works very well, love how the videos appear in a lightbox instead of linking.

Great plugin with a simple interface!

Hye everyone,

For almost more than 2 years i using this plugin & today i would like to express my support by write this review.

Why i luv this plugin, because it just a simple interface without any fancy interface make it it's look a like Youtube. Of course we share Youtube content:) Although you keep updating your plugin version but still keep maintain on feel & look. That's great!

My requirement only to get a video thumbnail & video tittle ..that's all as you can see from here - [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]

Kudos to developer!

great plugin, but something is wrong with it.
It pulls the other widgets up when I put it on the top of the sidebar.

I am 100% sure that happens because of this widget

Works great!
