1. How to get a YouTube Data API Key?

Please follow get Youtube API instructions.

2. Help! My video gallery doesn’t look right!

First of all, don’t worry! I promise you that we can get it looking right. This can be caused by a multitude of things, so try the following (in the order of appearance):

  • Check your browser’s javascript console to see if there are any errors that may be causing this issue.
  • Make sure that your WordPress theme is not including multiple versions of jQuery and is using the latest version.
  • Try disabling other plugins that are used for photo galleries, minifying scripts, widgets, or otherwise altering your site’s appearance, one by one, and really determine if you need it.

If nothing works, please describe your issue and submit a ticket on our plugin support forum, you should receive a reply within 24 hours (except Sunday).

3. Does the plugin support third-party page builders like “Elementor”, “WPBakery”, “Divi”, etc.?

Yes. Simply, generate your shortcode using the plugin’s “Shortcode Builder” and add it to your favourite page builder.

4. Is the plugin compatible with WordPress Multisite?

Yes, it is. However, do not “network-activate” the plugin. Activate it only on the subsites on which you need the gallery. This can be done under “Plugins => Add New” as the Administrator user.

We have been trying some video plugins also pro versions. This is by far the best and with some awesome Pro features. You are covered in future with integration of YouTube videos on you website. The support is amazing, very skillful and quick Pro response better than you could expect. Highly recommend this video plugin. It’s got all you need.

Really liked the plugin! The Search by Keywords and by Cahnnel Name is really useful! There is only one thing is missing – the Lazy load functionality, i mean the video should load only after a play button is pressed. I should make the player load on demand. this functionality is already implemented in other youtube plugins. In general, really good job!
