Embed Plus for YouTube – Gallery, Channel, Playlist, Live Stream

Embed Plus for YouTube – Gallery, Channel, Playlist, Live Stream

 

A WordPress YouTube embed, YouTube gallery (channel or playlist), and even YouTube Livestream or premiere can be customized in a wide variety of ways.

It focuses on performance with the ability to defer JavaScript while serving minified CSS and JavaScript.

Here are a few recently added features:

  • Defer critical and non-critical JavaScript – improve the initial load time of your pages by allowing this plugin’s critical and non-critical Javascript code to begin execution only after a page is loaded. That reasoning is the basis for the Defer CSS Javascript (styles and code) recommendation you’ll see in various web profiling tools. We plan to allow you to defer critical and non-critical CSS in the near future.
  • Compatible with the WordPress Gutenberg block editor (it also stays backward-compatible with the classic editor). Both the Gutenberg block selector and the Gutenberg classic block will show the YouTube wizard button. For the Gutenberg block selector, click on the (+) sign for the block editor list. The YouTube Wizard block is located under the “Embeds” category (make sure you choose “YouTube Wizard“). See more on how to embed a YouTube video, gallery, or live stream with the WordPress Gutenberg block editor here >> The plugin is also compatible with several popular page builders like Elementor, Beaver Builder, SiteOrigin, and Visual Composer. For these and pretty much any other page builder with a shortcode widget, you can also embed your video, gallery, live stream, or premiere by creating the shortcode in the plugin’s wizard and then embedding the code in the page builder’s shortcode widget or text widget.
  • Privacy and Consent – Improved privacy and GDPR compliance options like YouTube no cookie, YouTube API restrictions, and a customizable GDPR consent message.
  • YouTube gallery capability: channel and playlist – The ability to make playlists and channel embeds have a gallery layout. By default, the plugin can generate a grid-based responsive playlist or channel gallery >>. Your visitors can browse through pages of video thumbnails and choose from videos that are pulled from an entire YouTube channel or playlist.
  • YouTube gallery auto continuous play – embed a playlist or channel gallery and allow it to play one video after the next without requiring viewers to click a thumbnail.
  • YouTube Live Stream – Given a link to a YouTube channel, the plugin wizard automatically finds a Livestream if one is active in that channel and displays the live stream for you. You can embed a direct link to a live stream too.
  • YouTube Premieres – You can also embed premiere videos using the same method we created for live streams.
  • Simultaneous playback control – you can enable/disable the ability for visitors to have separate videos running at the same time on the same page. This also works with YouTube live stream and gallery embeds.
  • Improved accessibility by using title attributes for screen reader support. It should help your site pass functional accessibility evaluations (FAE).
  • Improved ajax theme support
  • Site origin information with each embed code as an extra security measure. In YouTube’s/Google’s own words, checking this option “protects against malicious third-party JavaScript being injected into your page and hijacking control of your YouTube player.” We especially recommend checking it as it adds higher security than the built-in YouTube embedding method that comes with the current version of WordPress (i.e. oembed).
  • Easy “Insert” button for both the Visual and Text mode of the editor (for YouTube gallery and live stream embedding as well)
  • Embed an entire YouTube channel as a (non-gallery, single embedded player) playlist
    Start video settings for playlist embeds. You can now choose to start a playlist with a specific video or have the plugin automatically start with the most recently added video. Note: If you’re embedding a YouTube gallery, the order will be defined by the order of the channel or playlist on YouTube.com
  • Volume level initialization – helpful when autoplay is checked
  • iOS playback preferences
  • Automatic localization/internationalization so you can set the player’s interface language from English to another
  • Instant HTTPS support. It can even convert past non-HTTPS videos to HTTPS. Did you know that Google uses HTTPS/SSL support as a ranking signal for SERP?
  • “At a Glance” direct access to your YouTube posts/pages
  • Shortcode support for embedding multiple videos on one line
  • General playlist embedding support
  • YouTube plugin migration support
