Wizards / Automatic Defaults
Whether you're setting parameters and automating site-wide defaults in WordPress

consider. Our tools also include wizards for convenience and greater flexibility than tools like oEmbed. You won't have

A straight-forward dashboard that's quite informative without being complicated and difficult to use. It was designed from
the ground up to answer specific questions that video embedders really want to know, while avoiding information overload.
Find out: How does the view activity on your site compare to other sites like it? How much do the producers of videos you
embed rely on your site for views? Are you embedding videos that have restrictions that you are not aware of? More here »
Deleted Video Alerts
YouTube takes down videos all the time, leaving 'empty embeds' across a vast number of already published pages. Find out
when, so you can avoid the annoying 'This video does not exist' message on your pages and galleries.
Mobile Compatibility Check
More and more visitors are browsing the web using mobile devices. Some YouTube channels, however, block the viewing of their
videos on these devices for different reasons (e.g. preferred desktop ad revenue and user experience). For each standard
YouTube video you embed, you can see if it has restrictions that might limit your site's mobile visitors from viewing it.
Video SEO Tags
Automatically add Google, Bing, and Yahoo friendly markup for a greater chance of showing up in search engine video results.
YouTube Live Stream - Given a link to a YouTube channel, the plugin wizard automatically finds a live stream if one is active in that channel and generates the embed code for you (click here for a tutorial on how to embed a YouTube live stream on WordPress
). On the settings page, you can also set defaults of what to automatically display if a live stream is not active at a given moment. For example, you can have your site display a gallery of a channel's entire video library so that users can have something to watch in the meantime. We hope it's a time saver.
GDPR and EU Cookie Law Friendly Options
Automatically embed with the YouTube no cookie option, restrict the YouTube API, and/or get explicit consent from your users even before a YouTube video loads on your page.
