Embed a Responsive YouTube Playlist and Channel Gallery with our WordPress Plugin

Our YouTube plugin for WordPress » now has responsive playlist and channel gallery support. Simply put, you can display a specific playlist or an entire YouTube channel in elegant ways that differ from the standard YouTube playlist player. Your visitors will be able to browse and select from an always visible "table of contents" of videos, unlike the standard playlist player which hides the listing after a video is selected.

In the free version (and by default), the plugin uses a grid (or tile) layout as illustrated above. Your visitors simply click on a thumbnail and the corresponding video will begin to play.

In the plugin's settings page, you are able to change certain defaults like the amount of thumbnails to show per page and the number of columns (see image below). The plugin is responsive, so the column settings will dynamically change based on screen size. Also, users will be allowed to page through the gallery if there are more videos in the playlist or channel than the thumbnails/page value you provide.

Note: More options than shown above may be found in the actual plugin settings page.

Go PRO and get more gallery customizations options » . For example, we provide a vertical (single column) and horizontal (single row) list style as alternatives to the grid, with more designs coming. These current alternatives were inspired by the standard YouTube playlist player's "table of contents," except our gallery's video lists are always visible and shown under the playing video. Here's an example:

PRO users can now also differentiate galleries by showing different thumbnail shapes. We currently offer rectangle and circle options.

New: PRO users now have the option to hide the video player of a gallery so that it is only displayed once a thumbnail is clicked. That is, instead of the player always being on top of the thumbnails as shown in the pictures above, the player will begin playing in a lightbox/popup. The two images below show this process.
