Youtube Channel Gallery. Demo with playlist

This demo shows how to use the plugin to display a playlist. Like other examples, I have also customized the CSS to show a different possibility:

.ytctitle {margin-bottom: 0;}
.ytctitle a{color:#FF2B06}
.ytc-row {border-bottom:3px solid #FF2B06; margin-bottom:10px}

The used shortcode is the following:

[Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PL8F1A9C6916AFC872" videowidth="580" ratio="16x9" theme="light" color="white" autoplay="0" rel="0" showinfo="0" maxitems="16" thumbwidth="277" thumbratio="16x9" thumbcolumns="2" title="1" description="0" thumbnail_alignment="top" descriptionwordsnumber="6" link="1"]

      I fixed this problem, but this blogging script seems to not allowing put code. I tryied twice to attache here the code and nothing…

      • Oscar says:

        Last attempt: with &lt &gt
        $content .= ‘&ltiframe id=”ytcplayer’ . $plugincount . ‘” class=”ytcplayer” allowfullscreen src=”‘ . $youtube_url . ‘/embed/’ . (($ytchag_feed == ‘playlist’)? ‘videoseries?list=’.$ytchag_user.’&’: ”) . ‘version=3′ . $ytchag_theme . $ytchag_color . $ytchag_autoplay. $ytchag_modestbranding . $ytchag_rel . $ytchag_showinfo .’&enablejsapi=1&wmode=transparent” frameborder=”0″&gt&lt/iframe&gt’;

    • Oscar says:

      changing some content at “youtube-channel-gallery/templates/player.php”:

      /* OLD $content /
      $content .= ”;

      /* CHANGE: NEW $content */
      $content .= ”;

    • Oscar says:

      I’ll try scaping all quotations with \
      $content .= \’\';

  9. Hi,

    I have an issue with your plugin, its redirecting the page to youtube page rather playing the video in the page, will you kindly check and let me know what is the issue happening. Video page link:


  10. Hi there! Cool plugin. It works well on a page on my site. [ ] but I can’t get the player to work on my home page.

  11. Spyderwoman says:

  15. James Wilkinson says:

    I am using WP 3.8.1 and your plug-in version 1.8.6 and adjusting settings for each playlist set of videos via the Widget area. My issue is that the main video – though I’ve set thumbnails to be 640px wide – is not resizing, nor are the 2 columns of thumbnails below it. I am not using any shortcode – just calling to the sidebar for each playlist I have created.

  16. Kazuto says:

    I used the shortcode above but it does not work for me.

    I can’t resize the player and the thumbnails are not even showing up.

  17. Hi, I’m having the same problem as some of the guys have here. When I click on the thumbnails, they open in youtube instead of the player itself. Here’s the link :

    What’s my javascript problem?

  18. jesus says:

    Hi i find the way to play all the playlist in the plugin

    Enter in plugins and find the “youtube channel gallery” click on edit

    Then you will see on the right side the name of the files and click on youtube-channel-gallery/templates/player.php

    Find this sentence

    $content .= ”;


    change it for this sentence

    $content .= ”;

    After the change click on “refresh file” and now you can play all the videos of your playlists.

    Note: after this change the plugin only works with playlists

  19. Javier says:

    This plugin no longer works in “playlist”.

    Do a search of:
    “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in youtube-channel-gallery.php on line 622″

    and you’ll see lots of websites with the same error.

    How can we fix it?

    Thank you

  20. aleksei_ua says:

    This plugin no works in “playlist”.
    How can we fix it?
    Thank you

  21. Hi,
    Love the plugin!
    How do I get rid of the “Show more videos” text that links directly to my YouTube playlist?


  22. How to make the plugin have pagination? limit the number showing in the first page, and then the other video will be on the next page. Not just linking to youtube channel when clicking link on the bottom.
    Could this going to happen?

  23. Youtube Channel Gallery not support phone to play thumbnails but if we play on first video, everything is ok

    please hellp

  24. Kelly says:

    Any solution, or existing documentation that will help me/us solve the “play next item in playlist” issues? I’d like the playlist to playthrough, go from one to the next, but currently it seems only the first one, or the one selected actually plays.

    This is a good start on a great plugin.

  25. Alenka says:

    Hi! Is there any support here?
    I managed to get the playlist to work, but it doesn’t refresh (doesn’t add new videos). Pls help!

  26. Peter says:

    Hello i installed the Youtube gallery plugin
    I used the shortcode to place it on a webapge, using wordpress 3.9.1
    it workds great in Chrome
    But In IE it just shows the first video but all the thumbnails are empty, but still clickable

    Is there a way to fix this for IE

  27. george says:

    how do i make the gallery display the most recent videos in my playlist first and in order of when uploaded to youtube?

  28. Josh says:

    Hi – the plugin seems great, but the player doesnt actually appear when selected. The audio starts, and the rest of the playlist is lower to allow for it, but the player seems to be invisible. any ideas?


  29. Vipul says:

    Any update on auto play next video ?? is it possible ??

  30. Joe Cowboy says:

    If you want to get feed=”channel” to work you will need to mod the youtube-channel-gallery.php file in the youtube-channel-gallery plugins folder.

    Find the section called
    // YouTube feed types

    then in the the } else { statement under //links ad this:
    if ( $ytchag_feed == ‘channel’ ) {
    $ytchag_rss_url = $youtube_feed_url . ‘/users/’ . $ytchag_user . ‘/uploads?v=2&max-results=’. $ytchag_maxitems;
    $ytchag_link_url = $youtube_url . ‘/channel/’ . $ytchag_user . ‘/videos’;

    Hope this Helps…
