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:

    border-bottom: 3px solid #ff2b06;
    margin-bottom: 15px;
    color: #ff2b06;
    overflow: hidden;
.ytc-thumbnails .ytc-row{
    border-bottom: 3px solid #ff2b06;
    margin-bottom: 25px!important;
    color: #ff2b06;

The used shortcode is the following:

[Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PL454A0274C1223C90" key="your_Google_API_key" maxitems="16" thumb_columns_ld="2" title="1"]

    videos dosen’t play on the page and link to youtube. How to fix?

  3. Venkatesh says:

    While clicking on the video it takes me to the youtube instead of playing it on the site.

  4. Umiki Zatoichi says:

    Is it possible to have a function to play the next video on the playlist? I believe this could be very useful in many circumstances. Thank you for the great plugin!

  5. Arnold Buhmann says:

    I can’t seem to make the playlist work at all.. !
    Channel works fine..
    does anyone have an example of a working playlist ??



  6. William says:

    When I try to add a playlist using feed=”my_playlist_id”, the plugin crashes the entire page. If I remove the feed=”my_playlist_id” tag, it works fine.

    • William says:

      I figured it out, I just realized I needed to leave feed=”playlist” and change my user to the playlist ID. Amazing what you can do when you step back and look again.

  8. thanks for your support it works what a awesome plugin.

  9. hai,
    thanks for your previous support. I likes your plugin so i am trying to figure out the problem. Once again i am getting another type of error message will you please support me

    Here is the error details:-
    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/thegurkhavoice/public_html/wp-content/plugins/youtube-channel-gallery/youtube-channel-gallery.php:1) in /home/thegurkhavoice/public_html/wp-login.php on line 425

  10. Hi,
    Will you please help me i got a problem on this plugin.
    First time when i install this plugin it work fine. After one day i got a error massage like the quota exceed. and i follow the faq. and change my api key ‘ytchag_key’ => ‘AIzaSyCkBzhVQwaelo-lifc1G3oVPKKX3UW3RLo’ in youtube-channel-gallery.php ,. after that i update the plugin. Again i got new error message like Error type: “Bad Request”. Error message: “Bad Request” Domain: “usageLimits”. Reason: “keyInvalid”.

    i have used this shortcode [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PL3eUpQWN-K2vD3jUhYk_iPQFIovZq8hzb" videowidth="1080" ratio="16x9" theme="light" color="white" autoplay="1" rel="0" showinfo="0" maxitems="500" thumb_width="277" thumb_ratio="16x9" thumb_columns_ld="4" title="1" description="0" promotion="0" pagination_show="0" description_words_number="6" link="0" thumb_order="1"]

    Hope i got the response ASAP

    • PoseLab says:


      Your shortcode should be:
      [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PL3eUpQWN-K2vD3jUhYk_iPQFIovZq8hzb" key="AIzaSyCkBzhVQwaelo-lifc1G3oVPKKX3UW3RLo" theme="light" color="white" autoplay="1" maxitems="50" thumb_width="277" thumb_columns_ld="4" title="1" promotion="0" pagination_show="0" link="0" thumb_order="1"]

      Take into account that Youtube does not allow to show more than 50 thumbnail in the same page. I can not view if your API key works because it has a referral to limit by ip or url. If you have problems with that API key, delete it and create a new one following these tutorials.

    Error type: “Forbidden”. Error message: “Daily Limit Exceeded” Domain: “usageLimits”. Reason: “dailyLimitExceeded”. Location type: “”. Location: “”.

    Check in YouTube if the id PL8xoHzhhUbPNLFkFD_lg49dAjzDxpkEH3 belongs to a playlist. Check the FAQ of the plugin or send error messages to support.

    often this error came some time view the videos in correctly then after this error message came

  12. Marcel says:

    Removal of thumbnail_alignment=”top” showed the thumbnails again.

  14. Danny says:

    Problems on my site too using latest WP version.

    Tried the shortcode [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PLL0fOoZ8DvxHMBIZg6MZtVUBAgW5CPkp3" feedorder="asc" videowidth="500" ratio="16x9" theme="light" color="white" quality="small" autoplay="1" rel="1" showinfo="1" maxitems="50" thumbwidth="200" thumbratio="16x9" thumbcolumns="1" title="1" description="1" thumbnail_alignment="left" descriptionwordsnumber="10" link_window="0" player="0"]

    nothing being displayed.

    tried [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PLL0fOoZ8DvxHMBIZg6MZtVUBAgW5CPkp3" maxitems="16" thumb_columns_phones="2" thumb_columns_tablets="4"]

    displays but only the player.

  15. Mario says:

    Yep, no go on my site either, tried a few tweaks and went with minimal shortcode but nada.

  16. JP says:

    Hi there, can you please assist. instead of playing at the top of the page – it’s opening a new page and playing on youtube website.

  17. I am using the shortcode and styles (modified) at the top of this page. The problem is that putting more than one shortcode on the same page, all the videos run at the head of the first group / shortcode.
    Thanks a lot in advance. Jorge.

    PD: The URL is a test space.

  18. gearcraft says:

    awesome plugin.. when it worked! :P.. right now the thumbnails don’t appear with this code..i applied the css as well. i tried all .. thumbnails dont work no more.. plz fix plz :)


  19. Lubos says:

    Hi there,

    I have used this plugin for a year and it was working perfect, but now I got this error message:

    Message from server: Gone. Check in YouTube if the id PL6QR_N_mcZs5JA_vFboDnlX_ufClfrDbS belongs to a playlist. To locate the id of your playlist check the FAQ of the plugin.

    I don’t know, what happened. The shortcode is still the same and I have already tried to use the same shortcode as I shown in this demo and I got the same error message.

    Can somebody help me to fix this problem?


    • Adam says:

      I’m also having this issue today. Whats strange is the demo above works fine but if I place their shortcode on my site it does not work. I wonder if YouTube has changed something and this page is showing a cached version. If I find the solution I will follow up.

    • Andrew says:

      Our’s also stopped working just recently and we have the same error.

    • Andreas says:

      same issue here…

  20. Andreas says:

    Great plugin!

    Is it possible to make the thumbnail columns responsive? So that when the gallery is viewed on a mobile device, the number of columns can be reduced?


  21. Ricky says:

    I am using the short code to add my playlist to a page but it is not filling the full page area. How do I get the main video to be as wide as the area allows (or Fluid?) Here is the code I am using and I am pasting it into the text edit of my page.

    [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PLzgvI-7JkT2M9R8D9BDV8e_WhCyMOBwoX" videowidth="700" ratio="16x9" theme="light" color="white" autoplay="1" rel="1" showinfo="1" maxitems="9" thumbwidth="200" thumbratio="16x9" thumbcolumns="2" title="1" description="1" thumbnail_alignment="top" descriptionwordsnumber="10" link_window="0"]

  22. Adward says:
