  1. We too are having the same issue with the problem and videos showing on our feed. Really don’t want to have to find a new plug-in, but am going to have to if there isn’t an update soon…just makes our site look back.
    Any idea when this will be released or what we can do in the meantime?

    Now None of Videos from YouTube Channel are showing in the Feed.
    it shows only Device problem support video.

    YouTube no longer supports their old API. Have you planned to upgrade your plug-in to the new API?

  4. Bjorn says:

    Same here unfortunately. I hope you can update without too much of a hassle.

    Great plugin, cheers :)

  5. I am also having the same problem because of the YouTube updates. Any idea when a fix is coming out for this?

    I notice the last post from Poselabs was jan 2013. Do they still exist? Is it possible somebody else can take over if Poselabs doesn’t or can’t do the work necessary to keep this very valuable pluggin alive.

  10. Guys, Even I faced problems of similar kind. However the plugin works if we are using the playlist option under Feeb Tab instead of a User.

    Try this it works. Please see the website right bar.

    Thank you,
