Hey, y’all. Welcome to another WordPress
Wednesday. Thanks for tuning in. If you’re new to our channel, be sure to
subscribe. We have over 200 videos and we produce one of these every single week. It’s all sorts of things all around WordPress (from beginner level to totally some crazy
fun advanced stuff)- all sorts of topics too. Stick around. I hope you enjoy this.
This is just going to be a video. I’ve been telling many of you that you
need to be having videos on your website. Whether you’re using YouTube or Vimeo,
I’ve found an incredible responsive player
that you can put on your website and have them all sit there in kind of a
cool library. Of course, you don’t need this to embed
those videos inside your website. If you’re looking for a really cool
dynamic way to display, (maybe a playlist or a group of videos
together.) Check this out. It’s just $18 over on the Envato
Marketplace so it is a premium plugin that you do have to purchase. Of course, you
have to be on a self hosted version of WordPress. That means you have to be using the .com
version of WordPress. This is the name of it, ‘Video Gallery
WordPress Plugin for YouTube, Vimeo.’ Check this out when it comes to what it
can look like on your Website. This specific style here is the skin_pro. The noskin is the player skin type.
If you’re looking to do this exact layout, these would be your two settings that you
would choose. Of course, if you click play the video’s
going to be right here (easily played on your own website.) As you all know the thing I talk about is,
when a video’s on your website people are staying longer. Google is making sure to time that and
they’re spending more time on your website. That helps your SEO. That’s exactly why you want them to stay
on your website to watch your awesome videos instead of leaving to go over to
YouTube to watch those videos. Keep them on your site. This is one of the things that’ll help
you do that. You guys know me if you’ve been watching
my channel for a long time now. You know that I have a quote that says
“sometimes things are option overload.” I will say that this plugin is just a
little bit intimidating initially. This is what it looks like whenever you go
load it on to your website. This is what I got it to do in just a
matter of minutes. I was able to bring over our YouTube
channel. I imported 25 of our YouTube videos from our
YouTube channel just in a matter of a couple of clicks. It can also bring over the title
dynamically and bring over some of the description. You can change how many
characters it brings over if you want to change that up or just illuminate these
completely and let the player sit here. This was just a couple of changes that I
did. As you get over here and install it,
you’ll have new option on the left side navigation that says Video Gallery. Clicking on that. Thankfully, these developers of this
plugin give us a couple of samples. That get’s you started off really quickly. You’ve got 5 or 6 different samples that
sit here in your dashboard. You can (if you want) just kind of
manipulate those and see how it works on your own website. What I did was just come in here and
choose YouTube User Channel. I went ahead and put in our YouTube user
name. I said how many videos I wanted to bring
over. The max can be 50. It gives you your options that you can
start to scroll through here and see how to make some changes to things. You can just play around with this. Easily just go through each one of these
options. Tinker around and play around. There’s
your social media options. There’s your design options for your colors. There’s
your description options if you want the title brought over and the description
brought over. All sorts of different things that you
just toggle through. Take your time reading through each one
and set the settings. Right away it was actually really simple
user friendly to use. I was a little intimidated myself when I
opened it up. I thought, “good God where do I even start?” Just read through each one. It’s very
simple to use. Here’s the fun thing though, I just went in and grabbed the embed code.
If you click here, this is the one I’m using right now and editing. I can click embed and it pops up this
little model here that allows me to highlight the short code, copy it on to my clipboard and then go over on my page that I want
to post it into. I’m using a test page here for now. You just paste it in there just like a
short code- you paste it in the page. You also have these options here that
you can add in the gallery that way. Click update and that’s what it looks
like. It plays through on your site. Of course, it’s fully responsive. This sits as far wide as your page allows
the content to sit. I have a sidebar running right here on
the right side. This is going to stop right there and
that’s going to also adjust your height. Check this out. As I shrink down the page
(watch how the mobile nav) now my other options for the additional
videos to watch scroll left to right which is pretty spectacular when it comes
to a cell phone or an ipad user experience. Of course, it’s all clickable and playable. How crazy is that y’all? Not bad for an $18 investment. Really. Truly. I was pretty impressed
with it. Again, a little bit of option overload but it’s still pretty cool- pretty fun. If you’re using videos, you definitely
want a way for people to easily navigate those videos on your own website. I
can not stress that enough. Be sure that the reviews are still good on
this. If you’re watching this video later on
down the road, double check that and be sure that you’re
running in a WordPress.com version before you go purchase this. The way you test that out (if you don’t
know if you’re running on a .com) if you’re in your dashboard and you see
‘Appearance- Themes’ and you see ‘Plugins’. This plugins area is typically only
visible if you’re using the .org version of WordPress (which is the self hosted
version of WordPress.) Okay. If your brains are good still, I hope you are going to have a great
WordPress Wednesday. Hope it wasn’t too much to take all in. I so enjoy hearing from y’all so leave me
something in the description box below. Send some comments, holler out, give us a tweet, I’d love to
hear from you. Have a great one. Talk to you soon. Bye bye, y’all.

    Looks really neat and like not having someone else's video queued up next. But I have the two sections you point at the end out so don't think I could use it. Am I correct if you have those two sections it would not work?

    Kori, did you mix up .com and .org? in the beginning you said to be sure you are using the self-hosted ".com" version (1:00) of self hosted wp, then at the end you said the .org version. Self-hosted is .org right? (Great video as usual, btw)

    Hi there! You say to run in WordPress.com version before purchase (5:40) Can you explain to me why? I don't understand this. For as far as I know you cannot install plugins in de .com version. I run WordPress in the .org version. Does this mean I cannot purchase this plugin? Ron from The Netherlands.

    I am curious if you can create galleries from multiple YouTube channels? It is clear you can pick playlists created by other YouTube and put them into galleries.
