are there any compatible themes for the plugin ?
The plugin works fine with any theme.
how does the auto posting work? via cron job?
The plugin utilizes scheduling functional and WordPress cron.
Thanks.. anyways it doesn’t show from your screenshots, so does the script also pull the youtube video description and post it as well?
Right now, there is no functional to publish video description. But we will consider adding this option. Thank you for your suggestion.
Just wanted to let you know we have released a new version, and the suggested feature was added there.
Is it possible to post videos from a specific users channel?
Right now, there is no such option to post videos from a specific user’s channel. But we will consider adding it, thank you for the suggestion.
So, let me see if I get this right:
I have a YouTube channel. Let’s say I’m editing my videos in my YouTube Channel admin & decide to tag 10 of my own YouTube videos – each with “asdf1234jkl;7890!!!@##” (or something highly unique). Then I go to my WordPress dashboard & make a new category in my blog posts labeled “Awesomeness”. Then I set the RobotBlogger Video Publisher WordPress Plugin to post 10 post everyday & set the input tag “asdf1234jkl;7890!!!@##” & check the category “Awesomeness”. Will all of the 10 YouTube videos with the “asdf1234jkl;7890!!!@##” tag be pulled into my blog posts automatically?
Yes, that is right. However, that is not an easy workaround. We will consider adding an option to post videos from a specific user’s channel. Thank you for your question.
Can I auto publish youtube playlist? Does it automatically pull the thumbnail for the video?
You can auto publish videos from a specified YouTube channel. The plugin pulls video meta data (description) automatically if this option is selected in the settings.
How soon after I have created a project will I see the videoes in the manage post tab?
Ah, I misunderstood the keywords. I set up three keywords and they were all included in the search instead of seperate searches.
Ok, if you have any other questions / concerns / suggestions, please let us know.
Why after I create a project, it say project not started in the Manage Projects area.
This could happen in case you changed the Start Date for the project to a later time/date. Please confirm this is the case.
This is when I add a new project
Right, when you create a new project, the Start Date is set to the current time/date by default. Have you modified it? If you have set it to a later time/date, the project will show as “Not Started” until that time/date.
Ok so when I start a project with the current time and date, now it say In progress under Manage Projects but shows no post under Manage Posts
If you could send us your WordPress details at email@example.com, we will check your projects to make sure they are setup properly.
It seem to be working now. Thanks
I want to purchase this great plug-in, but I have a very important question.
I’m running a WP with 20 TV Channels Post at the Front Page, I need to keep this 20 Latest Post always at the Front Page. Can you modify the Plug-In so when I publish Videos, in stead of getting Today Date, Make all videos to have an old date, so this way no videos will replace all my 20 Post from the Front Page.
The only way to keep this 20 Post at the front page, we need to configure the Plug-In with an Old Published Date, It can be setup to a static date, it don’t matter to me.
If you got my point let me know.
Note: I removed Post Date fron all Post, visitors will not now when the Videos was posted.
Hello, thank you for your interest. The plugin lets you set the start and end date for the project, and it works fine with the past dates too. So, for example, you can set the Start date to last month, and the posts will be dated from last month. So I think it would fit your purpose well.
DO you support playlists ? This is essential for me.
Hello, could you please confirm what exactly are you interested in? What functional would you need related to YouTube playlists?
Thank you for the details. We are working on the new version of Video Publisher, and we will add ability to post videos from playlists there. It should be released in the next few days, I will keep you informed.
Great, I am looking forward to it. The one I linked to seems to not work well after 140 or so videos from 20 playlists.
Just wanted to follow up to let you know we have released a new version of the Video Publisher, which lets you import videos from a playlist.
On demo video doesn’t show up on android or iPad (blank space). Is there a actually link that shows video posts?
Thank you for reporting this. We will check further to make sure the videos are displayed properly on different platforms.
is this plugin responsive?
No, actually you select the size of the video, and we define width and height for it. But we will consider making it responsive as long as it doesn’t cause any display problems.
I set up autoblog 24 hours ago and still nothing has posted. It just says “in progress”. Can you explain what am I failing to do right now?
Please make sure the Start Date of the project is not a future date (otherwise the project will start posting at that date only). Please send us your WP access details to firstname.lastname@example.org so we could check if the project was setup correctly. Regards
How can I get video to show in shortcode rather than <iframe>? My theme doesn’t show iframes.
Here’s my shortcode:
[video type=”youtube” video_id=” ” width=”100%” height=”375px”]
We might add options for the user to select how he wants to publish videos (through iframe or something else) when creating a project. It would be good if you send us more information about how you would like it to function to email@example.com.
First off hello and thank you for taking the time to review my Inquiry I recently purchased your plug-in on my site www.Ratchetornot.com installed fine and works great however I’m experiencing a couple of issues with the plug-in. First issue an major issue is auto posted videos are not displaying on mobile smartphone / tablet devices . Seconded issues / question can the plugin fetch the video thumbnail and place it as the featured image for the post
Example View on mobile http://www.ratchetornot.com/Video/2013/12/01/fight-video-black-crip-with-beads-knockout-punches-bald-black-thug-easily/
Hello, and thank you for using the Video Publisher plugin. For the first reported issue, we are investigating it and looking for a solution. For the other one, we will consider adding this functional in the next version of the plugin. Thank you again for contacting us, and we will keep you updated on the progress.
We have just released a new version of the Video Publisher. We’ve modified the script to display videos properly on Android and iOS (previously, they showed fine if Flash Player was turned on in the mobile browser). We have also added an option to add video thumbnail as a featured image to the post.
Please Help Site has Gone Blank Since Updating this plugin. I’ve had to delete this plugin from my site to get it back online
Hello, Could you please send us your website details to firstname.lastname@example.org so we could check the issue? The update went fine in our tests. Regards
We have checked your site, and see the Video Publisher v1.0.3 is activated there. The logs do not show your site has been ever upgraded to Video Publisher v1.0.4. We have updated the Video Publisher on your site now, and it works just fine.
I’ve just bought your plugin… congrats it’s very useful.
But I have a porblem…
I want the autopublish the videos just from now on from a specific channel, but it autopublishes even from 1 year old videos.
Also the project start day is set as today.
How can I fix it?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for using the RobotBlogger plugin.
The Video Publisher is designed to pull all of the videos as per the specified keyword, or from a specific channel or playlist. So, it is pulling the videos regardless from their post date. If you would like to pull the videos from a specified date only, we will consider adding this option in the coming version of the plugin.
Thank you very much,
I need to publish only the latest videos uploaded to publish.
I mean the videos uploaded to Youtube after the project start date and also not to autopublish the same video again.
When pulling videos, the script checks so that it doesn’t post duplicate videos. Did you have the same video posted twice? If so, please could you send us more detail on this so we could verify it?
I made a mistake I think, I had same posts twice but now it works well.
Do you know any updates about the video timing I mentioned above?
I would like to publish only the newest videos of a specific Youtube channel.
for example, every day it should check and it should publish if 1,2,3 or more videos uploaded in that day.
Is it possbile?
The discussed feature is ready. It is not yet available on CC, but if you drop us an email at email@example.com, we will send it to you.
I’ve just dropped an e-mail now…. thank you.
I’ve deleted and uploaded the new version.
I have two problems…
1) I cannot save the project. I created a project but it does not save and dont show up in the manage projects section.
2) In the video section it is written “Import Videos Posted on YouTube From Selected Date”.
Do I have to change the date every day for a new control?
Can not the plugin do that for me? For example 4 times every 6 hours in a day… and the next day and the day after that?
We have re-checked the plugin, but have not been able to replicate the issue with project not saving. Could you please make a screenshot of your project settings so we can verify on our side?
Or if you could provide access details to your site, we will check there directly.
For the date question, you don’t need to change the date. You only define posting schedule, and the script will check and if the new video is posted on YouTube after the selected date, it will pull it and post as per your defined schedule.
I’ve sent you an e-mail for the project not saving problem.
Responded. Best regards
My problem is still ongoing, so I’m copying my email below…
Are you sure that I dont have to change the video date manually everyday?
“Import Videos Posted on YouTube From Selected Date” is 16 January and the plugin is not working for 2 days!
Now I’ve set the time time for 17 Jan and it published yestarday’s videos…
Do I have to change it every day?
We have re-checked your projects, and they seem to be working correctly.
We’ve checked the corresponding channels on YouTube, and there have been no new video posts added there, thus the projects are not posting on your site. Please confirm.
yesterday a video is published in youtube channel but it is not posted by the project. I think it’s not working
We’ve changed the logics of the script to better handle “Post from Date” option. I will send you the updated plugin to your email.
ok thank you very much, I’m waiting for your e-mail.
