Pre-sale question – Can this plugin be used with Videos in Revolution Slider?

Hi – It works with embedded videos and / or allows you to embed a gallery using the media manager.

I doubt it will work with a slider.

Revolution slider allows you to embed videos in the slider (youtube/vimeo) and then it has additional attributes available like – ID, classes, title and rel. I’ve been able to use WP Video Lightbox with Revolution slider but I would like to use yours for the social sharing features. Does anyone on your team have knowledge about the Revolution Slider? It’s a very popular slider. Thanks for your help.

It works as per the examples. Cheers.

Also, there isn’t a “team” it’s just me

Hi man! Can you tell me how to fix this error:

problem posted on your support forums

Dear Dev, http://wordpress.desert-greening.com/medien/videos/

The lightbox shows the same video on different links. And the Plugin button does not work in VC

Thank you for a soon help.

Screenshots:http://awesomescreenshot.com/0b737×6v27 and http://awesomescreenshot.com/08f37x9i16

Also, I adjusted the size of the preview image to 100%. But now on my frontpage an youtube iframe also expands and is to big.

How to affect only specific widths? Just the width on the video page.

Thank you.

You may have been flagged as SPAM I’ll check

yep you were classed as a spammer by Askimet, I’ve released and will reply on the forum when home

ok, thank you.

when I add video all is fine, and I get the video title from youtube, but on the description i get the word “true” , what does it mean ?

Hi, is there a description on the youtube video?

hi! just bought the plugin! It looks great, and is something I would really like to have. Unfortunately it doesn’t seems to work for me. Im using a plugin for rss feeds, Wp RSS Aggregator for displaying videos on my site. The plugin uses color box to open videos from youtube and vimeo. The plugin doesn’t seems to replace the lightbox?


Custom posts no, if your videos are embedded by an iframe it should replace them with the social lightbox.

If it doesn’t then it’s something caused by how you’ve input them onto your page.

I do put them onto the normal post page by using a short code. they are inside an if iframe though.. Hope i didn’t waist my 33$ on this :p Its a great lug in though really really wanna use it.

Do you wanna take a look at the page and see if you can spot something? It’s skateflix.se. I did open a question regarding this in the support forum, if you wanna take it over there. Regards, Jerry

I’ve had a look, it’s how your shortcode is placing them on a page, it’s placing them with a link with a class and the href of the link is your iframe URL

Support on the forum yes, however I’m afraid this is outside of support as you’ll need to have the plugin modified to work for your site.

Send me an email (via the contact form) I’ll reply on the forum too.

Heres a bug (i think?) when you click like, the like form is wider then the comment window. I can’t change this with css, so os this controlled i your source code, or is that something you change inside your own Facebook app you create to get an id? Screenshot: http://imgur.com/0fGmpdF

Drop me an email about the reload. We did similar for jig and his load more


Hi! Mike, I did get the reload working. The custom code you did targeted and removed the a class, and the next post loaded, didn’t have the a tag because it was removed, and therefor couldn’t be targeted. But I eventually solved it. But, I still wonder about the like button, this seems to be a bug where you have it on your site on the examples aswell where the form cuts of. Try pressing the like button and you’ll see. I can’t seem to change, or hide, this with css either. You have any solutions for this?

I know. I’ve seen it. I’ll hide it in the next update

Pre Sale Question. Hi I really like the look of the plugin but I noticed it hasn’t been updated for a while. Does it work on wordpress 4.? Also do you know if it conflicts with any other plugins? Is this standalone or do you have to have any of the other social gallery stuff? Thanks Stu

Is it responsive? I tried by resizing and in dev emulator and it seems you loose the video but keep the comment area.

any issues with wpengine?

Hi – it’s built for desktops, we are looking into a mobile add on, and none I’m aware of (wpengine)

does this plugin feature a video player that makes your videos more compatible with mobile devices?


Sadly, it’s built for desktops, but we’ll look into a mobile add-on in the future. You can subscribe to our newsletter for the latest news on our products: http://epicplugins.com/newsletter/

Have a good day.

Im wondering if it works with themepunch essential grid, if i click on a video there and it opens up in lightbox / Social Gallery WordPress Video Viewer?


I’m not sure of that. Let me check with Mike (our lead developer) and get back to you.

Have a good day.


Yes, it works with Essential Grid. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Have a good day.

Pre Purchase. I would like to know if I can install this plugin on User Specific page ie I’m using UserPro Plugin, can I insert Social Gallery WordPress Video Viewer Plugin in User’s profiles so that individual user can upload and share their videos (youtube ) ?

Thanks, Hawkins


Thank you for your interest in Epic Plugins. They can access the backend of the plugin only if they have authoring capabilities (which is handled by WordPress). Let me know if you have any other questions before buying a license.

Have a good day.

Is compatible with essential grid?

Hi – the Photo Viewer is. The Video Viewer is independent (good for embedded videos for example)

Hi !

Looking really nice,

I would need neeed to know two things before to buy it …

Are the Video responsive ? If i go to video n my mobile, it’s not at all. Does it work with only embed video from youtube ? or Vimeo/Dailymotion/ self Hosted also ?

Thank you for your time, looking towards to hear from you fast :)


Sadly no, it isn’t responsive. But it’s on our update list. As for videos, your two options are Vimeo or YouTube. At least currently.

Have a good day.

Hi – when do you plan to release a new updated version? Thanks


Is there a specific feature or bug fix you’re anticipating?

Hello, I bought yesterday this plugin and it doesn´t work on my website, I wrote you through email, through the support website and the only solution that you give me is to put the youtube video code directly on the page but then this is not a video gallery, I can´t do it manually, the plugin is called social “gallery” video viewer, please I need a solution because otherwise I don´t need the plugin.

Hi – support isn’t dealt with on CodeCanyon comments.

I’m sure your email / forum thread will be answered shortly

Pre-purchase question: I am currently using Social Gallery Lite. Will Social Gallery Video work with Social Gallery Lite, or even by itself, or does one have to buy Social Gallery Pro in order to buy Social Gallery Video?

Thanks in advance! Mike

Replied via email

Do I have to purchase the Gallery in order to use this plugin?

I believe they can be used independent, but I am confirming with the developer. I will update this when he responds.

I talked with the developer, and Gallery is not needed to use Video portion. If you are having issues please feel free to post over at the support forum here: http://epicplugins.com/help/

!! The support forum is not working with me. I tried to post twice but I couldn’t!!!

So, I’m posting my issue here:

I’m having a problem with SG videos. I’m using it independently without Social Gallery Image. So, I went and create a post, following the direction shown in the video, and tried to add a YouTube video to the post using SG-Video plugin. Here is the image I’m getting, which shows no title or description:


I tried then to click “Insert to Post”, but it only copied this code:

[SGVYT ids =’qA_uahPdtlE’ types = ‘yt’ title = ‘undefined’ desc = ‘undefined’]

My error_log file is filled with errors (almost 40MB) during couple hours only from activating the plugin:

in /home1/xxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sgvideo/SGvideo.php on line 862

[10-Sep-2015 19:58:29 UTC] PHP Warning: DOMDocument::load(): I/O warning : failed to load external entity “http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/1oJRzVqUBjI” in /home1/xxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sgvideo/SGvideo.php on line 862

Can you please help me with that?

Info about my site: I’m using Jarida Theme, with the following plugins:

Above The Fold Optimization,Akismet,Autoptimize,English WordPress Admin,Envato WordPress Toolkit,Select Google Ads Master,Google Ads Master,Google Webfont Optimizer,Jetpack by WordPress.com,SB-RSS_feed-plus,Social Gallery Video,UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore,W3 Total Cache,WEN Featured Image,WordPress Importer,WP Smush,Yoast SEO

You might have a conflict between your theme or another plugin and social gallery. As a test, try installing it into a clean install of Word Press using the twenty fifteen theme and see if you still get the errors.

What was changed mobile friendly yet?

Put a topic up Social Gallery Video not working seems like it is on the old youtube v2 api

Hello, 2 questions 1) will this lightbox plugin play videos hosted on wistia.com? 2) The essential grid plugin lists “social gallery” as an alternative lightbox, it links to your image gallery page. will your Video gallery work with essential grid? Thanks.

1. We have Vimeo and Youtube support.

2. it does work with galleries, there is no specific support though. here is the documentation on getting galleries setup: http://epicplugins.com/help/doc/social-gallery-video-viewer-plugin/
