How can I add videos to pages, when page is selected in create the post I don’t see any option to select an excisting page, only see categories.

Yes. A new post is created for each video imported. If you wish to do something custom, like add to an existing post, you can use the filter ‘vb_create_the_post’ to hook in your code changes. See the Documentation section ‘Filter Hooks’ for ideas.

Ok but I only want to show the imported videos on a specific page which I’ve created, should I be messing around with filters, in the “and post type” pull down menu I’ve selected page in stead of post but there is now option to selct on which page?

Yes, ‘Create the Posts’ is to create a new post. To import a video to an existing post, you’d need to use the filter and your code.

hello friend, this plugin is compatible with wowza?

If wowza can display the embeds on your WordPress site, then it will work just fine.

hi can you add video caption and subtitles in different language ?

Unfortunately, YouTube requires user authorization to download captions so they are not available through the public API via an api key. :(

The cron jobs are eating up my server CPU 79% but I only have the query set in the Scheduler every 6 hours and the utility for every 24 hours. I have 6 feeds set to fetch between 1 and 5 videos each.

When I check my Cpanel, I can see that the crons run every minute, thereby overloading the server.

How can I fix this issue?



WordPress can have trouble with launching cron jobs on servers with high traffic and/or low resources. Take a look at the docs, FAQ #2, “Can I turn off WP-Cron and use server cron jobs instead?”

I think this is a bug. I installed today and the videos returned are 90% blacklisted and the balance of the videos have nothing to do with the keyphrase. Keyphrase is skincare (and I also tried “skin care”) but videos are random, like about the movie Cars and Trump’s 2005 tax returns – totally irrelevant. Can this be fixed?

Thanks, Nancy

Hello. The videos are returned by (I assume you are using) YouTube, so I’m guessing there is something else set besides just the search term. Send me a PM (or use the support button on the plugin page) with your query page details and I can help you figure this out asap.

hi i cannot seem to load the demo page? just stays blank

What demo page? Can you be more specific?

does the user has to be be logged into spotify or have spotify account to play the playlist on my site?

Is your playlist public or private?

Hi John, are you still supporting Video Blogster Pro WP plugin? Does it still work with the Youtube API? Will you be providing updates for it moving forward? -thank you

Yes for all 3 questions. :)

Hi, I changed my theme from Truemag to Bimber. However, I can’t find all YouTube videos on the post page after switching to the new theme, and unfortunately, I have deleted my video feeds. How do I make all these YouTube videos to appear on the post page?

TrueMag uses custom meta fields for the video and Bimber does not, so when you switched themes Bimber does not know how to display the TrueMag video field.

With the video feeds, we could just switch the posts over. Without them, you can still run a code snippet to copy the TrueMag custom meta field ‘tm_video_url’ into the post content so Bimber will display it.

I’m quite relieved. Could you help with the code snippet?

You don’t currently have support, but if you PM me I could get you started.

Hello. I updated/switched my theme from videoTube to the Newspaper theme. How do I get the videos to show? How do I get the new theme’s custom meta fields updated?

Step 1. Go to each video feed and in the ‘Process the Results’ tab check the ‘Re-check theme for custom meta fields?’ at the bottom and click save. This should detect the custom meta fields for the current theme (Newspaper) and save those for the feed. Step 2. On the same feed in the ‘Process the Results’ tab, now check ‘Apply changes to existing videos?’ and click save. For each video imported on that feed, those changes will now be applied. PM me if you need further help.

It worked like a charm. Thanks for the prompt response. Two thumbs up

Does this work with the newspaper magazine theme?

Yes it will fill in the custom meta fields used by Newspaper automatically.

Can the plugin… Scrape Video Transcripts to Build Content Rich Posts ?

The plugin uses a customizable template to build the post content from whatever you wish to use – video description, duration, likes, rating, etc.

Even the Video Transcripts?

Currently no, video captions will be included in the next update.

Hi, looking to buy your plugin. Is there a maximum number of feeds you can create…assuming I wanted to create unlimited feed for users (say all students channels in my college)? And can I easily integrate a search function to filter their names? Thank you in advance.

You can make an unlimited number of feeds. You can simply add them by channel or search for author name/topic, etc. Anything that is supported by YouTube API.

do you any demo for Mixcloud?

Currently no demo for Mixcloud, sorry.

Hi just purchased, is there anyway to make it go back one and download an older video if there’s no new ones?

Hmm, you can either increase the number of videos to import, or set the ‘published after date’ to the date of the oldest video imported.

I’ll see if I can make this automatic on the client end to make it easier to do what you want.

Hello I would like to know if this plugin can be used to upload youtube video comments as a singular options. I am not looking to have the videos added but just the comments of all my youtube videos, can this app help.

No sorry this plugin is for importing videos, statistics and comments.

Hello, I ask this question because I do not know. If wrong, do not laugh. I took video, music … about my website. If the video, music copyrighted, my website has a problem? Thank you

If you embed from another site, the video owner has already given permission to use their video. If the video owner is using it against copyright, the site would remove the video once a copyright claim comes in from the copyright holder, making your embed obsolete automatically. Your website is not the one with the problem in those cases.

OK, that’s good. thank you. After each video will generally suggest next video and source site. Is there a way not to show? Thank you

Yes you can tell the video player what to show, depending on the site. Check out FAQ #7 in the documentation for examples.

hello how are you .i want buy this plugin . i have question . you tube and daily motion post have enlarge screen option .

Your site uses a video player that is not showing those options. Either enable it or use the default YouTube/DailyMotion video players instead.

Video Blogster can use whatever video player you have, or the default video players provided from each video site.
