A few pre-purchase questions…

1) Can I place a set of video thumbs on a page via shortcode? If so, will the plugin adjust to the container of the page (in other words, if I add it to sidebar, will it adjust to that width, if I add to main post content section, to that width etc)?

2) To create a grid of thumbs as per the above (1), can I just create a group of youtube videos?

3) Is a group just a list of youtube video URLs that I can pick and add to a group I create?

4) Most important: Will your plugin strip out youtube annotations, cards, titles, related video etc. In other words, if I just want the video with controls and nothing else, can this be done?

5) If 4 is possible, can these options to remove said content be set globally in the plugins admin area so I can set what I don’t want for “any” video I add, or group of videos?

Thank you

Hello tman47,

Thank you for your interest in Yottie!

As regards your questions:

1. Yottie generates a shortcode that can be used in the same way as any other WordPress shortcode. You can use it to place a set of video thumbs in a sidebar or in the content area of any webpage or blog. It will automatically adjust its size to the size of the container or page area you place it in.

2. Yes, to create a grid of thumbs, you need to create a new source group and list YouTube sources (YouTube channel, playlist or specific video URLs) there.

3. Yes, you can create your own group of videos by adding their URLs to the source field, but you should keep in mind that the more sources you have, the longer it will take for the plugin to load. For higher loading speed we recommend to use fewer sources, or group the videos you need into a playlist, and use this playlist as the source.

4. Yottie uses the native YouTube player that shows these things, and we don’t influence its behavior. You’re welcome to test your use-case in our online demo at https://elfsight.com/youtube-channel-plugin-yottie/wordpress/#demo

5. This also depends upon the behavior of the YouTube player.

I love your instagram plugin, any chance of having this display in a unique masonry grid or some sort of unique grid layouts in the future?
