Hi, I am having an issue setting up the OAUTH – every time I set it up it gives me a warning saying “You should avoid this app” please help. Thank you.

Hi,

It’s not an issue, if you created the App and using the credentials click “Continue anyway” and give it access to your Youtube account.

It’s a security measure taken by Google to let you know that the app might not be safe but since it’s yours and you are using your account, you’re OK.

Hi. I need this to work with the Reel theme by WPZoom and import YouTube videos in the themes portfolio custom post type fields. Is this possible and how easy to configure?

Hi,

The plugin can be made compatible with almost any theme. Here’s a tutorial that explains how to do this: https://wpythub.com/documentation/tutorials/third-party-compatibility/

in automatic import, ther are only one “Import in category:” and only can select one category. Is posible add a second “import category” or multi select categories? thanks

Hi,

Sorry, no, you can choose only one category to import into.

Hi there,

Youtube is blocked in my country, so I’m just wondering if there’s an option for downloading Youtube videos to Wordpress media library and play them from our own server?

Regards,

Hi,

I’m sorry but no, the plugin will embed videos from YouTube, it won’t import them into the media gallery.

Pre-sale question. Will it work if I change my mood to work on different domain? Or I can ask, is it for multiple domains or single domain use?

Hi,

The plugin is for single domain use. You must purchase additional copies for multiple domains.

Pre-Sale Question – I will be buying this plugin after I just get a quick answer. I am using the light version of this plugin and when I upload many videos at once it will use the same image for many of the post. It seems like the videos are uploading faster then the images and what ends up happening is 10 videos will all be different but have the same feature image. Is this due using the light version and will it be fixed once I upgrade?

Please ignore my last question. I figured that issue out. My current issue is I am using a special theme with the lite version of the app. The problem I am having is that your plugin uses it’s own categories different from my wordless theme. example below:

my site and where the current categories are which already have content: wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category

the categories your plugin creates when I install it. wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=videos&post_type=video

When I upload content using your plugin it doesn’t appear on the site because my site is still using my current categories.

How can I get the categories/taxonomy of your plugin to merge with mine so when I upload videos they go to my current categories and not the ones create by the plugin.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. Regarding your question, Lite version used a custom post type (with custom taxonomies for categories and tags) to import videos. This can’t be changed in Lite version.

PRO version offers the possibility to either import videos as regular post type or set a custom post type of your choice. This means that videos imported with PRO version will appear as regular posts but they will also have the video embed in them.

The importer is working fine, but the field “Video URL” not is importe to my theme (Video Pro) and the video not shows in the post page. This make me fill this field manually to view the video in the imported post page. Can you help me with that?
