Recommended Actions:

Use the <amp-youtube> tag to embed any missing YouTube videos in your AMP page.

Thank you. I have sent to your email

Thank you Constantin. Your great plugin does its job as usual but my Host made a mistake and installed PHP5.4.xxx instead of 5.6.xxx. Mistake corrected and plugin humming excellently now! Best plugin among its peers.

My pleasure, happy to be of assistance. Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

i have recently changed domains and since then the thumbnails have gone from not having boarders to having them, thus making them bigger on the main page. the thumbnails were imported via youtube.

Hi,

Thumbnails imported by the plugin are the exact images that YouTube provides, there’s no modification added to them. I really can’t say why there is a border around them after you moved your website.

hello. I know this question has been asked before, but I just wanted to clarify. I’m using the BeTube theme and the built in YouTube importer isn’t working as expected (it keeps importing duplicates and scheduling doesn’t work). Will this plugin work straight out of the box with this theme (BeTube) or will I require some configuration from yourself? I’m a bit concerned because in your demo I see your imported videos show in “Videos” on the dashboard, yet on BeTube the videos appear in “POSTS”. Its done this way to separate video posts from blog posts (which have been placed in BLOGS) on the dashboard. I hope that all makes sense!

Hi,

This theme was previously named BeeTube, after a while, it was removed from ThemeForest and again, after a while, it was back, now being named BeTube and having slightly different video details custom fields on posts.

The plugin was compatible with BeeTube and in a future version will be made compatible once more with BeTube.

Right now, there’s a small modification that needs to be done, which I can do for you if you contact me from my profile page (https://codecanyon.net/user/cboiangiu) and provide valid FTP and WP admin temporary access so I can implement this after you purchase and install the plugin on your website.

Hope the above answers your question, let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

Is there a way to import the original uploader information? I would like to give credit to the uploader and make their name searchable as well.

Hi,

Sorry, the uploader isn’t stored anywhere for now. I have a question though: how do you plan to store the user? If you can describe the process it would help me make a better idea about the functionality you’re looking for. Thank you, please let me know.

My website is all about jet skis and some of the video creators deserve a lot of credit for there work. I am using VideoPro and it’s “Actor” profile. Instead of Actors I would just like to add the producer so people can search by their profiles. So far i am typing the information in manually but once I start mass importing this would become a tedeious chore.

I understand. Can you please tell me, are actors profiles a custom post type or something else? Better yet, can you please give me temporary WP admin access so I can take a look and make an idea of what you might need? You can contact me privately from my profile page: https://codecanyon.net/user/cboiangiu

Hi,

How do i set up the custom url for conditional automatic import ?

found my answer. using wget

wget -O – custom URL >/dev/null 2>&1

Hi,

First thing to do is to enable the option from plugin Settings, tab Import options. After you enable the option and save the settings, you will notice a message below the checkbox:

Important! Please make sure that you access URL http://website.com/?cbc_autoimport=A_UNIQUE_KEY by either setting a server cron job or using an alternative method that will generate a hit on this URL at least equal to automatic import setting from above.

You need to copy the URL generated into that message and set up a cron job on your server to open that address at a time interval. Please note that the cron job you set up must open the address mentioned above at at least the frequency you set for Automatic import option to run, otherwise you will most likely experience delays when importing.

If you don’t know how to set up a cron job on your server, please ask your hosting provider for assistance.

Hello,

Great plugin! However, my theme only takes the first URL and places it in a certain place in the post.

Could you add some setting that does exactly this, rather than to add the embed?

Hi,

Depending on how your theme works, you can do this for yourself using the theme compatibility actions and filters. This means that instead of allowing the plugin to embed the videos, you can embed them using your theme. Please see this for more details: https://wpythub.com/documentation/tutorials/third-party-compatibility/

Hello,

Does this feature “Remove text from descriptions found after:” work with unicode?

It doesn’t seem to work in my case, can you advice ?

thanks

You can create your own text replacement functionality by using filter cbc_video_post_content.

I have a problem with the bulk importer. It imports the thumbnail but apparently in some cases not the video:

http://watercrafttv.com/jet-ski-to-bimini-july-2017/

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Ok, I realize now it did not safe it as a video post.

is this compatible with Facebook instant articles?

To be honest, I never tested it. I assume it’s a plugin. Can you please give me a download link for it? Thank you.

Yes it is with plugin by Facebook and Jetpack theme writers ( Automattic) https://wordpress.org/plugins/fb-instant-articles/

Please let me know if it works. I am planing to buy your theme.

I am using Divtag Newspaper theme. Let me know if you need need anything else.

Can you please tell me how you expect the plugin to work? I need more details about what you need to get published on Facebook, thank you.

I’d like to purchase this plugin but only if I can embed a video player that will play only videos that are within a certain category. Can this plugin do this?

Can you please give me more details? How do you plan to embed the videos? Using the plugin shortcode?

instead of import the thumbnails and save it on our server, can we just import the direct link to the image host on youtube server like the link above?

Hi,

Images imported by the plugin are from the locations you mentioned. The plugin imports the image depending on your image size settings from plugin settings. At this moment, images can’t be linked by the plugin automatically and displayed as post featured image, sorry.
