Youtube Channel Slider

Youtube Channel Slider

Inauguro la sección de WordPress Plugins con este primer plugin, al que he llamado Youtube Channel Slider.

No puedo adjudicarme todo el mérito de la programación del mismo, ya que está basado en

Funcionamiento del plugin:

Extrae las capturas (imágenes) de los vídeos presentes en un canal de youtube y las presenta en formato slider o carrousel.

Aquí dejo una captura con la ventana de configuración.

Advierto que esta es una versión inicial y aún faltan por corregir algunos detalles.


Actualización (18-nov-2011):

  1. Alguna demostración?

  2. Hello, Thanks for putting so much effort into making this plugin. but there seems to be a little problem. it’s not working.

    i’ve tried it on several installs, and i have asked others to try it, and it doesn’t work at all.

    i’m looking for a plugin like this, so i would like to ask you to take a look at it. it would be awesome if you could make it work again!

    thanks in advance,


  3. oye y como se inserta?

    • Sajhu, en el readme.txt tienes las instrucciones de como utilizarlo.
      De todos modos te las menciono aquí de nuevo:
      1. Simply place `< ?php if (function_exists('ycs_show')) echo ycs_show(); ?>` in your theme.
      2. Add the shortcode ‘[ycs]’.
      3. Using widget.

  4. Hi, looks like a very nice plugin. But causes an error while activating on WP 3.3.1… Do you plan to develop it further on for the new version of WP?

    • Please, could you give me more details, because I have it working perfectly with WP 3.3.1, perhaps it’s some problem with other plugin.

  5. Your plugin is good, but it’s not working on WP3.1.1.

    • Please, could you give me more details, I test it with WP 3.1.1 and I don’t have any problem.

  6. Hello,

    I a refering to the Youtube Channel Slider.

    Is it possible to make it so that when you hover over the video thumbnail it shows the video title?



    • Elliot, good suggestion. Added in ToDo for next release

  7. Hello,

    Nice plugin. Is there a way to scroll up instead of left-right? Also is possible to open links in lightbox instead of going in youtube?

    • Thx Marios,
      added your suggestion ToDo

      • Thank you Sinius.
        I have managed to make it work with lightbox. you can check it out on my client website if you like.

        I just need to know how to change the slide direction…

        Thank You

  8. Can I use videos from my clipshare website instead of youtube?

  9. We were using this plugin for quite a while with no problems on – today I did some updates bringing the site up to 3.6 – and it’s stopped working entirely. I'[ve tried disabling other plugins but haven’t had any luck…. any ideas?

    • Chris, please update the plugin. Version 1.1 is available

      • I updated, and it still isn’t working – I think a conflict occurs with my theme.

        • After updating my theme, all is well :) Thanks for a quality plugin 😀

  10. i am finding problem in responsive, is this plugin responsive or how i can make it responsive?

    • Please send the site where you have the problem.

  11. Hi, your plugin is very cool.
    Just some ideas:
    1. I think ability of show multiple rows would be very useful (for me at least :), I’d like to show a video-wall-like page with many videos and less paging.
    2. more option, to show/refer youtube playlist(s), not only a channel
    3. more than one instances of the plugin, [ycs-1], [ycs-2] etc, to serve more channels or playlists
    4. easy customization of lightbox and generated content’s colors, width, etc.
    5. the plugin as a free one is more than perfect, the more pro, more comfortable “future version” would worth some money for many of us, I’m sure.

  12. Thank you for the plugin. I have two questions:

    1. Can I change the background color of the slider ina a widget? I have a dark background in my theme so this white background in the slider doesn’t look nice.

    2. When I open the slider there is {pp_social} writen below the video. What does that mean and how can I get rid of it?


    • Yeah. For that you can use the custom css of the plugin jetpack.

  13. Hi,
    How i can display in this plugin only videos from some catalog or other section?

  14. I found solution for show playlist ID:

    and in options write playlist ID (not user ID).
    Check my website:
    Thanks for plugin :)

    • Thanks for sharing

  15. Thank you for nice plug in, i have used plug in with short code , it does not display videos



  16. Hola Sirius. Estamos tratando de usar el plugin en nuestra web y funciona, pero no vemos las miniaturas de los videos. Lo estamos usando acá: Te agradezco cualquier consejo que puedas darnos. Saludos y Gracias.

  17. ¿Hay posibilidad de poner dos canales?

  18. I love this plugin! Now I am sad it just stopped working. YouTube has changed their API. Will you be updating this plugin so it will work again? You can see how it displays at I don’t want to change it but hope you can update it to work with new YouTube API’s :-)

    • Marco I am aware about this problem. I hope have a fix asap.

      Any donation to accelerate the fix will be wellcome 😉

  19. Estimado, el plugin ya no muestra los videos de mi canal y no me deja configurarlo desde la interfaz del screenshot. Qué opción me das? Además ya no está en el repositorio de WordPress. Saludos y gracias!

  20. We were using this plugin on our church website, which was really good. Hope you can fix the Youtube API issue soon. thank you!

    • Updated.
