I am trying to develop a site where people can find and view videos of my activities from my youtube channel. I am quite new to wordpress but I decided to use it to achieve this purpose.

I have been looking for a wordpress plugin to use to display all the videos from my youtube channel but I have not found any. I used these plugins Youtube Channel Gallery and YouTube Upload Widget, but none of them work the way I want, they are only able to import one video at a time only when you input the video url. But what I want is to for my video library on my site to update as the videos in my youtube channel updates.

I would appreciate all answers thanks.

What you are trying to is to import all your videos from your YouTube channel to your WordPress blog.

Unfortunately YouTube is not providing any public web service that will allow external servers to get the kind of data you want to import. I don’t think you will find any plugin capable to do that, at least in the right way.

P.S: The only way a plugin may do that is to analyze the YouTube channel source page and get all the video links in that page. This would be a kind of hack and will not work permanently.

What I suggest to you is to do it manually, and every time you add a video on your YouTube channel, you also add it to your WordPress blog.

EDIT :

Thx to paulj, i've just remenbered that Youtube is providing an RSS feed that you can use to fetch all the videos from your channel, here is how you access it :

If your channel is : https://www.youtube.com/user/blablabla

You can access your RSS using : https://www.youtube.com/rss/user/blablabla.rss

    Doesn't Youtube provide a RSS feed of each channel? You could parse that to feed a Wordpress gallery. Or did Youtube shut that down too? – PaulJ Jul 4 '14 at 11:33
  • You are completely right about the RSS feed. I’m sorry about this mistake I will edit my answer. – user1408314 Jul 5 '14 at 14:14

You can use an iframe for your YouTube channel into a WordPress page, alternatively you can try embedding a YouTube playlist into your site and that can act as a player for you and will update when you update the playlist.
