Thanks for the extension. Looks nice, works fine, easy to install and set up. The idea of the capability to publish some youtube channel that petros mentioned would be great for future. For now, I am happy with the extension. Great job, developers.

Good alternative for some commercial extension available. I used one of the commercial extension but I feel that this one even easier to get job done!

I hope you will add more features such as autoplay... videos inline auto slide...

Keep up good work!

At first I was put off about some of the negative comments but after trying others I came back and gave it a go. Was very impressed, no conflicts which I encountered with the other modules I tried.
Nice work, love it. Many thanks to the author.

This module works perfectly, even when multiple instances are used on the same page.

if you can make for component and responsive too, this module will be come to the best video extensions. can you?

but for free module, i still happy and satisfied.

It doesn't work with iOS devices because it is flash component.

I know that iOS limitation with Flash is annoying but there are a lot of iPhones, iPads,... outside not to take that into account.

If it worked for iOS device it would be a great extension.

Anyway, thanks to the author.

It is one of the best non-commercial modules for Youtube. Although the logo Youtube Slider is visible this is a Non-commercial but adware module. Besides that it works nicely, I wish it had more options about the dimensions of the thumbnails (you can only set the height)

I have tried using a few other media slider or viewer and until I tried this, I had been in a kind of stupor! Wow, this is an excellent extension. Thanks for making it also FREE! In Africa where every cash is stretched, you make it easier for website designers like me to make a decent living.

It works as decribed and is pretty configurable as far as design goes...and then I ran the page where I put this module through W3C Makrup Validation Service. When I disable the module, 0 error / warnings. When I enable the module, 93 errors and 132 warnings. You really need to test your extensions before you release them

Works as described except for Internet Explorer 9. Works nicely in Firefox and Chrome, both on windows and Ubuntu, but not in my I.E. 9. Nice module, easy to navigate in it but I fear I will not be able to use it I can not resolve the I.E. issue.

I used this on my website to show rock climbing videos. It is easy to use and i am totally new to Joomla and have not much of a clue of what im doing.

With the Featured Youtube Slider you can install and setup really fast and easy. Plus you can make it look were nice and pro.

My only draw back was that it does not support Vimeo videos...if it did i would love it even more. Nice work guys and maybe think about supporting vimeo videos ;)

I would have given this more stars because it is easy to install, and quick to get up and running with minimal fuss.

However, there are some big drawbacks. I would have liked to contact the developer about them directly, but their extension pointed me to some forums which barely look like they even belong to this plugin. When I attempted to register so I could post in (what I hoped was) the appropriate forum, the registration link led to a 404 error page....really?

If you have this extension located near any drop down menu items the menu will drop down BEHIND the video. In FF and Chrome it is just for a few seconds before popping up infront of the video. In IE however, it stays behind the video. I cant use this if customers cannot view my top menu!

I am annoyed because I wasted hours of time installing the extension, setting it up where and how i wanted, testing it on different browsers and then trying to contact the developer directly only to have more problems.

It is sad because other than those issues, it would be an excellent extension.
