Good extension but a few issues need looking at - 1. In IE a video keeps playing when a second thumbnail is clicked. If the second video is played the sound of the first continues over the top. Firefox works as it should ie the first video stops if a second thumbnail is clicked
2. Video titles do not show upon entering the page, they only show after clicking play and then stopping. This problem seems to be intermittent
3. Sometimes page title shows as # or ## or ## instead of title - again intermittent.
4. the credit to Featured Youtube Slider is in a tiny weird font -unreadable - in ie
5. In parameters the number of videos per row doesn't seem to work eg set it at 5 and only 4 show
Apart from those issues a nice to have would be to be able to see the titles when hovering over the thumbnails.
Hope this helps, well done.

Stellar! Stunning! Spectacular! Simple! Perfect for featuring specific videos in a module anywhere on your site. I have a video gallery but wanted to take a few videos and place them on the home page - works like a charm, no problems and looks great too. Thanks!

it almost got the 5 star rate but there is one problem that interrupt, if you play more then one video at a time (without stop the previous video) all the videos you play work together.

if you can fix that, it will be one of the best youtube modules.

I installed this module but found it doesn't play videos in any Browser! I contacted the developer for support but did not get any replies! Not recommended and will look for something better

Application works great in Mozilla, but shows a black box in IE 8 when Joom Donate's "mod_jdonation" is used.

On Mozilla works perfect and really looks good, wery easy to install and configure, but i have problems with IE8 - on JA Lead and JA Galena and other(free) templates it shows black square when in IE8 but somehow it works on JA Edenite what is unexplainable for me.

When I first installed the video player on my website, I had nothing but problems. I notified the developer of my issues and within a day, he had sent me a new video player.

I re-installed it and it is easy to install compared to other video players which often require coding.

It works great.

He has included a feature where you can use a different image (instead of the youtube intro image) as the feature image in the slider for each video. This is a nice touch and certainly improves the appearance if you want to use it.

Only negative is that you have to refresh the browser in order to view the other videos after viewing the first one.
