Every page is full of advertisements and tells you to buy the PRO. Even on the menu link view itself it put's a back link with a price image on top with very ugly colors (I would accept backlinks but in a smart way!!). I played around with it for 5 minutes and then uninstalled it because the overadvertisement was too much for me....
2) I understand the free version must have a link, and I can respect that - but it's super intrusive! An image saying "GET PRO FOR $35" is smack dab on the video content. I guess I'm just accustomed to non-intrusive demo links, such as a link at the bottom of the module or component, not to mention not putting a price right on the thing, lol.
3) Lastly, using this extension as a "MODULE" will still take over the title of your website like the component, so now my homepage title is the title of whatever video is displaying.
Kind of annoying.
But what great functionality! I love it far more than I am annoyed by it. It can do so many things and the free version still allows you to customize a LOT.
Thank you for review.
1) Instead of Module Class Suffix we have "Custom Layout" and meanwhile you may access the module by id #YoutubeGalleryMainContainer1
where 1 is instance id.
2) Sorry for the link. Our marketing department forced me to do this way.
3) There is option called "Change Page Title" in theme settings, just set it to "Unchanged"
I decided to use a paid version to get rid of the logo but the free version works well.
I have many galleries in my website and everything is ok in different themes.
The support is great, is very quick answers and problem solved. They are also improving the extensions. Thanks guys.
I tried pretty much every 2.5 extension and spent a good amount on a number of them. However, I couldn't find anything that met all my requirements until I tried Youtube Gallery.
Quite simply it is the best available. Installation was a breeze. You add categories and then video links into those categories. Next you design a theme that you then specify in the module - a much neater way of doing things and something that other extensions should follow the idea of.
Worked right away and after selecting the HMTL 5 player it also works on iPad.
Also, a massive plus is that it automatically generates the thumbnail for each video, something that most seem to forget. I don't want to spend time uploading individual thumbs so this is perfect.
The extension has tons of options to get your player and gallery the way you want it.
The only improvement I would make is for the backend to automatically show the original titles from the videos. You could then edit these rather than adding your own from scratch. It does drag in the original titles in the frontend but you have no way of knowing what the video is at the backend without playing it first.
That is a small gripe in what is an excellent product and well worth paying the extra small amount for getting the pro version.
On an updated site I needed some help by installing it correctly in Joomla 2.5.7. The plugin did work in first instance but some Joomla errors occured. Within 24 hours the team of JoomlaBoat responded and helped me solving this minor issue.
Thanks for this great product and great support guys. Keep up the good work!
I tested it in Joomla 2.5
I used it in an article adding the plugin.
The settings were:
Player Type: HTML5
When I opened the page the video started playing auto - without clicking in Play.
The player is embedded as an orth to me.
We have support forum:
Please post your message there.
Also the link to your website ans screen-shot of gallery settings are required. You may send it to us vie contact form on our website: http://www.extensions.compass.com.pa/
It would be even more awesome if it had a categories view, but I can always add that in myself.
Keep up the good work!
I received an error message, and I submitted the problem on the forum. 2 hours later, I received the solution. I have applied it in 5 minutes, and everything is working perfectly!
The extension is doing its job in a wonderful way, and I am surprised about the quality of the support.
I create my first gallery - with personalization in layout and styles - in 10 minutes... what to say... keep on the good job!
You have conquered a customer.
