I was looking for a joomla extension (3.2) which can integrate a complete youtube channel. JUSERTUBE seems to me to be from all extensions in this category the right approach. And in the demo it does exactly the right thing. Here I would like to give 5 stars, because it is easy to install too and works in general in all layouts.

Unfortunately, the layout "responsive slider" can not cope (yet) with my responsive template (J3.2.1) - or my template struggles with this extension. Otherwise, I am very happy with it, so I rate this great extension with clear conscience 4 stars.

This is a very nice and easy component for Joomla 3.1. Installed without a hitch, added the youtube channel and all videos synced automatically. Perfect for allowing someone to add a video to their channel and it linking to the website without having to do anything back-end. Great clean display as well on the front end! GREAT WORK DEV!

I needed a module that could publish my updating Playlist in a easy to your responsive format. I tried a lot of modules and this one does everything I need with very little modification. I recommend this tool to anyone, it is well worth the money!

I have been using an number of Video Components trying to get the look I need for my new Movie Club. And after running into a number of problems I found myself on looking for another solution and thats when I came across JUser Tube! At first I though it would be a waste of time until I checked out JUser Tube Demo site and saw all the different layouts I would have to play with.

So I dusted off my charge card and brought it. And within 5 minutes I have JUSER Tube installed and fighting with my partner on which layout to use!

Now normally this is where I would just say this a great component and buy it. But we ran until a problem after getting our site up. After a video clip would play the Related Video Option would popup and we notice a number of our testers was clicking on the links and being shown videos that was from our sites on YouTube and not our site.

So we sent the developer a email outlining our problem and threw in a couple of PLEASEs about adding a option to disable the Related Video Option and in less than 24 hours Afzal had a new version attached to his email to us telling us to download and install over the current version. Which worked without a problem!

So our rating is based on a Good product but more important great service!

This is the 4th video gallery module/plugin I've tried and is the only one that works out of the box on my 2.5.11 site. A minor bug was fixed within a day by the excellent support. Many thanks JuserTube!

I bought this and used it on a Joomla 2.5 site and was very happy. When I used it on a Joomla 3.1 site there was an issue with the initial video displaying correctly. I wrote an email to support with a sample URL and got back a new file and simple instructions.

I find all software can have small problems occasionally. What matters at that point is service and in this case the service was excellent.

As many clients have asked me to integrate videos into their sites I've searched and tried numerous extensions to get the job done. Jusertube is top notch, I was able to make a desired layout using the Slider Grid Box and other module options. Selecting and playing new videos without having the page refresh is bliss for users.

The Support has not stopped with this great product. The developer has helped me out on numerous occasions. Don't hesitate to buy!

Functionality of this extention is great, and the taste in graphic design of the developer is really good - module looks very beautiful. But the customer support just rocks! I asked the developer to make some changes in layout and he did that within some minutes!
Highly recommended.

If you are looking for a YouTube Channel player that works on iPad - look no further. Though it is a commercial extension it is well worth the price. Lots of configuration options. Would like to see a drop down box of other videos below the main channel video - but really great and easy to install module. Love the fact that the developer provides a test component to make sure server is compatible prior to purchase.

I used this module now for over a year, but recently had to upgrade to the 2.5 version. While I loved the 1.5 version, the 2.5 version is even better. And, the support that I received from Afzal Hossain was unbelievable - quick responses, expert advise, and very friendly. It needed some tweaking to get it running the way I wanted, but Afzal Hossain's support made the experience very enjoyable. This is a must-have module if you want to show video thumbnails on your site with a lightbox effect.

Great module made life so much easier when synching YouTube videos. The only problem I noticed was that videos wont play on current Apple mobile IOS devices with IOS 5. 60% of people that watch YouTube videos use mobile devices and this trend is only but growing. I hope it will be fixed, otherwise a great module.
Owner's reply

It's fixed (in version 5.3)

Installed it last year, in a attempt to tame an endlessly requesting customer, I was delighted to find a module that resolved my problem.
Mr. Hossain even sent me a modified installer to resolver a problem I had.
Now that the extension has been updated, it surpassed my expectations. Bravo!

I picked this module for its looks, and my customer was very pleased with it. Setting up the module was a breeze. I just had a few questions about the styling of the module - which turned out to be due to some settings in my template css. I got a very quick response. Thumbs up!
