Simple Youtube Channel Module

Simple Youtube Channel is a module designed to embed a youtube channel, or a youtube playlist in your site.

everything in the module can be changed from the back end.


* you can set the number of videos per module (from 1 to 50).
* full HTML5 support for devices that doesn't support Adobe Flash, Like iOS (iphone, ipad, ipod) and Android devices.
* you can change the size (width and height) of the main video, and the thumbnails to fit your need.
* you can change all the colors in the module.
* you can change the direction of the module (right to left or left to right)
* you can include more than one instance of the module in the same page.
* you can align the text in the module to center, left, or right.
* you can add text above and/or below the module.

the Module is really simple, all you need is the Channel username, or the Playist ID, and the number of videos you want to display, change the default sizes of the video/thumbnails, and you're good to go.

I was looking for an extension to automatically display the latest YouTube video of a particular channel and this module do that.
Installation and configuration was easy, unfortunately there is no provision to disable YouTube's related and recommended videos - these are the videos YouTube loads after the video playback. I contacted the developer for help but never got an answer.
I rate this extension as good but no support.

This extension has cut down the prep work to get YouTube going with multiple choices. Simply Easy to add a playlist1 module position or playlist400. I use it after creating my own playlist to feed the articles instead of counting own subcribing to random video users. It makes it easy to control from your own playlist any deleted content. A Perfect solution for managing and displaying accurate videos. The support is five stars too.

A really good value extension. Easy to install and use, but the main strenght is customer support: I have written twice to the developer to ask for customizations and every time I got what I needed in a very short time. Highly recommended.

This works right out of the box, and is very easy to customize. I made one minor change to the core files to take the title out. The videos weren't ordering how I liked, so I emailed support and they actually sent me a modified version of the extension with the options I asked for. I couldn't believe it. This is the first extension (of hundreds) that I have ever left a review for, but I felt the need to after they went the extra mile.

I was porting my 1.5 site to 2.5 and I needed to insert videos from my YouTube Channel. I tried a lot of extensions, but only this one is clear, simple and does what it promises for a little amount

i was looking for a module to automaticlly show the latest video on a YT channel and found this one. it was excactlly waht i was looking for, easy to configure and does the job. it even work perffectly on my android device (did not check for iphone compatability).

i had a small problem with the design and i wrote Omer - the developer. he responded in 2 hours and sloved my problem immidietly.

i'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 only because i doesn't have the option to align the thimbnails bellow the main video, but i guess this is somthing that will be added in future releases.

Thank you..

This has been truly a simple-to-use extension, and the support has been great .... especially during my upgrade to Joomla 2.5!

It not works fine in 2.5. No thumbnails are displayed. It does not show playlist. It only shows the channel.
Owner's reply

You probably have the settings wrong, you should have contacted me before writing here.

I was looking for a way to display my video's after upgrading to Joomla 2.5 as support was not there for my old module, as with many other modules that I used in Joomla 1.5 sites. Omar is on top of support and is easy to work with if you have any questions. The module works perfect, as advertised, and you will be 100% happy you bought it. What are you waiting for? 5 stars!

Most all other Youtube extensions I found were for a single video. I needed something that would show the most recent video of a specific channel. This fit the bill perfectly. The demo page is a little misleading. At first I thought that I was required to have the little thumbnails along the side (I only wanted a single video display). Turns out, I can edit those out in the settings too!

Very happy with the module - only draw back was not being able to download module updates directly from the website ...still, the developer responds to emails very quickly so cant complain!

If you've used this module, you'll know it's worth every cent!!!

Without doubt the best module for displaying a YouTube channel through your Joomla site!

After trying a large amount of options to get the best layout that displayed the options my client needed, I caved in and purchased this module - and I'm SO glad I did.

Configuring and setting up was a breeze and within moments I had achieved what I was trying to do: getting my clients uploaded videos automatically uploaded onto their website.

I can't recommend this enough, especially considering its low price!!

I purchased this extension, which is unusual for me. I was frustrated trying to get any free module I could working. I got it up and running with little to no trouble. At one point it was playing a playlist and Omar helped me out. In no time at all he responded to my email and fixed my playlist id. I had a PL in the beginning that shouldn't be there. Great app with great support, recommended

The name says it all. Simple and works first time with no fuss and does everything promised. The unexpected surprise came from my feedback to the developer about a possible improvement that would better suit my needs. Within a short time a complete solution was delivered. Well done indeed. Thank you so much. Highly Recommended.
