Overall Good Extension

Posted on 22 December 2015

This plugin works pretty consistently. It does what it says and works well across different browsers and devices.

Ease of use

The only tricky part of this plugin is the YouTube API requirement and setup. But you're going to have that for practically any gallery now.

I used this to: Client websites that have YouTube video galleries. Used on about 5 different websites so far.


Много полезных функций.
