1. How to get a YouTube Data API Key?

Please follow get Youtube API instructions.

2. Help! My video gallery doesn’t look right!

First of all, don’t worry! I promise you that we can get it looking right. This can be caused by a multitude of things, so try the following (in the order of appearance):

  • Check your browser’s javascript console to see if there are any errors that may be causing this issue.
  • Make sure that your WordPress theme is not including multiple versions of jQuery and is using the latest version.
  • Try disabling other plugins that are used for photo galleries, minifying scripts, widgets, or otherwise alter your site’s appearance, one by one, and really determining if you need it.

If nothing works, please describe your issue and submit a ticket on our plugin support forum, you should receive the reply within 24 hours (except Sunday).

3. Does the plugin support third-party page builders like “Elementor”, “WPBakery”, “Divi”, etc.?

Yes. Simply, generate your shortcode using the plugin’s “Shortcode Builder” and add it in your favourite page builder.

4. Is the plugin compatible with WordPress Multisite?

Yes, it is. However, do not “network-activate” the plugin. Activate it only on the subsites on which you need the gallery. This can be done under “Plugins => Add New” as the Administrator user.


awesome plugin to embed youtube video on wp website
Present the Youtube videos in a gallery as I want, and if issues come up they are quick to investigate and resolve. Use or create shortcodes with variety of options to display videos, playlists or channels. Recommend.
After installing 5 different YouTube gallery plugins that each had fatal flaws (e.g., one didn't work on Edge, one didn't work on Firefox, others didn't work at all, etc.), I was fortunate enough to try Automatic YouTube Gallery and I'm so very glad I did! This product is bulletproof! Worked out-of-the-box with no tweaking HTML or twiddling CSS. However, as I needed to style the gallery to match our theme, it was a breeze doing so! Its code is rock solid, no W3 validator issues as with other products. What else can I say? This is the ONE to install first and forget torturing yourself with unproductive days trying over and over to find a quality product that works on all browser platforms. I can't really say enough good things about the Amazing Automatic YouTube Gallery WordPress Plugin! I want to thank all the folks involved in producing and providing this world-class plugin to WordPress admins, your efforts are paying dividends over and over to those you help and will never meet in person! What a blessing you are and you are so very much appreciated!
It's hard enough to find one of those plugins that just work, but to find a tech support team that is very responsive on top of that is golden. Very impressed with this product and the developers behind it.
Highly recommended plugin, everything is done in minutes, very easy to customize and - the most important point - absolutely great UX here. Tried many similar plugins before, this one is simply amazing. Thank you very much. PS I wanted to donate, but didn't find a link.
