Detail Plugin Description

Use this plugin when you want to display a list of recent YouTube videos from a channel or playlist in your site's sidebar.

This plugin is a fork of Aleksandar Urošević's YouTube Channel. This plugin is much more lightweight and does only have a subset of YouTube Channel's features.

The videos are each only presented with a thumbnail, and optionally also its title and/or description. Clicking a thumbnail takes the user to the video's page on YouTube. This results in a much smaller codebase and no additional front-end dependencies. The original plugin, YouTube Channel by Aleksandar Urošević, on the other hand depends on several JavaScript libraries (jQuery, FitVids.JS and Magnific Popup), which potentially makes the whole WordPress site both slower to load and use.


  • Display latest videos from YouTube channel, favorites or playlist.
  • Option to get random videos from resources mentioned above.
  • The videos are displayed with a thumbnail.
  • Clicking a thumbnail takes the user to the video's page on YouTube.
  • Custom caching timeout.


You can use the style.css from your theme to style the widget's content.

  • .youtube_channel - Main widget wrapper class (non-responsive block has additional class default, responsive block has additional class responsive).
  • .ytc_title - Class of video title above thumbnail.
  • .ytc_video_container - Class of a single item's container wrapper.
  • .ytc_video_1, .ytc_video_2, ... - Class for the container of a single item where the number is the item's placement in the list.
  • .ytc_video_first - Class of the first item's container.
  • .ytc_video_last - Class of the last item's container.
  • .ytc_video_mid - Class of all other containers.
  • .ytc_description - Class for video description text.
