In this WordPress Video Tutorial, I show you how to install, activate and configure the TubePress plugin. You can find the plugin by searching for the term “tubepress” on the plugins sections of WordPress.org or you can download the TubePress plugin directly from TubePress.org.
Your Own YouTube Video Gallery
This plugin will allow you to have a video gallery of videos from YouTube, Vimeo, or a combination of both. You can even include videos in a gallery using JWPlayer. The Video Gallery will display on a page of your WordPress blog or website.
Which Videos Show Up?
The TubePress plugin makes it really easy to create a video gallery on a page of your WordPress blog or website. The video gallery can contain all the videos on your YouTube Channel or just the videos from ONE playlist on your YouTube Channel. You also have the option to pull in random videos from YouTube based on keywords like “home improvement” or “funny dogs and cats”. Obviously, you have very little control over which videos will end up in the TubePress video gallery on that page in your WordPress blog or website, if you just use keywords as the criteria.
Now to Create the Video Gallery
So in the following video, I show you how to add only the videos from your YouTube Playlist to show up in your video gallery. I also take about 1 minute to show you how to create a YouTube playlist in case you don’t already know how to create one.
So, all in all, you can see that this plugin makes it really easy to add a video gallery to your WordPress website. Another cool YouTube video tool you may want to check out is flvto.com
