Manage Details of Each Video in Yottie

YouTube is a worldwide video-sharing service that shows millions of spots created by users. And you are able to display any YouTube video on WordPress or other CMS. That’s why the handy organization of your playlist is important for the best UX. Our YouTube channel plugin will help you achieve it in a creative manner.

All data about videos can be presented in the gallery. Just decide what information should be shown on your website. Moreover, choose video layout you liked and a playback approach. So what are you waiting for? Choose “Video” tab and customize the grid!

YouTube Plugin Video Options

After selecting the proper tab, you will see the following options:

  • Video layout
  • Video play mode
  • Video info

Now let’s find out the purpose of these features.

Video Layout

You might want to set up different video previews depending on how the plugin is used. Maybe you’d like to show more information during the sneak peek. Or you’d like to draw attention to YouTube content straight away. Yottie has three layouts to meet your requirements.

YouTube Plugin Video Layouts

Change video previews by making the choice for:

  • Cinema – preview images are set by default. Users are able to see info on hover while pointing at the image

  • Horizontal – this layout will come in handy if you strive to demonstrate videos in the form of a list

Tip: The horizontal mode will work only if the width of each Yottie columns will be more than 440 pixels. Otherwise, Yottie will show videos in the cinema layout.

In addition, our YouTube plugin for website has three ways of playing videos:

  • Popup – this is probably one of the most user-friendly modes. After clicking the desired video, an additional window will be opened on the existing page. Thus, your audience don’t have to leave your website
  • Inline – the chosen spot will be opened right in your grid. It is perfect for big video previews, that is, when the plugin has only several columns and rather big size
  • YouTube – videos will play in a new browser window directly on YouTube

Video Info

What if your guests want to know a little more about videos before watching them? Yottie contains eight info elements, which you can manually turn on/off. Therefore, this option will let you organize the informative descriptions.
