YouTube widget



  • WordPress 2.2+ or 2.0.x/2.1.x with WordPress Widgets


  • Default Display
  • Admin Panel


  1. Download
  2. Extract and upload youtube.php to the plugins/ directory
  3. Enable YouTube Widget in the Plugin admin panel
  4. In widget admin panel, place YouTube in the sidebar, and edit it to enter the YouTube URL, not the embed code


Says wrong video id or no video shows

This could be due to the country code in the url. I added some of them, but they add more and I don’t keep up with them. Just replace it with ‘www’ or just paste the video id.
