This plugins allows you display lists of YouTube videos on a page. It acts in the same way than a photo gallery but instead you add YouTube videos instead of images.


  • Add individual YouTube videos with the YouTube watch id or the full url
  • Create multiple playlists with the videos you added
  • Display videos on a page by selecting a playlist to display
  • Default template compatible with Bootstrap v3
  • Backend fully translated to English and French
Display a single playlist using PlayList component

Getting started

After installation plugin will register YT Gallery into the menu backend. From there you will be able to manage your playlists and videos.

From the video submenu, create a new video. Enter the title of the video and then add the youtube watch id or the full youtube url (When providing full YouTube url, the YouTube watch id will be extracted from the url). Click save and close.

Then, head to the playlist submenu, create a new playlist. Enter the name of the playlist. Open the video relation manager to add your previously created video to that playlist.

Displaying a playlist

{% component 'Playlist' %}

Add the PlaylistComponent to the page you want to display the videos in. In the properties, select the playlist to display. Save and then open your page in your browser.

If you template does not include Bootstrap v3, the default template might not display properly. In that case, you should move the default markup to the theme or override the default partial and write your own styling. This will allow you to change the number of videos per row, YouTube iframe width and height and any further customisation.

    Thanks for the kind review!

    I agree with you that a sorting feature is critical for usability. I will look into that over the weekend.
