PHPVibe’s Youtube importer now uses the API V3.
Some info in this article may be old and deprecated.
One of the most requested and abused features in the PHPVibe cms is the Youtube importer.
The free plugin comes built-in and does not require any separate install to use it.
There are few limitations from the Youtube api like the number of videos returned (see: Understanding the Youtube API) and the Google ads and Youtube logo (see Removing the Youtube logo from player).
The Youtube importer explained
The Youtube importer comes with 2 modes:
– Youtube Automatic will import all video on the screen without asking any questions (you can later edit/manage them in the Media Manager)
– Youtube by Choice will allow you to pick which video get imported or which are skipped.
A common problem is understanding the username/channel for the Youtube user/channel import.
has the username
and using it will import the “Cat Music” videos.
Importing Youtube searches
Is the easiest thing to do.
You just type the search keyword and map the new videos to an local channel/category and an local user.

Cool, Looking forward.
BTW, there is a new add-on I would like you to develop. willing to pay. contact me directly via mail if you are interesting. (removed for avoiding spam)

Hi Sharon, at the moment our crew is going trough some massive personal changes, for now we can’t take custom jobs, just maintain development, we hope this will no longer be the case soon.
Hi can we import youtube video to our server?Mean download in our server.
Hi, not by default, there is an sample tutorial about this on the forum with some external php classes.
Hey i would like to use your complete setup in a shared hosting ,is it still possible as the Ffmpeg problem was occuring during my previous job.
Hi, this depends on the shared having requirements /requirements/
If you don’t have ffmpeg PHPVibe will still work, the problem is it cannot extract any info from uploaded video files, so you have to manually upload a thumb, type the duration, etc.
Import youtube content means only importing the play code or play url, without importing the video media files themselves into our own servers, right?
Hi. Yes. Just the url to the Youtube page is stored.
I would like to make a suggestion add mais.uol.com.br to host videos of him too because then I will be very interested in purchasing.
Where is download link
It’s bundled into PHPVibe.
I’m trying function Youtube Importer by keyword. But I got the blank page. I have installed and entered the youtube key v3 api in the Gobal Setting.
Does anyone know what’s happened? how can I fix it?
