YouTube Player from a Feeds Widget

You can use LiveWhale’s built-in feeds widget and a little jQuery to enhance the presentation.

Add a YouTube video feed with attached video player:

  1. Add a .youtube div to a page and insert a Feeds widget
  2. Use {title} in the format arg
  3. The url arg can be in one of the following formats:
    • For a specific playlist: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?playlist_id=playlistID (your playlist ID is the value of the “list” parameter in the URL of a playlist page)
    • For all videos from a specific user:
      https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=channelID (You can get your Channel ID from https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced while logged in to your account)
  4. Add the styles and scripts.
