    Is it possible to add Youtube in a grid instead of big photos beneath each other?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Lera, we’ve created some new options above. So you can now set the widget to “Horizontal” layout. You will need to clear your browser cache before adding the new widget.

    Hi, I have the widget installed properly. It has been working fine, but now my latest video isn’t showing up.

      Hi Janée, sorry for the slow reply! This comment went into spam for some reason.

      If you try re-adding a new YouTube widget using the options above, does that fix it?

    Hi all this is doing is showing me the title “youtube” and not the actual videos. Thanks

      Hi Chloe, it looks like you’re using an older version of Blogger templates. This may mean that the widgets on this site do not function correctly. You may wish to purchase a new template which includes all the latest features. Another option would be to embed a YouTube video into a HTML/Javascript gadget manually via this guide.

    This worked great thanks! Is there a way to choose which video is displayed?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Glad you like it! The widget will currently display the most recent videos from your channel automatically. However we may be able to update the widget in future so that you can specify a particular Playlist ID rather than the Channel ID. Then the widget could be used to display videos from specific playlists.

      In the meantime, you could embed a specific video in a “HTML/Javascript” widget via this guide.

        Brill will give that a go. Thank so much for your prompt and helpful response 🙂

      Hi Georgia, please note that all of the information on this website relates to pipdig Blogger templates. You would need to be using one of our templates in order to use our widgets. If you have any questions about a template just let me know 🙂

        Sorry, I thought I could use the widget with any template! Thank you so much for the answer!
