A WordPress plugin to display live video streaming from YouTube embedded in a WordPress site.
See this article for setup instructions.
This plugin uses YouTube’s API to check for and display a live video from a specified channel. If no video is available, there are several fallback options:
- Show nothing
- Show a custom message
- Show a specified video
- Show a specified playlist
- Show a playlist of videos from that channel
- Show a countdown for upcoming videos
It includes a caching feature to reduce the number of API requests and stay well within the daily limits.
This plugin development happens on GitHub. Recent additions may be in a feature branch, and pull requests are welcome.
