Automate YouTube Articles

Why spend HOURS embedding YouTube videos
in your articles, when AutoTube takes just
5 seconds to set up?

  • Import the latest 25 videos from any YouTube channel
  • Set to run automatically, on a schedule
  • Populate a new website with videos in seconds
  • Money back guarantee
Buy AutoTube now

Find out how AutoTube will save you hours and hours and hours...

Do you want a video-rich website?

Or perhaps you want to build a series of articles, based on recent TED talks, for example?

Or maybe you just upload videos frequently and want to feature them in your Joomla website?

If so, you'll know that individually embedding each video takes a very long time.

But imagine if your Joomla website could automatically detect when a YouTube channel had a new video, and instantly create a new article with the video perfectly embedded?

If you could even populate a new Joomla system with hundreds, or even thousands, of automatically imported videos, just imagine the possibilities!

If you embed YouTube, you need AutoTube

And here's why. Not so long ago I was asked to add hundreds of videos to a Joomla website. It took me hours and hours.

But since I am a programmer, I knew there must be a better way.... and so AutoTube was born!

The great thing about AutoTube, is that once it's configured you don't need to do ANYTHING else. You can simply upload videos to your YouTube channel, and AutoTube will take care of the rest. You can even change channels anytime you want (and you don't need to own the channel... just tell AutoTube which channel to look at, and it will add new articles any time the channel gets a new video!)

Have a look at all the great features you get with AutoTube - and don't forget, it comes with full support and a money back guarantee!

  • Import the latest 25 videos from ANY channel
  • Set up takes just 5 seconds... and then just ignore it
  • All YouTube channels are supported
  • Optionally add a link to the original video
  • Configure the size of the video on your website
  • Automatically set new articles as published or unpublished

I'm using Autotube 1.4.3 which has stopped working. I read in your comments about the Google API update so I changed the settings so that the 'channel ID' is entered into the 'YouTube user' field, set date to 0 but still no result. Your documentation mentions that once a licence expires that the plugin should still continue to function.
I'm using Joomla 3.4.3.
Please assist.

Hi Jorge,

Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately, the YouTube API only allows access to the latest 25 videos. AutoTube is useful for adding videos to your site as they are added to YouTube, but unfortunately it is unable to add 11,000 videos that were previously added.

Sorry about that!

Good morning Tracey

You will need to enter the Channel ID now rather than the YouTube user's ID. This is due to a very recent YouTube API change.

Please enter the Channel ID (for Jamie Oliver this is UCpSgg_ECBj25s9moCDfSTsA)

Then set the last run to 0 and it should run correctly. You will find that your videos are imported to the Article Manager and saved as new articles.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hey Barnaby,
We used this plugin all last year and it was seamless, worked perfectly. Now with the YouTube April 20, 2015 API update it's no longer pulling in the videos it only pulls the https://youtube.com/devicesupport video leading me the support page https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?p=yt_devicesupport&hl=en&rd=1 that suggests this plugin will no longer work with the new API update. Any suggestions or updates that will correct this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks,

Hi Rick,

Thank you for getting in touch.

AutoTube has been updated to work with the new YouTube API - you'll just need to download the latest version and update your AutoTube settings.

There are 2 changes to be aware of.

Firstly, the description is no longer available from the YouTube API, so unfortunately the video description can't be imported.

Secondly, it now works with Channel IDs rather than your YouTube user name. So if you view one of your videos, and then click your User Name, it'll open the Channel, which looks like www.youtube.com/channel/ABC123 . Take the ID there, and use it to specify which channel to import videos from.

I hope that helps! All the best - Barnaby Dixon

Hi there,

Thank you for your question.

I'm not completely sure I know what you mean... but just so you know, the way autotube works is to create one article for each video.

I think that it will be easier if you set up the page you need manually. It sounds quite complex, and will require css, javascript and iframes, so it would be more suited to be set up as a module than as an article.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi there Sean,

Thank you for getting in touch - really sorry I missed your earlier post. We switched servers and unfortunately that means I didn't get an email alerting me that you posted.

Which browser are you using? I just checked your page and couldn't see any obvious error messages.

The 'different origin' message is to do with something other than AutoTube. Your server might have a setting that doesn't allow access to content other than from the 'localhost'. But I agree with you that it looks like it might also be a JCE restriction here. What happens if you disable JCE and set the 'Text only' editor as your default editor?

Please edit the menu item for this category, and set Introduction to 'Hide'

This will hide the top video and introduction.

You will need to set the correct video size, and then reimport the videos. To do this, first change the video size, then save the plugin. Then delete the previously imported videos from the article manager, and then also delete them from the article trash. Then the videos will reimport with the new video size.

This extension is used to actively display the latest YouTube videos from your channel on your website.

An example of how it works is http://www.globalchange.com/Recent-Futurist-YouTube-Videos-future-trends/

You will see that each video is recognised, and imported as a new article, and can then be used in Joomla. This means that yes, it is automatically included in search results.

Suport please - I have installed the plugin and to get it functioning correctly I have read through the comments here and have also watched your video. I still have a couple of outstanding issues I require your help with.

1. The newly created articles status is 'published but pending'(hence not visible on the front end) - I have discovered that the articles created by autotube are given a 'created date and time' and a 'published dated and time' which is 7hours ahead of my timezone. I have checked server time, etc. Any fix for this?
If I create an article from the backend as usual I have no issues with them instantly being published.

2. when I first ran the plugin none of the videos were visible in the article frontend, only the link. I discovered that I needed to change my editor from JCE to Tinymce, then it worked properly. Is there a fix for this or do I need to always have my editor set to Tinymce?

3. Is there a setting to have the video automatically fill the whole width of the article?

Thank you for your time and excellent plugin.

Hi there,

Thank you for your questions.

That's a very strange bug with the date. Leave it with me & I'll work out what's going on. In theory, AutoTube uses the local server date & time to set the published and created date & time - I will change it so that it uses the Joomla default timezone instead.

The error with your JCE editor is likely that the JCE doesn't allow 'iframe' tags by default. Please edit your JCE editor settings, so that iframe tags are permitted, and then it should work properly.

I'm afraid that AutoTube doesn't offer automatic full width videos - this is because although you can set the iFrame to width=100%, it can't automatically calculate the correct height, since the youtube video is loaded dynamically, so height and width always need to be fixed. If you know how wide your pages will be, however, you can just adjust the height and width accordingly.

Hi there David

Thanks for your email.

I am guessing that your template CSS needs a rule like this added to your blog entry container:
div.blog_item {
display:block;
clear: both;
}

You'll need to adapt this for your specific template, but this is a guess at what the code should look like. Once the blog item container is told to clear, it'll ensure that the full blog item adds space as needed to fully contain the youtube iframe.

The price reflects not just the time spent actually coding the extension, but also the time spent in education to become a PHP developer, the costs incurred in maintaining this website, the intrinsic value of the extension itself, and the cost of providing support.

When you compare the price ($50) to the average price of just one hour of a professional developer's time (upwards of $75 canadian) you might consider that it's actually quite cheap :-)

And yes I do offer a full guarantee, support, etc. Unfortunately I did have a demo site but I had to take it down since it got abused. Sorry about that.

To set your ordering, first create a menu item that relates to the category where your YouTube articles are saved.

Then set the ordering options in the menu item. If you do not want a menu item for the category, you can then unpublish it, and the ordering will still hold.

As discussed via email your videos were all successfully imported.

Any plugin settings will only affect videos that have not yet been imported. You'll need to delete all video articles, and also delete them from the trash, then they'll be reimported with your new saved settings.

All the best - Barnaby Dixon

That's an awesome solution, great work! And it can be smoothly styled wiith CSS - well done!
The only thing is: I need to import from several channels. Any option to get multiple instances of this plugin to work? Don't want to hack the code too hard, but if there is a code hack solution I'd be fine too.

Thanks!

I figured out my previous issues, it seems some things have moved in Joomla 3.X I'm epicly happy with exception that:

I would like to do this for multiple YouTube users somehow.

simpler auto formatting, it seems like AutoTube does not recognize YouYubes new lines so things end up a bit jumbled.

Though probably an unrealistic feature request it would be awesome to have AutoTube import video tags as tags for that article.

in joomla 3 I'm not seeing this "TEXT FILTERS" field you are talking about for joomla 1.6+ I would also like to ask when or if this will be able to work for multiple YouTube accounts.

Hi,

The 'Text filters' is to do with editing articles created by AutoTube. You need to change the article edit settings.

AutoTube currently just works for a single YouTube account; we're not going to increase that since there are too many issues with server processing.

Hi there Nena,
Please visit http://demos.php-web-design.com/administrator/ to see AutoTube in action. The login is demo, and pass is demo, and you'll find AutoTube under Extensions > Plugins. You can then see any generated articles under the Article Manager as you'd expect, and if you set them to Featured, you'll then find them on the front page of the demo site.

Once you've entered your youtube details, you can then see the articles in your chosen category, in the Article Manager. Set them to 'Featured' if you want to see them on the PHP Web Design demos homepage.

Hi Barnaby,

We upload a lot of different videos to YouTube and don't want all of them to end up on our site. Is there a way to use key words to filter out what gets added from our YouTube channel?

Hi Barnaby,

I did just that and yes, the plugin immediately published the video. However, as these videos are of a private nature (just my family, my son etc..) I do not want to leave then as public. If I have to go in and manipulate each upload then some of the value of an automated tool is lost.

A few questions:

- Is it possible to hook into the channel rather than the userid?
- Is it possible to extend the plugin to do the following
* The user uploads to youtube with the setting 'Public'
* The plugin, which takes the username & password as input also has the ability set the status of the video to 'Public', 'Unlisted' or 'Private'

Regards,
Prakalp.

Hi Barnaby,

Post installation, I have a video on youtube never previously imported. I set the Last run date to 0 to force a run. The category is published etc.. still no video.

Now the link to the video is in the category 'Unlisted' will this have an impact on the ability of the plugin to reference this video?

Regards,
Prakalp.

Hi Prakalp,

The video has to be publicly available on YouTube to be discovered by AutoTube. Unfortunately there is no way around this. You could, however, just list it publicly for just a few hours, allow AutoTube to find it, and then set it to non-public.

All the best

I had the plugin installed on my site tuvideoclase.com and imported 6.000 videos perfectly. It went back and imported everything. But now I have installed it on a new site, academiausero.com and it doesn't seem to import the old videos. It only updates the new ones. Something misconfigured? Thanks in advance.

Hi Jose,
The plugin should continue to import all videos until your entire channel is imported. The only reason it wouldn't import a video is because it has already been imported once (and for example, you have deleted the article). If you remove any previously imported videos from the article trash, the plugin will attempt to re-import them. Other than that could you please email me your YouTube channel name and I'll check if there's any issues? Thanks,
Barnaby Dixon

Hi there Eddie

Thanks for your email. I've never seen a case where the videos weren't imported but the descriptions etc. were. Did you check the AutoTube plugin settings - specifically the 'import video' setting? Other than that I can't think what the problem could be. If it persists, please email me separately with temporary admin access so I can work out what's going on.
Thanks!

Hi again Eddie,

Thank you again for your feedback. I'm afraid that there was a bug introduced in a recent upgrade, which was preventing the videos from importing correctly. I've corrected the problems, so AutoTube should now work correctly. I will email you separately with the upgrade details.

Just so you know, you will need to delete the articles that were previously imported, and then also delete the articles from the Article Trash. After that, the videos should re-import correctly. To trigger an immediate import, set the Last Run setting to 0 in the AutoTube plugin settings.

All the best,

Hi Barnaby. First of all, nice extension - it's light and simple. However I seem to be having a problem with it...

I've got the plugin setup so that it scans my youtube channel, and I can see it's creating articles for the stories (although when I go to edit them they don't have the embedded video, but I'm not too worried about that right now).

My problem is I just can't get the articles to show in the frontend. I've tried menu items for the category as a blog and as a list, but none of the articles created by AutoTube appear - though if I make my own test article in the normal way in the video category it does appear. If I try making a menu item link to a single AutoTube article, I just get a 404 error.

I've tried setting the AutoTube articles as featured, but that doesn't seem to make any difference either.

Running Joomla 2.5.

Hope you can help, seems like a great extension and I just want to get it working ^_^

Hi there,

To set an article to show on the frontend, you need to set it to 'featured'. Then just check it's published and it should show up. You might need to delete or refresh any cache you have within the Joomla admin so the new articles show up.

To edit the article once you've imported the video, set your super admin (you) to No Filtering under Global Configuration > Text filters. This will prevent the YouTube embed code from being stripped automatically when you edit the article.

All the best,

I'm using Joomla 2.5 version. Seems my plugin settings are not being written. The description still displays even though I've set this to No, and the file is not embedding. It just displays a link to the video which opens the video in YouTube in a new browser tab. I have the link setting as No also.

Hi there,
Please note the settings only affect newly imported videos. Previously imported videos will use the settings that were current when they were imported. To re-import your old videos with new settings, just delete your AutoTube articles, then remove them from the Article trash, and they'll be re-imported with your new settings.

Hi Ian,
Import should be automatic - you won't need special permissions of any kind. Just make sure your Joomla cache is turned off, or limited to say 15 minutes, so the pages are displayed as soon as possible. Also please ensure you've selected a published category for the new articles. The new articles should be in your article manager, if you sort by ID descending, you should find them.

Hi there,

The plugin runs automatically. Please check you have selected a category for the new articles, and enabled the plugin. After that it will import videos on a regular basis, and start by periodically importing as many as it can find that already exist. Any new videos posted on the youtube channel will be imported as new articles.

Please check the 'Last run' option under the plugin advanced settings. If the setting is 0, it means the plugin hasn't yet run, and you need to enable it.
