How To Automatically Import YouTube Videos To WordPress? YouTube Importer Review

It’s not always easy to import YouTube videos to WordPress. You need a way that will minimize your work. The best option is to use a good YouTube to WordPress plugin.

But you might end spending considerable time and effort in locating a plugin that can simplify that task and is the right choice for your needs.

Instead of allowing videos to run uninterrupted, you could end up manually running all imports or adding videos one by one, which can be quite a hassle.

Luckily, the YouTube Importer plugin solves all of these issues and imports videos automatically. It can easily handle all future and existing video uploads.

Your WordPress website will import videos from YouTube that you choose to import. The plugin will start working right away after you’ve entered YouTube API key information in the plugin’s settings.

Let’s check YouTube Importer plugin features in detail.

Automatically Import YouTube Videos To WordPress

YouTube videos can be imported to WordPress-based sites as posts or custom post type (in the Pro version) using YouTube Importer.

The plugin supports importing featured images, assigning categories, importing videos into current post types, etc. The plugin enables continuous import or “Sync” of YouTube channels. This means videos can be automatically imported whenever new videos are published.

You can import from more than one YouTube channel simultaneously and set import schedules.

YouTube Importer Review

To automatically import YouTube videos, you’ll need to get a unique API key. YouTube mandates this to confirm that content is only being retrieved from verified integrations and apps and to prevent possible abuse or misuse. You can follow this guide on how to obtain an API key.

Go to the “YouTube Importer” > “Settings” to enter API key. Click on the “Save” button when you’re finished.

If the API key is valid, you’ll see the success message, and you’ll be able to go through the rest of the plugin’s settings. The plugin can’t work without API. You will not be able to import videos if you don’t add the correct API key.
