We designed this custom playlist to impress your visitors. Bring more traffic to your site using this video playlist developed to support auto-play, which jumps to the next video upon finishing. Adding a video playlist (YouTube or Vimeo) to your website has never been more accessible.

You can add a playlist to a single post page or straight on your pages.

On single post pages

First, make sure you add a “Classic” element in your Gutenberg editor in order to have access to the theme specific elements.

 

To add the video playlist feature on single post pages select the YouTube playlist or Vimeo playlist from the shortcode drop down of the Add / Edit post text editor like in the image.
After adding the shortcode, you can start adding the video’s ID.

 

How to create a YouTube playlist

In your post the shortcode will be this one:
[td_block_video_youtube playlist_title="" playlist_yt="" playlist_auto_play="0"]
For this step, you need to add a Title to your playlist in playlist_title=”” parameter and your videos IDs.

Newspaper Theme video playlist: YouTube

 

To add a video’s ID to the YouTube playlist shortcode, you have to go to Youtube.com, click on the video you want to add to your playlist, then from the URL of the page take the video ID and paste it in the playlist_yt attribute one after another separated by commas.

Parameter auto_play=”0″ – means your playlist loads but waits for the user to click on the play button.

Parameter auto_play=”1″- means that your playlist automatically starts playing the video.

Now your syntax should look like this example:

[td_block_video_youtube playlist_title="My YouYube Playlist" playlist_yt="8hAwUt8-G34, F9S49fUqbVQ, TUdVeZ1pbuc" playlist_auto_play="0"]

Click the Publish or Update button.

 

How to create a Vimeo playlist

In your post the shortcode will be this one:

[td_block_video_vimeo playlist_title="" playlist_v="" playlist_auto_play="0"]

For this step, you need to add a Title to your playlist in playlist_title=”” parameter and your videos IDs.

Newspaper Theme video playlist: Vimeo

 

To add the video’s ID to the Vimeo playlist shortcode, you have to go to Vimeo.com, click on the video you want to add to your playlist, then from the URL of the page take the video ID and paste it in the playlist_yt attribute one after another separated by commas.

Parameter auto_play=”0″ – means your playlist loads but waits for the user to click on the play button.

Parameter auto_play=”1″- means that your playlist automatically starts playing the video.

Now your syntax should look like this example:

[td_block_video_vimeo playlist_title="My Vimeo Playlist" playlist_yt="8hAwUt8-G34, F9S49fUqbVQ, TUdVeZ1pbuc" playlist_auto_play="0"]

Click the Publish or Update button.

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, please note that functionality is not available to the YouTube Playlist. All the videos will appear in the order you put them in the list.

      Thank you!

  1. Guys, you say there are no codes needed in this theme and codes are allover the place. When will you come out with a detailed A to Z tutorial for these things? We have to struggle looking for You Tube. The only guys that offers some video tutorials on you tube is that Scandinavian guy Ferdy but even his tutorials are jumpy and unclear

  2. Hi,

    We want to play a video in the background. We’re able to achieve it using YouTube API but it looks like, it is playing the SD version of the video. How do I set it to play the HD?

    Thanks in Advance

  3. I was trying to put the yt API, but could not find any such option in the social network option. I’m using newspaper version: 9.6.1

    • Hi! Thank you for reaching out. The YouTube API key is necessary to grab data from your channel and it is available starting with the Newspaper Theme version 10.3.1. If you’re using an older version than 10.3.1, the YouTube API option is not available. If you need any help to update your theme, please let us know by email at contact@tagdiv.com. We’re looking forward to assisting you. Thank you!
