Sync YouTube channels with your WordPress website. The YouTube Importer plugin helps to easily import YouTube videos into WordPress as posts. You can import your YouTube channel to the regular WordPress Posts or to a custom post type (with the Pro version).
The plugin can import all your YouTube videos to certain and works especially well with themes developed by SecondLineThemes
The plugin supports importing YouTube videos into existing custom post types, assign categories, import featured images and more. Additionally, the plugin enables continuous import or “Sync” of your YouTube channels, so every time you release a new YouTube video, it can be automatically imported to WordPress. You can also set multiple import schedules and import different YouTube videos from separate channels at the same time.
To use the plugin, simply run a new import under “Tools -> YouTube Importer” via the main sidebar that appears in your WordPress dashboard. Set the different options and if you need a continuous import process for future posts, make sure to hit that checkbox before running the import process.
You can disable a schedueld import at any time by simply deleting the import entry under the “Scheduled Imports” tab.
