Exceptional Experience

Posted on 29 November 2015
I have used many but this has provided me the most functional features with ease of use.
Ease of use
It's the simplest on the available version. You just need to copy the module and point to your playlist. This is as easy as you can think of
Support has been great and prompt.
This is one thing probably could improve for the newer customers otherwise I never had any issues with it.
Value for money
Worth it. I would buy more extensions if needed from the developer.
I used this to: I have used this for Joomla 1.5 and have been extremely happy.
All the features I needed
Ease of use
Very easy to use
Excellent - a minor problem after an update was fixed by return email
The documentation on Omar's website covers everything needed. The mouseovers for each field in the module provides extra help.
Value for money
Good value for money. Happy to support developers who provide responsive support.
I used this to: Showing a YouTube Channel on a teaching association's home page.
I was looking for an extension to automatically display the latest YouTube video of a particular channel and this module do that.

Installation and configuration was easy, unfortunately there is no provision to disable YouTube's related and recommended videos - these are the videos YouTube loads after the video playback. I contacted the developer for help but never got an answer.

I rate this extension as good but no support.

Great stuff

Just what I was looking for, does exactly what it says on the tin and a very helpful quick to respond developer.

Only too happy to use his extensions again.

Many thanks.
This extension has cut down the prep work to get YouTube going with multiple choices. Simply Easy to add a playlist1 module position or playlist400. I use it after creating my own playlist to feed the articles instead of counting own subcribing to random video users. It makes it easy to control from your own playlist any deleted content. A Perfect solution for managing and displaying accurate videos. The support is five stars too.
A really good value extension. Easy to install and use, but the main strenght is customer support: I have written twice to the developer to ask for customizations and every time I got what I needed in a very short time. Highly recommended.
This works right out of the box, and is very easy to customize. I made one minor change to the core files to take the title out. The videos weren't ordering how I liked, so I emailed support and they actually sent me a modified version of the extension with the options I asked for. I couldn't believe it. This is the first extension (of hundreds) that I have ever left a review for, but I felt the need to after they went the extra mile.
I was porting my 1.5 site to 2.5 and I needed to insert videos from my YouTube Channel. I tried a lot of extensions, but only this one is clear, simple and does what it promises for a little amount
