  1. WoW this is Fantastic !
    youmax 2 shows "liked videos" but this does not ?
    How can I turn it on ?

    1. Sorry, but what "liked videos" is Youmax showing ? Could you send me a screenshot?

      Didn't really understand the question :/

    2. check out this =>

    3. Ah, ok. You see "Liked videos" is just the name of your playlist -

      You can just add this playlist in the playlist array of Youmax 4.0 and it will show up.
      Let me know if you face any problems displaying that with Youmax 4 :)

    4. Ok thanks Jake I will try soon

  2. hi i bought this script but not work my website linke is can you help me ?

    1. This is a demo script. The complete script is available after you download it from Evanto

  3. Hi. Will there be a search function so the user can search through the videos on the channel?

    1. Yes, we have a couple of similar requests. We are planning to add it in future versions. The next release will take some time though, a couple of weeks for sure.

  4. Hi,
    Not Update Video " Like, View, Subscribere "..
    Video open in My site then not update, but video open in directly on youtube that time add viewer..

    1. Hi There,

      I did not understand what you meant but can you please share the link of your page where you have problems?

      Also if you can directly comment on the CodeCanyon page of Youmax, you will get the direct developer support :)


      This is my Page..
      I have click on Video, than after video open in Pop..
      Than after Total Viewer & Particular Video viewer not increase..
      same video i have open directly on youtube that time increase viewer..

  5. Hi, is it possible to embed a Private Youtube Channel? How about Single Sign On? Thanks

  6. People won't be able to view your private channel if you embed it using any plugin.

    We have a plan to add OAuth login for users in the future versions of Youmax. With this, users will have to log into their Google account and only then they will be able to view it.

    Thank You for the suggestion :)

  7. Hi there help please
    I bought the script earlier and copied the code from the generator into my page but it's not showing up.
    inspect element tells me theres an error:
    Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function
    its pointing me to the big line of code.
    Have I missed something?
    much thanks in advance

    1. scratch that,
      the problem was all my end,
      1, I called the scripts in the wrong place
      2, I'd given the script the wrong api key
      awesome script thaks very much for writing it.
      oly question i have remaining is how best to use the 'mysearch' tab, whats its purpose?

    2. I checked out your link and I see everything is working fine.

      The MySearch tab can be used to specify a search criteria. All videos matching that criteria will be displayed in a Tab :)

  8. Hi, there help please,

    I have click on Video, than after video open in Pop Up properly but than after No. of Viewer not Increase..
    Same video I have open directly on youtube that time No. of Viewer Increase..
    Have I missed something?
    Please help me..
    Below Script add..


    Please reply as soon as possibal..

    1. Hello Pragnesh,

      That is because your videos are being autoplayed when a thumbnail is clicked. YouTube sometimes does not record views on autoplay videos.

      1. So you can either remove the "&autoplay=1" from the script code, so that users will click the play button to initiate the video.

      2. Or you can wait for 3-4 days, after which we are releasing the next update for Youmax ie 5.0. We will add an option in this script to enable autoplay or not.

      Also, please note that it takes some time for YouTube to count the embedded video count. It does not happen in real time.


    2. Hi Jake..
      Thank for Positive Reply..
      I will wait for your next update for Youmax 5.0..

  9. Hi Jake,

    Is it possible to have a video open on page load? I'd like the first video in the playlist and then the list of thumbnails below if possible.


    1. Hi Andy,

      As of right now it will be possible only by modifying the source. Please give us some time and we will add an option to display the first video on load :)

    2. Hi Jake,

      Is it something I can pay you to do?

      - Andy

    3. Don't worry about it. The feature will be added anyway. Please give us a couple of days. Youmax 5.0 is being released probably in this week and we will add this feature to it ..

    4. Crikey, that's brilliant.


  10. I'm having a difficult time getting this version working. I had a previous Youmax version working no problem on my blogger but nothing I try gets this version to display. I bought the YouMax 5.0 file, uploaded to Google Drive, but I think I'm having issues in placement of the coding? Everything should be in the template HTML, and then just use the new DIV tag
    where I want it to appear? It doesn't show up no matter where I place it and I'm at a oss and aboutto go back to the old version, but I really wanted the mobile scaling of the new one.

    1. Well, that is actually not a problem with Youmax.

      The URL format of your files hosted on Google Drive is not correct.

      For Example -
      should be

      Hello Sir,

      I Have try and show display this menu..

      but not display properly..
      Have I missed Something?

    6. I have installed the plugin on your WordPress. Can you please confirm if this is working now ?

    7. Hello Jake,

      - I have add to this code but only remove playlists tab, upload tab as it is.

      - In video detail "view | months ago" its not work proper, i have add video 1week ago than also show 1 months ago, in youtube the show perfect but in Youmax not proper.

      so, please help for this issue.

    8. Hello,

      1. Resent you the code to hide Uploads Tab now via email.

      2. "1 month" is currently the minimum time difference the script calculates. So any video added in the last month will show 1 month ago. This will be fixed very soon.

  12. Hello, I have a problem. When you click to sign up for this channel by the plugin opening another page and not just a pop-up to the person to login and return to the site. how to solve?

    1. Hello Thiago, Are you talking about the Green Subscribe button functionality ?

      If yes, then that is a pure YouTube component. We cannot change its functionality because its entirely up to YouTube to decide how it should work :)

  13. Hi,

    If you create channel pages that you do not own, but use a registered API...can you charge users to access certain pages?

    Sorry if this doesn't make sense, neither do the API documents about Ads and Subscriptions on the Google API docs.

    1. Apologies for the late reply.

      Yes, as per the API Terms, you should not have Ads on pages containing audio-visual (video player) content from Youtube.

      However, that being said, there are a lot of website that embed YouTube players and videos and have Ads in their Sidebars. This is fine because they have their own blog content along with the video player on the page.
