Youtube video gallery

Yowaraj Chhetri asked on June 15, 2018 02:27

Hi, How to create a youtube video gallery such that the youtube landing page will list all the videos (child page) and when user clicks any item, it will take them to the details video page. The detail video page is a two column layout where details are show in left with video itself and related video are shown on right(this is done by webpart retrieving by tag names, etc). I was thinking to create a page type called "youtube page" where in the form tab, insert the video url in "youtube url" filed in form tab and it will retrieve video details from youtube such as title, description,etc. and prefills form tab fields with those retrieved information. However, I dont know how to retrieve youtube video details by providing url in the form tab field (youtube url). Or are there other ways to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

You will either have to manually enter those data (title, description, etc.) manually or you will have to use YouTube API to pull them into CMS using event handler.

You may also want to check YouTube's API to see if you can just build a custom web part to pull your play list direct from YT.
