    Hi! 🙂 Is it possible to show more then 50 Videos in this Plugin?
    I used this Code:
    [Youtube_Channel_Gallery feed="playlist" user="PLNjWgHYsZ2yx8prutggfflZf0Q4BMfvMC" videowidth="580" ratio="16×9" theme="dark" color="red" autoplay="0" rel="0" showinfo="0" maxitems="100" thumbwidth="133" thumbratio="16×9" thumbcolumns="4" title="1" description="0" thumbnail_alignment="top" descriptionwordsnumber="6" link="1"]

    Not working for me. I am trying to load a news channel on youtube so that the most recent video will appear. I get this code onscreen:

    Error type: "Forbidden". Error message: "The referrer https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/playlistItems?part=snippet,status&playlistId=PL0hKMB1-xkc-XWNf9VL-LxVYysdHpjyMF&maxResults=8&key=AIzaSyB5dD9e79cNzqtSB3OYLlFBDUvIfslKoi4 does not match the referrer restrictions configured on your API key. Please use the API Console to update your key restrictions." Domain: "usageLimits". Reason: "ipRefererBlocked".

    Did you added your own Google API key? Look at the help.

    Check in YouTube if the id PL0hKMB1-xkc-XWNf9VL-LxVYysdHpjyMF belongs to a playlist. Check the FAQ of the plugin or send error messages to support.

    The id DOES identify the playlist I am trying to load.

    I did not see the gallery option, only add one video, at a time. It is also just called Video, no YouTube Video option. How to get that?
