Video Galleries

A curated video library on a website can entertain, educate, and engage visitors like no other medium. TubePress empowers website owners to enrich their sites with beautiful, interactive video galleries. You can embed video libraries of any size into any website. Simply need to select a source of the videos, then customize the look and behavior of the resulting gallery.

This is very different than embedding a single video to your website. That's easy; all major video hosts allow anyone to copy-paste a snippet of HTML for embedding the single video player. But adding a gallery of videos is a surprisingly difficult technical challenge. TubePress handles all the heavy lifting and dirty work on your behalf, freeing you to focus on what you do best.

If you haven't already read the introduction to TubePress, we recommend that you do so now.

How it Works

You create a gallery by telling TubePress:

  • the sources of the videos (e.g. a YouTube playlist, or uploads from a Vimeo user)
     
  • the look and behavior of the resulting gallery
     
  • where on the page that you want your gallery to appear
     

That's it! TubePress will fetch the videos from the host and display them on your site. The software will monitor your video sources for updates (new videos, deletions, edits, etc) and automatically reflect any changes on your website. You can add unlimited galleries to your site, each configured independently from the next.

Video Sources

TubePress can work with videos hosted on YouTube, Dailymotion, or Vimeo. We are actively adding more video hosts over time. We do not support self-hosted videos as there are increasingly few reasons to do so; by hosting your videos with the "big guys," you can take advantage of better bandwidth and an always-updated video player that works across all devices.

For each video host (YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, etc), TubePress can read from any of the twenty four individual sources listed below. For each source, you can control the sort order of the videos (e.g. newest first, most-viewed first, etc).

YouTube
  • a YouTube playlist
  • favorite videos for a given user/channel
  • videos matching a search term
  • videos uploaded to a specified channel
  • a comma-separated list of YouTube video IDs that you'd like to display
  • videos related to a YouTube video
Vimeo
  • videos uploaded by a Vimeo user
  • a Vimeo album
  • a Vimeo category
  • a Vimeo channel
  • a Vimeo group
  • videos matching a search term
  • videos tagged with a term
  • videos in which a given Vimeo user appears
  • "likes" for a Vimeo user
Dailymotion
  • favorites for a Dailymotion user
  • videos from a user that have been "featured" by Dailymotion
  • a comma-separated list of Dailymotion video IDs
  • a Dailymotion playlist
  • videos related to a Dailymotion video
  • videos matching a search term
  • videos from a user's subscriptions
  • videos tagged with a given term
  • videos uploaded by a Dailymotion user

Mult-Source Galleries

A single TubePress gallery can be fed from multiple sources. We call this feature "multi-source galleries." The way it works is TubePress reads from the individual sources and combines the videos into a single, unified gallery. You can even combine videos from separate providers into a single gallery! No other video gallery software can make this claim. Here are some examples of multi-source galleries that you could create:

  • multiple YouTube playlists
     
  • your YouTube uploads + your Vimeo uploads
     
  • a search across Dailymotion, YouTube, and Vimeo for videos matching the search term "bob's wedding videography"
     

For each of these examples, TubePress will seamlessly merge the videos into a single gallery. TubePress can also perform "per-page" sorting on the gallery to honor your requested sort order.
