.TUBE Video Curator Plugin for WordPress

The .TUBE Video Curator Plugin for WordPress is a fast, easy way to create WordPress posts from YouTube and Vimeo videos.

With the .TUBE Video Curator Plugin you can search for users, channels, and playlists, bulk import existing videos as new posts, and even auto-import new videos as posts so you can “set it and forget it.”

The plugin is designed to work great with the .TUBE Theme, but it should also play nicely with nearly any theme. Plus, point-and-click display and import options let you customize the player, video placement, and import settings with no coding.
