Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any new features planned?

Absolutely! With the release of our Pro version we are focusing on bringing some advanced new features to fit your needs. Because the Pro version and core version run together, we can speed up the release cycle and create a more robust experience for everyone.

Is there any setup required?

YouTube now requires an API key which can be created for free on the Google Developers Console.

For Vimeo you’ll also need an API key. Log in then visit this page. Click “Create a new app”, then add a name, description, and your site’s URL. Once you agree to the terms and click “Create app”, you’ll be able to copy and paste your Client ID and Client Secret into the Refactored Video Importer section in your WordPress settings.

While you’re in the settings you can also enter your license key to enable automatic updates for the Pro version.
