Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any new features planned?

Yes! While we can’t share any details yet, we’re excited to build around the needs of our users, so your feedback is encouraged.

Is there any setup required?

Video Importer works with YouTube right away, but for Vimeo you’ll need to grab 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 (only required for plugin updates) and adjust the maximum number of videos to import from each source.
