Social Frames Setup

It takes a lot of repeatable work to add videos manually to Frames’ playlists. More so if you want to show new videos – you have to add them everyday or so. To make this easier, we created Social Frames.  Tell Social Frames where you want to show latest videos from, sit back and watch your visitors enjoying fresh content on you own site.

You can stream videos from YouTube playlists, channel uploads and search terms, Facebook user and Vimeo category, search and user.

You’ll have to create API keys for all these sites. We’ve provided our own YouTube API key to make it easy for you to get started, please create your own after checking the plugin.
