I don't know exactly how to explain this but I would like to have a Youtube widget or something on my wordpress blog that displays the videos that I make all in one place.

I searched the plugins for one but I'm not entirely sure that I came across what I'm looking for. But here is a site that I found that has the youtube bar on the side, and I'm looking for something along the lines of that.

Makeup and Beauty Blog: Makeup Reviews, Beauty Tips and Drugstore Beauty Finds

Anyone know where I can find that ^^^ or what I could use in place of it instead that is similar?

    It is actually very easy to do that. Here is how:

    Log into your admin area in wordpress.

    2. Go to appearance then click on widgets

    3. Add a text widget to the side bar

    4. go to youtube abd get the embed code

    5. add the embed code to the text area

    6. in the embed code, you will see the size/dimentions of the video. re-size it so that it fits in your sidebar

    7. save and you are done

    8. preview your site

    hope that helps

        Code:
        <br />
        Insert a "break" tag (above) between each video and encase each video within <div></div> tags, viz

        <div style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;">
        [YOUR VIDEO CODE]
        </div>

        to center each video horizontally within your sidebar.

    Yep, adding a text widget to the sidebar and embedding the videos there works perfectly. Just make sure to separate the videos with a break. Keep it up and good luck to you!

    From all of the suggestions, it looks like there is not an actual video directory add-on for wordpress? Where the video directory can have its on categories, and you do not have to put extra code in?

    If you have a couple of videos, what being suggested on this page is fine. But what about if you have over 300 or 400 videos? I do not want to take the time to code in over 300 videos by hand.
