How Do I Add Random YouTube Videos in WordPress Sidebar?

From the WordSprung Blog:

Q: I am after a YouTube plugin for a widget. What I want to do is have a YouTube video that randomly rotates between three/four videos in the side bar. Is there one?

A: While it was created for serving ads, Datafeedr Random Ads, should do the trick for you. We’ve used it for images in the past and it does exactly what we needed it to.

Installation Instructions

  1. Upload the plugin files to your plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin
  3. Go to Tools > Datafeedr Random Ads
  4. Create an Ad Group (a set of ads that you want to rotate)
  5. Place a widget in your sidebar or template code in your template files
