YouTube Featured Video seems to fit my needs quite nicely — other than three small but still somewhat significant issues with presentation.
1) If I select “Show video title,” the video title appears in exactly the same styling as the overall widget title (font, size, underline, etc.) and they’re stacked right on top of each other (this is in wpmu-nelo by the way). That looks confusing (because there’s no visual hierarchy between widget title and video title). Is there a way to make the video title subservient to the over widget title?
2) Under the “Username or Channel” selection, is there a way to limit the feed to a particular playlist only?
3) The “Show Channel link” function works fine for a channel address, but not for the YouTube account I want to link to, which has a “youtube.com/user/…” address. Is there a way to make the plugin work for “user” address? (Alternatively, am I missing some way to change my Youtube user account address to accomodate this?)
