Advanced Custom Fields: YouTube Field

Syncs up with the YouTube API to give you an awesome amount of flexibility.


Note: Latest version (1.2) works with the YouTube Data API v3 and requires an API key.

This is an add-on field for the Advanced Custom Fields plugin. This field allows you to capture YouTube data from a single input field. You or your clients can enter in either the full YouTube URL or just the YouTube Video ID. In the admin, you’ll instantly be presented with the video so you can make sure you have linked up the correct one.


The YouTube Video field has 6 different return values: Embed, Video Object, YouTube ID, URL, Thumbnail, Thumbnail Object. The Video Object pings the YouTube API to get you specific information about the video like Title, Description, Number of Views and more.

acf-youtube-field-adminThis is a great WordPress plugin for developers as it gives a quick start when clients ask to add videos and don’t exactly know how to do it. This way you can simply give them a field and almost no matter what they insert you’ll be able to grab the YouTube ID.


Email support included for 1 year. Through email, I can help fix issues and bugs. I am also willing to help with small layout issues like responsive design sizing help or colors, however, bigger change requests will require additional fees.

This plugin works with Advanced Custom Fields version 4 and 5.
