Automatically Add Subscribe Link to Each YouTube Embed Video in WordPress

Advertisement

Many of you already know about my tech blog Techlomedia and Techlomedia Gadgets. For these, I also make videos of gadgets and embed in articles. Many times, I also embed other people’s videos in the articles. Recently, I saw that few big websites are using a kind of plugin to add Subscribe button just below the video and it really helps in converting viewers into Subscribers.

I thought to do the same and started searching for plugins. I found one but it didn’t work. So, I thought to code it by myself and it was a simple less than 5 minutes of effort to achieve the desired result.

See the featured image to know how it looks on my website.

If you also want to add something similar, I am adding the code snippet below.

Here, you only need to replace the data-channel with the username of your channel. You can also make changes in the style thing to customize it.

Even if the code is written in javascript, I have not tested it on any other platform except WordPress. It should work on other platforms as well. You only need to check the video container selector. video-container is the primary selector I used. If your platform is using something else, change it accordingly.

I have not yet made any plugin for this due to lack of time and I am not sure how many of you are really interested in that. If you want me to write a WordPress plugin for the same, you can comment below. I will surely consider of writing a plugin for this.
