This plugin does exactly what it's supposed to do, and is extremely easy to use. I have tried a few ones with the same purpose, and have to say 'Simple YouTube Responsive' is by far the best. I'm really happy I found out about it. Last but not least, the developer is very kind and answers promptly 🙂 I definitely recommend this plugin to anyone interested in showcasing YouTube videos on their WP website in the easiest way possible!

This plugin worked as advertised right out of the box. Worked perfectly on the page and perfectly in a sidebar. Exactly what we needed.
