You have to add permissions by Group (under the standard AdminCP Member/Groups) in order to access this.
Note: even Administrators will need to have permission turned on to access application, that's what you're seeing.

Please post in the Support Topic to at least give the author a reasonable chance to reply before posting a negative review.


My Review (running on 4.3.5)

This is a really nice application!!!

It's great for creating a page of embedded Youtube videos. I consider it very nice that if you add a non-Youtube video it will still add it, and the user can click the link to it...it just won't embed it...however it does leave a blank space for a picture. Now maybe (probably?) being able to do this was an unintentional feature, but I definitely am glad it's there...and if it would show a generic video icon that would be really nice.

Please add support for the star-rating system at least, and ideally "comments" as well. That would really take it over the top!!!

Also, I think on the programming side it's very easy to add "Vimeo" support in addition to Youtube (something to consider).

Tips: Aside from adding Group permissions in Member/Groups, for those who've not had the experience (just like all the other YouTube embeds in any plugin/app for IPS I've seen) you do need to change the YouTube URL into the "embed" style URL. And, you'll need to add this application to your menu (it doesn't get added automatically).
