Hello,

I managed to put the thumbnails on the side of the video instead of on the side, but my question is how can I have it so that the thumbnails scroll up and down if I have several videos in my playlist?

the other question I have is if the player counts the views and reports them back to youtube. lets say the videos are viewed in my website instead of YouTube will it still count as a viewed?

Thank you.
Roberto.

I'm finally back and relatively settled. I sincerely apologize for the huge delay - this move took much more out of me than I had anticipated.

We should be able to simply tweak your site's CSS to get a scrolling effect. Could you send along a link to your gallery so I could take a look?

Yes, any time a video is viewed it's considered "counted", whether it's embedded in your website or watched on youtube.com.

Thanks!

Thank you for your response.

this is the link: http://jessicadominguez.com/site
I want to put more than 3 videos here and be able to scroll down the thumbnails.

on the video counter: is there a limit on how much does the video has to play to be considered as a count? or if it's viewed from the same IP addess does it still counts if I view the video as many times as I want? I just want to make sure I got it right because it seems it's not counting the views.

Thank you.
Roberto.

Hi Roberto,

You'll need to make a simple CSS change to make your thumbnails scroll. This is accomplished by changing the "overflow-y" attribute of the "tubepress_thumbnail_area" CSS class:

.tubepress_thumbnail_area  {
    overflow-y: scroll;
}
As described in the docs, you'll want to make this change in a CSS file external to TubePress so that your changes aren't wiped out when you upgrade. Does that make sense? Let me know if you have questions on how to do this.

Thanks!
