While you always take a chance with smaller plugins that support will be less than optimal, support for this plugin as always been fantastic! The gallery works great and looks awesome. So glad I found it!

The plugin gives you an excellent control over the customisation of the thumbnail settings. And more importantly, the service in solving your queries by the plugin owner is way beyond 🙂

Thank you very much for adding YouTube compatibility, now I can create a beautiful gallery of selected videos that I can expand. In doing so, I got a very high rate of my page speed. Because embedding the video (by YouTube Block) on my page slowed things down a lot.
