YouTube Popular Plugin

YouTube plugin is the best, simplest and the most popular Youtube plugin! Youtube plugin now supports versions 2.5 and 3.0!

This simple little YouTube plugin will display the YouTube Flash player in your articles when inserting the YouTube ID for chosen Youtube video, Youtube playlist or Youtube custom player, between a starting youtube tag and an ending youtube tag. Both defined with brackets (simple instruction is included when you install the youtube plugin).

YouTube Version 1.1 no longer removes title, author etc. from articles!

YouTube Plugin now supports Joomla! versions 2.5 and 3.0 as well as versions 1.5,1.6 and 1.7.

Have support for single Youtube videos, Youtube playlists and custom Youtube players, and the appearance/functionality of the youtube player is customizable through various parameters.

The HTML output can be rendered as plain HTML (the default when embedding videos from YouTube) or as a mix of HTML and JavaScript through SWFObject. The latter is recommended, as it removes that pesky “click to activate and use this control” from Internet Explorer, among other things.

The Youtube plugin includes language support through .ini files (English, German and Norwegian included).


Please notice: Youtube playlist will be included soon to 2.5 and 3.0 versions. We will also upgrade the Youtube plugin to have SSL support.

This plugin was both easy to install, and works perfectly. There is a global setting which allows you to choose the width and height of all videos streamed on your site, a feature not found in another plugin which is why I chose this one. I changed the width to 560 and the height to 345, and now videos are virtually centred for the best viewer experience. I couldn't be happier with this plugin! I highly recommend it.

Lovely little plugin that does what it says it will do. I thoroughly recommend it in place of the existing media 'plugin' in Joomla which I can never seem to get working.

One small point, remember that the code is the Youtube ID only and not the path.

It does what it says in a very simple and understandable way. Nice addition to any joomla site.

Hope someday to see it preinstalled in joomla installation.

I just want to add that you have to enable the plugin after installation (press the red button to green) for it to take effect.

Really wonderful! thanks!

Well. That just works, is a breeze to configure and simple enough to use that my end-users can figure it out. Added to my essential plugins toolbox!

So simple - just like an extension should be! Easy set up with a good range of parameters easily able to be changed.

Would like the option (if possible) to locate the video left, right or center of the article it's in. The normal text formatting options in articles don't seem to work.

This is an easy plugin and does what exactly it says: "Embed YouTube Video"...
You can set the width/height/color.. But I couldn't figure out a way to word wrap the text around the Plugin until I wrote this in the Height text box {198" style="align:left;vspace:2;hspace:4;" align="left} without curly brackets.

It seems to wrap, but the vspace, hspace seems to get ignored... Anyway I can add this?
