So far so good. Essentially you just need to post a standard URL without all the junk at the end to get this to work right.



The price was small so I jumped at this module. I was trying to use JA Popup to do the same thing, but I had no end of misery getting it to function properly. This plugin was the solution I needed.



It isn't difficult to figure out how everything works, however an example would be useful as you need to strip the junk off the end of the youtube URL. Very excellent so far.


I was looking for an extension that would let me display thumbnails of videos in a list view that would then play the video on an article page or in a modal popup, but which also allowed me to put the thumbnail with my own text, rather than the Youtube summary (so it can be more easily translated using JoomFish).



I was starting to despair before finding this plugin, but it does exactly that. You can save each video as a separate article, together with your accompanying text, so there's no messing about with playlists or xml files, you're just using the Joomla core, so can control the number of items appearing in your list, and the paging.



It uses the full URL to the Youtube video rather than the more standard , so you do have to be a little careful if you're using JCE, which will convert full URLs to links if you don't enter them in code view or with the JCE visual editor turned off. If you leave them as links, then the thumbnails will appear twice with a little leftover HTML showing. But, as it's a one-click operation to unlink again in JCE, that's not too big a deal for me.



The plugin gives control over the size of the thumbnails on the page and the video in the modal popup, which script to use for the popup, and whether or not to load that javascript library (thoughtful, and useful for avoiding jQuery problems with multiple versions), the overlay colour and opacity, and Youtube controls, so there's a fair bit of flexibility. It's not possible to override global settings on a video-by-video basis (as you can with AllVideos), but again that's not an issue for me as I like consistency, anyway.



The developer responded very quickly to a bug that I reported, and I had a fix the following day, which augurs well for support.



A great little plugin at a very reasonable price!

This content plugin creates lightbox galleries with the help of following javascript libraries: jQuery, Mootools, Colorbox, Fancybox, Greybox, Shadobox, Slimbox2, Slimbox, Joomla modal (Squeezebox). You just need to insert the fullsize image (what will be shown in the lightbox) and resize it in your content editor. The plugin automatically creates modal links from the resized images, and saves the thumbnail pictures too, for faster loading of images.
