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.

The plugin is excellent, but you have to know that it doesn't work in legacy mode.

All I needed for my site was a simple clean way to pull in Youtube videos. This plugin was just that. It took less time to install and setup then it did to read all of the reviews.

Thanks for making a plugin that was not overly complicated and did what was needed well the first time.

This is a 'must have' for users wanting to add YouTube videos to your site. It is a snap to install and the end result is beautiful! I really appreciate the ability to display the videos in my playlist, not just a single video. Plus, the video thumbnails in my playlist are displayed in a very attractive and dynamic manner.

I am a neophyte setting up my first Joomla system. This plugin was trivial to install, and very easy to use. We now have two videos embedded in our pages--total time required was half an hour to convince myself this was the answer, plus ten minutes to install the plugin and put links into the pages.

No frills, perfectly workable, super-easy. I installed and immediately used it at 3 am on a deadline.

I'd love to be able to link a thumbnail image to the video, but that's not a fault of this extension, which works as advertised quite well.

Very simple and no fuss. Install, turn on and then embed the video into your articles.

Thank you for this plugin - has worked first time and every time.

You may need to explain how to get the You Tube ID for any given video for very newbies.

You Tube gives you all this code to embed:

In this example the 1YwvUpz6A6c is the ID.

{youtube}1YwvUpz6A6c{/youtube} is what goes in your article (after you have installed the plugin that is)
