-Automatically checks your youTube channel and creates an article each time you upload a new video which saves you a ton of time if you upload a lot of videos.

-Options to have a intro for the article or not, option to limit the characters of the intro. Option to include the video in the main area or not.

-Player size options for intro video and main video.

-Have AutoTube automatically publish the articles or not.

-You can customize the display of the videos and text even further since you can change the CSS of the videos and text in the article. You can edit the css file for the extension and perfect the way your content is displayed within the article and it is automatically applied instead of having to edit the css of each video after its imported.

-Easy to use

-Works correctly, I didn't experience any bugs.

-The developer is extremely nice and answered my emails within a short timeframe and always got back to me.


-The price is a little steep.

-Will not create K2 articles, you will have to use K2's import function to constantly import the articles. But to do this is not easy because if you don't delete the old joomla articles before importing into K2 again you will get duplicates BUT if you do delete the articles AutoTube will recreate the same articles over again. So you will have keep 2 versions of each articles one with joomlas default system and one on K2's which causes a huge issue because then you will always have duplicates when you import into K2 and will have to go through and delete all of them in K2 every time.

-Can only create articles into 1 category. It would be nice if you could grab videos from certain playlists and have those articles created in certain categories depending on the playlist.

So if you have a lot of different videos ( Which is why you are probably using this in the first place ) you would probably want to categorize them instead of having all your videos in one category, which unfortunately you cannot do at the moment. This makes it so you have to set AutoTube not to automatically publish the articles and go through and change the category for each article which makes extra work and makes using AutoTube not as worthwhile.

*OVERALL CONCLUSION: AutoTube is a great extension that has the potential to save you a lot of work if you do not want to use K2 to display your video articles. if you want multiple categories you don't save as much time as you could since it only supports creating articles in one category but Its still helpful even if you do want your videos in more than one category as you are still saving a lot of time not having to actually create the articles.

What AutoTube does it does well and without error. It has plenty of options to style the content however you want with the options for turning off or on the intro or the main video and the option to use custom CSS. The ability to customize the way it displays the content is a big plus and makes this extension much more useful.

It is a little pricey for for the options it has but if you are looking for something to automatically create articles for you with your YouTube videos then this is your Best bet right now.

It could use some more features like K2 support and more than 1 category but what it does have is done very well and will save you time. If those two features were added this would be a perfect extension and completely worth the asking price.

Overall this is a great little extension that can save you a lot of time depending on what your needs are.

If you have the money to spend and want to easily and quickly create many articles with your videos in them and do not mind changing the article categories if you need to than go ahead and pick this extension up and save yourself some time and work.

I hope the developer keeps working on this extension as it really is very useful.

I won't be using it anymore as I have since switched to WordPress to develop my site but if I was still using Joomla I would be using this extension still.

Autotube is simple, but it saves me a ton of time. Took about 2 seconds to set up, and it's added around 500 videos from my YouTube channel as articles. I publish videos for my business, and it's awesome to have articles created automatically. Great job!

I love using Auto Tube. It takes the difficulty out of publishing everything myself. I don't want to think of how much time I wasted not using Auto Tube. ugh! I just wish I would have found it sooner. It is such an easy install and even the less computer savvy can use! I am an avid supporter of Auto Tube. Highly recommend getting yours to make your own life much easier!

This was a super simple install and exceeded my expectations of what it could do. I am recommending to everyone I know, a very user-friendly product. Thank you Autotube! You have simplified what used to take me forever!

Works perfectly

I have a blog that auto-publishes youtube videos once a week. Works like a charm - I never have to think about it. Easy set up, good config options. I did make a couple of custom changes to the article content.

I publish videos every day. It's a daunting task to create an article for each video. You don't know how much time it is saving me. THANK YOU!

Need the {.....}

Posted on 26 September 2011

Seems a great plugin, but which code {....} Must I to use?


Owner's reply: Hi Boris, thanks for your message. You don't need to use any { } code - the plugin runs automatically to create new articles in your Joomla system, with embedded Youtube video and description.

I take it correctly the section, making only the category and therefore not shown in the home, but good

This plugin would appreciate if you fixed.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review! Just to confirm - the sections and categories are now correctly integrated, so new youtube videos automatically generate a new article in the correct section and category.

Have you built a Joomla site? Do you now want to import content to it, but don't want to spend hours and hours copying over all your old pages? Use HTML 2 Articles to import all your HTML page content to Joomla - in just seconds per page. HTML 2 Articles was designed to import HTML pages to Joomla as easily and as painlessly as possible. You can import HTML sites from 1 page to 10,000 pages with just a few clicks. Just queue the HTML pages for import, sit back, and let it work. HTML 2 Articles will import the content from HTML pages to Joomla almost instantly. Each individual HTML page creates a new Joomla article. The new article is saved to your Joomla article manager and can be used exactly as a normal article. As far as is possible, all of your configurations, metatags, keywords, content structures, titles, images and links are preserved and imported, converted to UTF-8 format for optimal Joomla integration, and saved to your Joomla system. Each article takes an average of just 20 seconds to import and process - which includes import of your images, W3C validation, and conversion of your HTML content to UTF-8 encoding. Imported pages take on your Joomla template structure and stylesheets, and you can specify the category to which you wish to import the new articles. You can even queue hundreds of HTML files at a time for import, and leave it running until import is complete. During import, each file's content is automatically processed and fully integrated with your Joomla install.

Search & Replace for Joomla!

The original Search & Replace component for Joomla - now updated to work with K2! Got an external link that you need changed in every page? No problem! Just search for it and replace it with the new link. You can search and replace any content in your articles in seconds. Search & Replace for Joomla is used to search & replace content in your Joomla articles. You can search for any word, HTML, or content, and replace it with whatever you like. Changes are stored directly in the database itself, which vastly speeds up page load time compared to other available components and plugins. Using this component you can quickly search & replace to add links, change spellings, cross-reference your pages, bulk update your content and so forth. Search & Replace can change content in Titles, Introductions, Main Content, or a selection of those - all at the same time. You can also select which categories to include in the search, and if the search finds any results, it will give you a list of the pages where the search term exists, along with links to view the page in your browser. Please note: Search & Replace does not affect the HTML stored in your template files. If you need to search & replace HTML content in your template files, please edit your template files directly. This component is extremely powerful, so please back up your database before you use it. How to use: 1. Create a backup of your database 2. Enter the text to search for 3. Enter the text to replace your search string 4. Press Search to search for page results 5. Press Replace to update your database & make all changes 6. Check your site for changes. Tips 1. Keep it simple. Longer search strings sometimes match less cases - often due to variances in whitespace 2. Disable your Joomla cache while you make changes so that you can instantly see what has been changed. 3. Look in the HTML source of your target page to select and paste the exact content you want to search & replace. 4. Sometimes text is rendered in your browser differently to the way it is stored in the database. The key to successful searches is to keep search phrases short and simple. I hope you find the component useful. Any comments or suggestions are very welcome, and where possible, suggestions will be incorporated into new versions of the component.
