Joomla! content plugin to add YouTube videos inside an article.

YouTube (EU Privacy) is a Joomla! content plugin to add YouTube videos inside an article.

YouTube provides free video-hosting, this plugin allows to simple embed YouTube videos inside articles, in the extended privacy mode. There are options to define custom covers and playerparameters. By default it is setup for EU Privacy. This means the YouTube extended privacy mode ('youtube-nocookie' iframe url) and a special two-click solution to embed the frame not before clicking to your cover. Recommended for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. If you don't wish the EU Privacy mode, extended privacy can also be specified at plugin settings. The other settings can be setup for each video through our snipped parameters.

Please take note of the privacy policy of your country. We provide no liability for legal correctness!

For extended usage it is possible to define iframe parameter (width, heigth, class and framborder),
img parameter (width, heigth and class),
as well as any YouTube Player url parameters (autoplay, size, etc..
