The eXtro Video Embedder plugin is used to embed videos from different video platforms into your Joomla article.
It supports many video platforms, embeds the videos responsive, and the best: it's free!
The following video platforms are supported:
- MP4 files
and new in V1.1.0:
The plugin can be used stand-alone by entering the tag manually into a article and providing the correct parameters - please refer to the manual how to do this.
However, it is much more fun and convenient to use the editor plugin that comes with the Video embedder.
This editor plugin makes embedding a video simply a breeze - 3 clicks and you're done!
This is how it works:
While editing a Joomla article, all you have to do is to click the 'Embed video' button to embed a video.
A lightbox popup will then open, and all you have to do is to select the video platform and enter the respective valid video ID (or the video link in case of a mp4 video).
Next, click embed to automagically create the correct plugin tag!
That's it - save your article and have a look at it in the frontend.
Here, the plugin automagically replaces the video embed tag with the actual video!
Even better - the video will be embedded responsive!
Please refer to the manual (documentation) how to get the video ID for the different video platforms.
For each of them, we provide a easy to understand description - all you need to know is how to CopyPaste!
UPDATED Version: 1.1.0
