Embed YouTube Videos in Joomla 2.5 and 3

YouTube Embedder

Displaying YouTube videos is one of the most popular things you can do with your Joomla site.

Our YouTube Embedder plugin is the fastest and easiest way to do it. All you need to do is add the URL of the video into your articles.

We've just released a completely free version of YouTube Embedder for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. Here's how it works ...

Installation

  • Go to the YouTube Embedder download page.
  • In your Joomla site, go to the Extension Manage and upload YouTube Embedder.
  • Go to Extension Manager > Plugin Manager and enable the plugin.
  • Inside the plugin you can set the default height and width for the videos.
