Displaying Youtube Video Within an Article or Module (Joomla! 3.x)

The "AllVideos (by JoomlaWorks)" plugin allows you to display a link to a video within an article or module and have it play directly on your web site. 

This procedure assumes the video has already been uploaded to YouTube.  You will need the URL for the video in order to proceed. 

The process is similar to embed a video hosted on a web site other than YouTube.  Consult the AllVideos documentation to get the correct tags to use (in place of the tags "{ youtube }" and "{ /youtube }" referenced in the below procedure).

Displaying a Video within an Article

  • Select an article to edit following steps 1-3 of Editing Articles (Joomla! 3.x), or create a new article.
  • Click somewhere within the Custom Output text box and type or paste the YouTube URL for the video you want to display.
  • Enter the code "{ youtube }" (without spaces or quotation marks) before the YouTube URL.
  • Enter the code "{ /youtube }" (without spaces or quotation marks) after the YouTube URL:

    Youtube Link
  • If you are editing the article from the front end of the web site, click the Save button to the upper left to save your changes.
  • If you are working in the Joomla! Administrator, to save your changes and continue editing the article, click the Save button to the upper left: Save button
  • If you are working in the Joomla! Administrator, when you are done editing the article, click the Save & Close button to the upper left: Save & Close button
