These instructions describe how to "embed" a YouTube hosted video into an article page using the "AllVideos" Joomla plugin. 

Embed Video - Basic Settings

  1. Go to youtube.com to find the video.
  2. Pause the video.
  3. Get the ID of the video.  This will look something like  "oXYMG5LOQ2Q".
  4. Use the syntax below to embed the video.

{ youtube }VideoID{ /youtube }    Note:  Remove spaces surrounding "youtube" and "/youtube".

Adjust video window dimensions [optional]:

{ youtube }VideoID|100%|400{ /youtube }    Note:  Remove spaces surrounding "youtube" and "/youtube".

  • 100% = full width of available space
  • 400 = height of video window will be 400px 

Note: These dimensions are shown for the sake of demonstrating configuration options.  When setting width to 100%, omit the height setting.

e.g. { youtube }VideoID|100%{ /youtube }    Note:  Remove spaces surrounding "youtube" and "/youtube".
