This week we'll walk you through how to embed video and audio into an article.

We're going to use a plugin called AllVideos

Here's how you do it:

  1. Download the AllVideos plugin from JoomlaWorks.
  2. In the administration area of your Joomla site, go to Extensions >> Install / Uninstall and upload the file to install.
  3. In the administration area of your Joomla site, go to Extensions >> Plugin Manager and find and enable the plugin 'AllVideos (by JoomlaWorks)'.
  4. Insert video or audio into an article using 'tags' as described in the Available Tags page provided by JoomlaWorks. For example, if you wish to include a YouTube video into an article, you will surround the 'video id' in the tags as such {youtbue}video id here{/youtube} (the 'video id' of a YouTube video comes right after the ?v= in the URL for the video)

Using this great plugin you can embed videos from many sources that host videos as well as your own hosted videos and audio files.
