It is quite hard to embed a Youtube video into a Joomla article. If you are using the TinyMCE editor, this will delete all the embed code that is required to display any Youtube video. But we have a solution, a very simple and elegant one. We have created the JAW-Tube, a free plugin that will automatically recognize any Youtube video link in your Joomla articles and will automatically embed them.
How to use the JAW-Tube plugin?
Download the plugin from the above link and install it to your Joomla 2.5 or 3.x website. The plugin will automatically enable itself, so you don’t have to do anything else, just insert youtube video links into articles.
Simply copy the URL of any Youtube video link from your browser and paste it into any Joomla article. The video-frame will automatically adapt to the full width of your content size and will show the scaled preview image of the video. This plugin is responsive, so users who browse your website on mobile, will also be able to watch these videos easily. Here is the demo of an embed Youtube video:
