To add a YouTube video to a page, you just need the movie's YouTube ID number.

  1. Copy this little snippet of code:

  2. Paste it into your page editor, or the description of a toy.

  3. Go to YouTube in another Firefox tab, and copy the movie's ID number. (It's in the browser's address bar, after watch?v=)

  4. Paste the ID number between the two tags:

  5. Save the page or product, and check your work in the front end of your site!


This method is much faster than generating and copying the YouTube "embed" code, and pasting it into your site. 


 

 Go to YouTube, and find the video you want. The video ID is the last bit after "v=" Just remember "v=video."

Copy the ID.

Open the page or product to edit, and paste the ID in. P

Put the YouTube "call" around it:

Save the page and check it in the front end. It's that easy. Other video sites work the same way: Supported video sites.

USAGE INSTRUCTIONS (for third-party video providers)

To embed videos to your content use the following Strings per video provider:

  • For Google Video use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3406925506469882756 then your video_id is -3406925506469882756, that means the characters that come after "docid=". Please note that in some cases there might be a minus sign (-) before the last sequence of digits or not!

  • For local Google Video sites (like Google Video France) use:  and replace "TLD" with "co.uk", "com.au", "de", "es", "fr", "it", "nl" or "pl", depending on the local Google Video service.

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://video.google.fr/videoplay?docid=-3406925506469882756 then your video_id is -3406925506469882756, that means the characters that come after "docid=". You then write inside the editor: . Please note that in some cases there might be a minus sign (-) before the last sequence of digits or not!

  • For Yahoo! Video use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://video.yahoo.com/video/play?vid=c860df3ccf66c83fb61bb2ffd934330b.1155220&cache=1 then your video_id is 1155220&cache=1, that means, everything that is AFTER the last DOT on the link!

  • For YouTube use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdXTDovB9K8 then your video_id is cdXTDovB9K8, that means, again just the number at the end of the link!

  • For iFilm use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2732615 then your video_id is 2732615, that means, yes you've guessed too, just the number at the end of the link!

  • For Vimeo use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.vimeo.com/clip:78198 then your video_id is 78198, that means, yes you are a genius, again just the number at the end of the link!

  • For Metacafe use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.metacafe.com/watch/143709/i_get_knocked_down/ then your video_id/video_name is 143709/i_get_knocked_down. That is a tricky one because you need to ommit the last slash (/)! Be careful with this one!

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.bolt.com/wakey1989/video/1293961?cn=HUBS_video_new_all_PAGE1 then your video_id is 1293961.

  • For MySpace Video Code use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.myspacevideocode.com/v-3673-afternoon-delight.php then your video_id is 3673.

  • For FreeVideoBlog use:

  • For Dropshots use: 

    For Dropshots we use the whole browser link, for example https://www.dropshots.com/day.php?userid=127444&cdate=20060612&ctime=050513, because this is the easiest way to embed video. You see, Dropshots uses variables inside the link that would otherwise need to be "found" inside the browser link. And our "motto" for the plugin is "no HTML-hassle" at all! So using some extra PHP code, we "clean up" the link and embed the variables correctly in Joomla's content. So all you have to do is just paste the whole link and that's it!

  • For UUme use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.uume.com/play_0p7PhcCcJ2ra then your video_id is 0p7PhcCcJ2ra.

  • For Tudou.com use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.tudou.com/programs/view/T7tcywVL8P0/ then your video_id is T7tcywVL8P0.

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.seehaha.com/play/19787 then your video_id is 19787.

  • For QuXiu use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://www.quxiu.com/mov/V12285.htm then your video_id is 12285 (without the 'V').

  • For WangYou.com use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://v.wangyou.com/play.php?id=1773127 then your video_id is 1773127.

  • For Mofile TV use: 

    For example if the link on your browser displays https://tv.mofile.com/QM66Q9O8/ then your video_id is QM66Q9O8.
