As much as Windows Live writer is still on top of the game as far as blogging clients are concerned, I still prefer BlogDesk because it is neat, lightweight(as compared to WLW), easy to install and use. Its actually my on-the-go blogging client.

Do you have a Joomla weblog / website or whatever and you want to embed a youtube video/s into a post:

1) Download and install BlogDesk on your PC.

2) Setup / configure your Joomla install for Blogdesk.

3) You need to download and install a Joomla Plugin called AllVideos.

4) after uploading / installing AllVideos, enable and publish the plugin(AllVideos).

5) Go to YouTube.com and find a video you want to embed. Assuming that the full URL from youtube of your video is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_QsDmtU2ms&feature=related

Note the highlighted code(bold).Compose your post in Blogdesk and embed your video as follows. Insert the following wherever you want the video to be:

youtube

 

{youtube}Z_QsDmtU2ms{/youtube}

6) Publish the post to your Joomla blog/website.

Happy Blogging!
