How to Embed Youtube video in Joomla with Blogdesk

youtube logo standard againstwhite

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

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

Happy Blogging!
