    Joomla youtube problem

    I have a strange joomla problem.

    I am trying to embed a youtube video on a joomla site. I go to the youtube video site and get the iframe embed code.

    I then put the code into the article I want. When I click preview the video looks fine. When I click save or apply the code gets removed.

    I have managed to embed a youtube video fine in a module else where on the same site but it does not seem to work in an article

    I think it might be your editor cleaning up the code, try selecting no editor in global config and give it another go. Failing that I use the allvideos plugin

    *edit if you are using joomla 2.5 you can use this neat little plugin to select which editor to use saves a lot of time

    I tried the no editor root but it didn't make a difference. We are still using version 1.5.25.

    So I installed the allvideos plugin and its working now.

    Thanks for the help

    Try Youtube Gallery Extensions, it may work as plugin, so you can embed in to any article. No codding needed.
