HTML EDITOR PROBELM INSERTING VIDEO

Postby sonorlha2011 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 12:58 pm

Hi,

I am trying to insert a video on my page using the "old" html insertion code proposed by [youtube].

After copying the lines in the html code, I hit preview and can see everything perfectly.
However, when I SAVE the html, it gets altered on its own, is automatically changed into some other code that does not work... :(

VERY STRANGE. Doing the same, someone on another computer does not have the same problem... WHY???
I warmly thank anyone who could help... it's so frustrating!

You need to search the forum first for people with the same issue before posting. You also need to post in the right area, is your site really Joomla 1.0? Then you need to research video plugins.

Thanks for your answer, and sorry for not posting this message in the right section.
However, I did look for an answer and did NOT fine an appropriate one.
My site is on Joomla 1.5.15... I don't think I need a video plugin as someone else manage to do the job running same Joomla...

Use the code below.

Just insert it inside your articles.

If you are using tinyMCE, I will recommend you going to the Global Configurations to disable that editor.

In that way, you can work without any editor and paste the code without problems.

You can also install the JCE Editor instead. In that way that editor, will facilitate to paste the code more easily.

Don't forget to replace the VIDEONUMBER inside the code below.

You can also change the width and height settings.

Code: Select all

<object width="560" height="315" data="http://www.[youtube].com/v/VIDEONUMBER?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://www.[youtube].com/v/VIDEONUMBER?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0"/><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/></object>
