Hello All,

I am finding it difficult to impossible to embed my UStream live channel in my Joomla 2.5 site. I have tried ustream.tv extension, whispervideo extension and even [spam] extension (with a [spam] channel). I have searched google and bing for instruction on how to use the extensions and asked at forums (with no answers offered). I can't get anything to work.

Is there someone here that is willing to walk me through getting my Ustream live channel configured for Joomla. ???

Thank You for any help you can offer.

Probably the best way is to use Ustream's most current IFrame embed code.
But you will need to deal with the Joomla-eats-your-embed-code issue.
Put the IFrame code in an article or in a 3rd-party custom HTML module.

There is also a Ustream plug-in for J2.5 which is no longer in the JED.

It is a bit rough around the edges but I have tested this extension and it does work.

Hi kenmcd

Thank you for responding. I have done as you instructed. The attached screen shot shows the embed code in an article but not the ustream video frame that should be there. Can you tell me what is going wrong here?

Given the sort of jumbled mess of code there (including some pieces of Live-stream.com embed code), my guess is you have been adding/editing in WYSIWYG mode and ended-up with a broken mess.

Switch the editor to HTML mode and clean-out all the broken HTML code.
Or switch the editor selected to No Editor which will show only HTML.

OK, I managed to get my ustream live channel embeded and working. Here is how I did it:

Changed editor, in global configuration, to TinyMCE. No editor didn't seem to do the job.
Created a new menu item and selected Iframe Wrapper as the Menue Item Type. In the Basic Options tab in the URL box, I entered this modified embed code:

http://www.ustream.tv/embed/askr8wo5c89 ... ode=direct" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border: 0px none transparent;">

In the Scroll Bar Parameters tab I selected NO in the scroll bars option. In the width option Ientered 560, in height option 360 and pressed save.

My original embed code (with channel number changed for privacy) looked like this:

<iframe width="480" height="302" src="http://www.ustream.tv/embed/vmf837033j?v=3&amp;wmode=direct" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border: 0px none transparent;"> </iframe>
<br /><a href="http://www.ustream.tv/" style="padding: 2px 0px 4px; width: 400px; background: #ffffff; display: block; color: #000000; font-weight: normal; font-size: 10px; text-decoration: underline; text-align: center;" target="_blank">Live broadcast by Ustream</a>

I read in another fourm post to only enter, in the URL box, the part of the embed code that came after src= and was between quotes (as in " "). I have highlighted in bold and underline the part of my embed code that I used.

I don't know why this works. I simply kept at it until the pieces came together. Some of the entries don't match like the width and heigth numbers and the code is obviously only paritial but it works.

I hope this helps others with the same problem. Thank you for your help with this. I have included a screen shot of my web page with the ustream channel as it is now.

Interesting solution.

But do not include the trailing ">

The wrapper/iframe is going to surround the link (and code) you enter within " quotes.
So adding the closing " quote and the > is going to create broken HTML on your page.
This broken HTML may cause display problems in some browsers.
