Hi folks,

Have run into this issue:
Tho I have set Extensions>Plugins>Editor>TinyMCE>prohibited elements>script,applet
video would not load
then set global configuration>text filters>"no filtering"

then in source code put in embed code, video still did not show...

What am I missing?

Thanks...

Use a content plugin. Much better than fiddle with iframes.

Thanks guys,
I'm trying to upload [youtube] videos. Joomla's video accomodation is pretty hinkey as I never really got the videos to upload even when following instructions. Besides, it doesn't seem to be practical if I'm planning to upload several ongoing. I tried Allvideos which worked on one but two others right below it didn't. (black video screen). Have registered but have not gotten back a verification code so I can get to their forum.

Considering everything, I agree with you Per..a content plugin is the way to go...thanks again...any other ideas appreciated...

I don't understand why you are uploading them to the web server when you can play them directly from [youtube]. The Allvideo plugin supports [youtube].

....because I'm doing things on my server that I don't want to do on YT...
