This is the quickest and easiest way to add YouTube videos to your website, no HTML skills required. With our YouTube video player embed plugin, you can embed YouTube videos into your Joomla articles simply by copying and pasting a video's URL from YouTube into any Joomla article. You will have access to all of the YouTube Player API settings from within the backend of Joomla; this will allow you to customize the player to fit your site's needs.
