This plugin allows you to embed flash video players from various video sharing sites. New services can be added by just editing a config file. This is not for displaying local video files.

Download and Install

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


The basic syntax looks like this: {{videosite>videoid?parameter1&parameter2|title}}

A toolbar button pops up a prompt where you can simply paste the full URL to the page of the video you want to embed. The plugin will then try to figure out the video ID by itself



Display a YouTube Video:


Show a larger player:


Right-align the player:

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU}}

Show a small, centered player:

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small }}

Show a small, centered player with a title (look for right space!):

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small |Some funny video}}

Some other additional parameters are supported (depending on video service) as well:

{{youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small&start=30&end=45|A random segment of 15 seconds}}
