Continuing our series on Joomla plugins, this week we tackle the surprisingly complicated task of embedding video into Joomla articles. What makes embedding videos in Joomla so troublesome (especially for those accustomed to working in blogging software like WordPress) is that Joomla’s content editor strips out any embedding tags (like OBJECT, EMBED, and even SCRIPT tags).
A stock Joomla 1.5 install has no built-in facility to display page content in tabs or slides, and so developers must either cobble something together from scratch or use a third party plugin. And that’s what takes us to our first plugin of the series… Joomla Tabs and Slides (in content items).
