Close your eyes and try to imagine the present without videos and images. Oh my god, it's terrible, right?! Those things help me relax and feel full of life and I even want to set up a lively site containing a gallery of favorite videos that I'd love to share with everyone. As a Joomla user, this is not so difficult because there are many Joomla video extensions on Joomla extensions directory (JED) to support embedded links to video and audio, and create my own dynamic galleries. I chose the 7 best Joomla 2.5 video extensions split into 2 types - "Video players & galleries" and "Video channels". I also tested them on my site.

What are a Video channel and a Video player?

A Video channel is used to present videos from external video streaming sites such as Youtube, Vimeo and so on. Your site doesn't need to use a lot of bandwidth if you choose this method. A video player, meanwhile, helps to play videos from local folders or external video streaming sites. A video player might be expected to understand and translate several video codecs, containing many video formats.

Now we can start to discover what the 7 best Joomla 2.5 extensions are.


I'm looking for a good video extension which could meet my following requirements:

  • Easy to use (this is always a priority on the list)
  • Support most major video formats: avi, mp4, mpeg, flv, wmv, etc.
  • Support for popular video-sharing websites: Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo
  • Multiple galleries and playlists
  • Social media sharing: Facebook, Twitter
