Top 6 Joomla 3.5 video extensions to build your multimedia website easily

Top 6 Joomla 3.5 video extensions to build your multimedia website easily

 

In today blog, I’ll introduce to you 6 best Joomla 3.5 video extensions which have been getting the highest scores on JED and thoroughly recommended by Joomla community.

In general, they are easy-to-use and support most major video formats. Also, they have open-source libraries for syncing video from popular video-sharing websites such as Youtube, Vimeo and of course, all are recently updated to be compatible with Joomla 3.5.

I split those extensions into 3 types by their functionality:

  1. Insert and display video into your article
  2. Display video on your page background
  3. Create and display video playlists on your website.

INSERT AND DISPLAY VIDEO INTO YOUR ARTICLE

OSYOUTUBE

OSYoutube makes it dead simple to embed YouTube videos into an article on your Joomla website.

All you have to do is copy and paste the URL of YouTube video into your articles and Flash Player will appear in your article automatically.

Surely it takes you only approximately 20 seconds to publish a new article with a clip from Youtube.

You can use Free version of OSYouTube, or purchase its Pro version with all features & advanced support for 6 months with $22 or for 12 months with $35.

DISPLAY VIDEO ON YOUR PAGE BACKGROUND

AIKON YOUTUBE BACKGROUND VIDEO

Aikon YouTube Background Video supports you stream any video directly from YouTube and place it on your website either as a background, as a header or as a section.

Its admin interface is easy to use and configure. Just insert your text, shadows, images, titles and even modules and style right on the video section as an overlay, define your video's width and height and set up a control bar for your visitors to use with pause, play, mute and more.

Especially, it runs on advanced streaming technology that ensures zero loading time for a full-size scaled video.
