Youtube plugin for Joomla! is one of the most popular plugins in Jommla's extension directory. With this small and simple plugin you would be able to embed YouTube videos in your articles by simply adding brackets in the form:
When the x's are the id of the youtube video.
That's about it. There is nothing else you need to do. You can specify the dimensions of the video as you seem fit in the administrator panel.
3 Step Installation:
- Download the Youtube plugin for your Joomla! version.
- Upload the plugin by going to 'Extensions' -> 'Extension Manager' . Click on 'Choose file' and then 'Upload & Install'.
- Enable the plugin by going to 'Extensions' -> 'Plug-in Manager' . Find the plugin by searching for 'youtube'. Click the red cross button to turn it to green to enable it.

Issues:If you get a warning such as:
JFolder::create: Could not create directory Path: /var/www/plugins/content/youtubeplugin
Plugin Install: Failed to create directory: /var/www/plugins/content/youtubeplugin
Then simply change the permissions on the 'content' folder with your FTP client (by right clicking it and specifying 777 permission) or chmod it using the terminal:
chmod 777 /var/www/plugins/content
If you have installed the plugin but it doesn't work, check that you have enabled it by toggling the red button to green in the Plug-in Manager:
