    Huge thanks. I've had several unsuccessful attempts to embed videos and slide shows from Slideshare. This time it actually worked!

    Worked perfectly in 2.5. For everyone saying they can't get it to work. Watch the video again. This isn't Rocket Surgery.

    Hi , I have been trying add a video and cant figure this out. First i have noticed that i don't nearly have enough tiny Mce buttons. I am not sure how you ad them in.

    i have manged to disable the tiny mce player, but when i get back to the article manager ,the page is blank.

    i have cut and pasted the url, but nothing happens when i paste it.

    my page had a previous jwl Player, is that a problem?

    any advice would be good

    Even the 1.7 html won't work. You have to turn off editor then embers your video.

    dont "dislike" guys, 1.7 is different from 1.5 but the video is still helpful. Please watch basic lessons to see how 1.5 is different from our current version. 🙂

    I have tried this and other tips from other users but I haven't been able to embed the code. Every time I save it, it disappears.

    @HFHSECT From the administrative backend there should be a Site > Global Configuration (Site — Default WYSIWYG Editor pulldown tab). If not then you are not in the backend or you are not running Joomla 1.5.xx

    what do I do if I don't have a global configuration option?
