What next? How does it work?
Note: Are you just looking to add a single video to your article page using direct video paths? If yes, you can omit the following sections and jump directly to Using the Player Plugin.
1. Login to your Joomla admin
2. Select “Yendif Video Share” from the “Components” menu. You should see several submenus related to the component as listed below,
- Videos – Menu in which we upload and manage our videos
- Categories – Menu in which we create categories
- Youtube Import – Menu in which we manage the Automatic youtube Imports
- Advertisements – Menu in which we manage the user uploaded advertisement for videos
- Ratings – Menu in which the video ratings are listed.
- Likes/Dislikes – Menu in which we manage the Likes and Dislikes
Step 1: Adding categories
Assume that you have more than a hundred videos in your database. In such cases, it’s not much easy to manage all your videos without categorization. So, we have made categorization to be mandatory before adding your Videos. It means all your videos must be added to a category. So, the first step is to create a category. Read more
Step 2: Adding videos
After creating a category, you can just go to the Videos menu and start adding your video selecting the New button. Using the Yendif Video Share Video form, either you can upload the video from your local hard disk or just add the direct video URL which already exists in your server. Additionally, it can accept YouTube video URLs or embed code of any third-party video-sharing website. Read more
