Can anyone advise if any of the available EE plugins to embed YouTube etc into a page, will also embed into the EE forum software as a WYSIWYG so that members can use it ?

1 Answer 1


I'm using the Channel Videos module from DevDemon with YouTube and Vimeo videos. It has a lookup feature within the module so you can search either resource from your EE install..quite good, and it's free. One issue: name your video tab anything other than {video} - that fails for some reason.

  • The main thing that I am looking for is for forum users to be able to place videos in their posts. Will this setup do that job ?

  • Sure - you can also wire it to the template with the stand alone entry form and safecracker. That said, if all you need is to allow users to pass a video link to your website and display that YouTube element on the page, you can do that with just a simple text field...use the YouTube sharing link for such things...

  • Magic ! That tells me just what I needed to know. I am still a complete Newbie to EE and still feeling my way around. Thanks a lot.

  • OK, will do ! Still fumbling around my new EE forum installation. Over the years I have played with numerous CMS/website building doftware, and free forum software. Having it all under one cPanel will eventually make it all much more efficient.
