Description

The HTML5 video field plugin displays a video player on any extension supporting Joomla! custom fields.

Installation

The plugin is installed as any Joomla Extension via the Extensions / Manage / Install menu option. Once installed you will need to publish the plugin in the plugin manager.

Configuration

To add a video file simply type in the filename or URL of a video file as field value.

Example 1:

myvideofile.mp4

This will play back a file called myvideofile.mp4 located in your server's folder as selected in the field parameters.

Example 2:

http://www.yourserver.com/media/videofile.mp4

The player will use the video file located at that URL. You can use local stored videos or videos from an external source.

The supported video formats are:

  • MP4
  • WebM
  • Ogg
