Fact: You can embed third party content (like YouTube or Vimeo videos, Google maps, Flickr images etc.) right into a Joomla module or article without any extra plugin, module or other extension.

But there are two major problems doing it with a fresh Joomla installation:
1. The default editor removes some HTML tags like OBJECT or iFRAME
2. Even if the Super Admin adds content it will be checked against a blacklist and HTML tags which can caused security problems will be removed automatically, too.

The solution:
1. Turn off the default editor
2. Disable the text filtering for your Super Admin

Small Hint:
If you don´t know how you create and publish a custom module in Joomla watch my tutorial here:


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
