Privacy-friendly integration of Youtube videos in Joomla! articles

With this plugin, you can add Youtube videos easily and privacy-friendly into your Joomla articles using a simple syntax!

Videos are replaced by a preview image with a play button and loaded in the privacy-enhanced mode once the user has clicked on the button. No data is transferred to Youtube without the consent of the user.

The syntax {youtube}ID{/youtube} triggers the plugin execution. The ID is the v-parameter in the URL (v=xxxxxx). But you may also simple paste the complete URL between the syntax call; the plugin will automatically extract the video ID! A second option can be used to set a custom image as the replacement image.

You can even show the original Youtube preview image instead of the custom image. The thumbnails images are downloaded directly from Youtube and cached by the plugin on the server for better performance.

It's possible to set several custom player parameters in the settings of the plugin, e.g., activate autoplay or set the visibility of the control elements.

You may set three additional options directly in the syntax for the specified video ID. The first option is the video ID, the second option is a custom image, the third option is the width, and the fourth option is the height of the video.

Example how to use the plugin in the content component:

{youtube}xxxxxx{/youtube}
{youtube}https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxx{/youtube}
{youtube}xxxxxx|images/custom-image.jpg{/youtube}
{youtube}xxxxxx|images/custom-image.jpg|600|400{/youtube}
{youtube}xxxxxx||800|600{/youtube}
