Local and remote videos in JoomVideos

JoomVideos support uploading videos from local computer and also remote videos from other websites like Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and more.

Local Videos

You can upload videos from computer in all popular videos format (mpg, mpeg, avi, divx, mp4, flv, wmv, rm, mov, moov, asf, swf and vob) to your website and display them in your gallery videos, after that all uploaded videos will be converted to HTML5 video format using FFMPEG.

JoomVideos use FFMPEG program to convert videos which must be already installed in your server. Default installation of FFMPEG program support major video formats such as MPEG, MOV, WMV, AVi.

To support additional video formats you must install extra codecs to your server and then add these formats into Joomla Backend -> JoomVideos -> Configuration -> Uploading -> Allow Files types.
