Joomla display Video in Module


On my Joomla site I would like to display a video in a module position. This video player should play a video (flv file) that I upload myself using the Joomla file manager and not an online link like Youtube etc.

Which Joomla extension may do this for me?

Also how could I increase the upload file limit in Joomla's file manager?

Hi AddyWatson,

thanks. But, does this work in the modules? This looks like a plugin to me which means it can be placed anywhere withing an article.
Do you know how I could put it in a module?

Any special reason to place in module?
HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Yes that depends on the design of the site.
In php.ini (create if it doesn't exist) add
upload_max_filesize = 1000M ;
post_max_size = 2000M ;
memory_limit = 191M

Your mileage may vary on syntax and upper limits. If syntax is wrong for your server you'll get a 500 error, delete the file and ask the host how to achieve the equivalent.

Place in administrator directory.

In global config, system, media settings, set maximum size in bytes to 0 (zero)

Under Help, Joomla info, PHP Information check that upload_max_filesize etc from above is as set above.

Install all videos reloaded
Somewhere in the download is mod_avreloaded for hosting a video in a module.
Also install the plugin that adds a button "AVR Media" in your editor and module.
Set the plugin "Local video folder" to videos
Set the audio folder to audio
Via ftp or some other mechanism create images/stories/videos and images/stories/audio
(Avoiding the http upload limits completely....): Use ftp to upload your video to images/stories/videos.
Create the video module, use the avr button, click Local, choose the uploaded video and publish.

Thanks for such a detailed reply joomla_php
Is there any video module extension that has expand-to-full-screen option too?
I don't see this option in this case.
Or am I mistaken?

thanks in advance
