After downloading PixiVideo for your Joomla Version....


Unzip the package to a folder on your hard drive. You will have 1 component and 2 plugins to install.

For Joomla 1.5

For Joomla 2.5

For Joomla 3.0

After successfully installing the component and plugins, navigate to Components > Pixi Video

In top right corner click Options or Parameters, depending on your Joomla version.

For Joomla 3.0 it is in the top left corner.

This is where you will set your path to your videos that you can upload to your server via ftp.


You will now need to create a directory on your server to keep your videos in. It can be named anything, anywhere you want it.

To enter the path correctly in the Global Configuration notice there is no leading /

For example,  will be entered as above.

That is all there is to set up in the component.



Now for the plugins.

Joomla 1.5 

Navigate to Plugins > Editor - Button Video, Enable this plugin.

Joomla 2.5 and 3.0

Navigate to Plugins > Button - Video, Enable this plugin.


Ok, almost done...... for the next plug in

Navigate to Plugins > Content - Pixivideo for Joomla 1.5  and Plugins > Content Pixi Video for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0, enable this plugin.

Here you can set your default player size, whether or not to show a download link, and set the age gate text you wish to display if you have the age gate enabled. You can also set age gate  to yes here, and you will have the option when inserting a video to enable it for that video or not. (Joomla 3.0 click the Basic Options tab to see these settings)


Age Gate that users see,


Ok, so you are done now, Its time to see how easy it is to insert a video into an article.


Go ahead and upload some videos into your server directory you created, use an ftp client, its faster.

Now lets go and create a new article,


Then you will get a pop up where you simply click the video you wish to insert.

You can also enable or disable the age gate here, depending on what you have set earlier. You can also set a different player size here if you wish

Once you click insert then you are done and have successfully inserted a video into your Joomla article.

(NOTE: If you receive an error with this pop up, simply update your Joomla Version)
