Joomla 3

Does anybody know of a good plugin/module to embed videos into Joomla 3. I did this a lot in Joomla 1.5 from a plugin I downloaded through the Bits on the Run website, but now I cannot find anything.
Many thanks....

Modular/plugin integration with 3rd party CMS systems is pretty poor right now with JW Player.

You'll pretty much restricted to directly embedding HTML/JavaScript within your pages.

I've developed a visual configuration tool to make the creation and management of player setups and the generation of the JavaScript embed code much simpler, but ultimately you'll still need to copy JS into your page content.

Thank you James for your input.
I have just found an easy way to embed the videos using the Custom HTML Module. The Joomla editor doesn't allow i-frame tags, and will automatically remove them. But there is an option to change this...
From the top menu of your Joomla! admin, go to Extensions -> Plugin Manager. Find the plug-in called Editor-TinyMCE and click on it. When the settings page opens, find the box that is called Prohibited Elements. You will see – script,applet,iframe – written inside the box. Delete iframe from this box so that the final text reads: script,applet
Then you can create a new Custom HTML module using the i-frame option from the embed link of JW Player and fit the module wherever you want. TIP: open the source window of the new module to paste the code in, other wise it will just be text. Hope this saves anyone the several hours of searching I just did for a plugin!!!
