I was only able to embed a video using slideshow but it gives arrows (there are no other slides so I don't want this) and it runs as a background video ... no sound which I need. I really just want a simple embedded video from youtube. I tried installing Joomlaworks All Videos and inserting in gridbox as a module but all it shows is the code ... no video. Could not find in the help docs how to do this.

Thanks.

Sorry ... figured out I could use the custom html module to do a video embed that is a part of gridbox. I have it worked out now.

Hello,

Upload your video on YouTube, make it private (if it's necessary for you).

Copy video ID, open Section, Row or Column background options, Select Video Background and paste video ID in the field "YouTube Video ID"

Yes, also you can use standard Joomla! Custom HTML module or Gridbox Plugin "Custom HTML"

The only problem now is that it is not responsive. I used gridbox custom html and put youtube embed code in. Looks like it is going past the gridbox boundaries and nott paying attention to padding. See it here 192.185.2.105/~sandybot/index.php

It's a fault of YouTube embedded code, it's not responsive and it's a fact.
But, here is a great solution: coolestguidesontheplanet.com/videodrome/youtube/

Thanks. That worked great! Any idea how to get rid of the black line above and below the video? Can't seem to figure it out.

Hello,

Try to set iframe sizing to 400 * 225px
