How to Embed Instagram Photos and Videos iwith OSEmbed

If you use Joomla, then you probably know that embeds can be confusing. It can be hard to find the right embed code and then keep it intact while using your WYSIWYG editor.

Thankfully, the OSEmbed extension makes Instagram embeds much easier.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how easy it is to embed Instagram videos and photos into Joomla.

Step #1. Install OSEmbed

Step #2. Get the Instagram link

  • Visit and find the photo you want to embed.
  • Find the URL for the photo. Here is an examples URL for Instagram photos and videos:

Step #3. Add the URL to a Joomla article

  • Go to your Joomla site and login.
  • Add the Instagram URL to a Joomla article:

  • If you have the Pro version of OSEmbed, the URL will automatically be turned into an Instagram embed! You'll see a preview inside the editor:
