hwdVideoShare for Joomla 1.5 is now retired, and is no longer supported or developed. It has been replaced the HWD MediaShare gallery.

hwdVideoShare was a powerful Joomla 1.5 video gallery that allowed Joomla webmasters to display video media in an organised and manageable layout on the internet. The gallery could handle the uploading, server-side processing and playback of large video media in all popular formats. It could also import videos from popular video websites such as Youtube and Vimeo.

hwdVideoShare was first published in 2007 for Joomla 1.0 and was a popular media component for the Joomla community. It was retired in March 2010, and was replaced with HWD MediaShare for Joomla 2.5.


hwdVideoShare has server requirements that go beyond those of Joomla. The purpose of these requirements is to process video files on your server. Please see our full requirement list for more details.


hwdVideoShare is no longer supported or developed. However, you can still download the hwdVideoShare component for Joomla 1.5 from Facebook (no registration required).
