The HWD Migrator tool helps you migrate videos and photos, and other content such as categories albums and playlists from the old hwdVideoShare (and hwdPhotoShare) gallery to the new HWDMediaShare gallery.

If you're planning on migrating from hwdVideoShare or hwdPhotoShare, then please review the upgrade documentation first. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions.


Why migrate to HWDMediaShare?

Latest Joomla support

hwdVideoShare was originally designed for Joomla 1 back in 2007, and was upgraded to support Joomla 1.5. However, it was replaced by the new HWD MediaShare gallery in 2012, and hasn't been supported or developed since that time. The new gallery has the same features but has been completely re-written for Joomla 3 and beyond.
