||It has been suggested that this article be merged into HwdMediaShare. (Discuss) Proposed since February 2014.|
hwdVideoShare is an open source video gallery for Joomla that allows webmasters to display video media in an organised and manageable layout on the Internet. hwdVideoShare can handle the uploading, server-side processing and playback of large video media in the most popular video formats. The component requires FFmpeg, MENCODER and FLVTOOL2 to run and supports the mpg, mpeg, avi, divx, mp4, flv, wmv, rm, mov, moov, asf, swf and vob video formats. The software is distributed under the GPL GNU license.
In September 2009, the software had been downloaded by over 50000 webmasters. hwdVideoShare and hwdPhotoShare were both retired in March 2012 and replaced by The HwdMediaShare extension which provides all the great features of the hwdVideoShare and hwdPhotoShare galleries, with a cleaner and more efficient framework that follows the Joomla standards. The hwdRevenueManager tool that provided monetization support for hwdVidoeShare and hwdPhotoShare has been incorporated into the new component.

Joomla is an award winning content management system (CMS), which enables webmasters to build Web sites and powerful online applications. By integrating with this system, hwdVideoShare already has a stable and secure website platform which is very beneficial. Once hwdVideoShare has been configured, the application can be expanded with thousands of free GNU GPL extensions listed in the Joomla Extensions Directory. These other extensions will also function under the same user database and can generally be easily integrated with each other.
hwdVideoShare integrates with a large number of third party software from Joomla and other video solutions:
