This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.


Import the extension in the extension manager.

Alternatively you can install it via composer:

composer require de-swebhosting-typo3-extension/mediaoembed

Now enable it and import the static template “Media oEmbed” in you template. You can also import the “Media oEmbed default providers” to import a set of default providers.


The database structure and the TYPO3 integration have changed very much between version 0.0.1 and 0.1.0! In the current version a new content type is used for embedding external media called “External Media”. The media data is stored in some new database fields in the tt_content table and not in the media FlexForm any more.

After updating the Extension please use the Update wizard in the Install tool to upgrade you existing media elements to the new version. There are two steps you need to execute in the following order:

  1. Create missing tables and fields (default update step by the TYPO3 Core)
  2. mediaoembed - Migrate content elements
Screenshot of the update steps in the install tool

The update steps in the install tool

That’s it. You can now use the new version of the mediaoembed Extension and all your existing contents are migrated.
