How to remove the branding

The add-on displays a small notice in the page footer, alongside XenForo's copyright. You can disable this notice from the Admin CP by going to Home > Options > s9e Media Pack. If you do, please consider making a voluntary donation using the PayPal buttons below.

Installation / Upgrade

Unzip the archive and upload the content of the upload folder to your XenForo installation. Then go to your forum's Admin CP and install/upgrade the add-on via the provided addon-s9e.xml file.


You can configure which categories of media sites you want installed in the Admin CP by going to Home > Options > s9e Media Pack. By default, all the media sites are installed. You do not need to reinstall after changing the configuration.

How to request a media site

If there is a media site that you would want to see in this pack, you can request it in this thread and it will be considered for inclusion. Selection may depend on the site's popularity, Alexa rank and activity on social sites. Please post a few links as examples of the kind of links that should be supported. You do not need to post the embed code, only links to the content you want to embed.

Thank you for maintaining this xf1 plugin. Works great and everyone in the xf community appreciates your longterm support.
Great add on with constant updates (sometimes too many lol, but this has gotten better over time). Makes everything really well implemented into the forum, especially YouTube videos :D

Very simple to use and it works perfectly :) A very good addon and it is a must to embed media sites
An essential add-on for any Xenforo site that had multimedia links shared by its members. JoshyPHP keeps it up-to-date and working at a pace that is second to none in the add-on community.
Although I gave already five stars earlier, I would like to refresh my review for the current version. This addon is a perfect and must have addition for all forums who share embeds from media or social sites. The addon deserves without a doubt 5 stars. Additionally it receives another 5 stars for the awesome and competent support by @JoshyPHP!
