You don’t need to extract it. Just go to the backend and install it from there (while it’s still a zip file).

Helen asks…

How to embed my USTREAM channel into JOOMLA [1.7]?

Please this has been bothering me for a long time and I’ve searched the web endlessly without any clue on how to do it. Help me if you can.

Simon answers:

The easiest way is to use one of these extensions:

http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/social-web/social-media/video-channels/19140
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/social-web/social-media/video-channels/15752
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/social-web/social-media/video-channels/3246 <- this one may or may not be compatible with 1.7

Good luck

Ruth asks…

What is the best free web hosting server that supports Joomla 1.7?

Simon answers:

If your dealing with a site you never look at or doesn’t matter to you i may look at free hosting. The problem with free hosting is that you will deal with constant interruptions and service downtime.. that even if you can find a free hosting website that won’t try to hijack your code, embed links or any other nonsense you will deal with
