This DokuWiki plugin creates an embedded Dailymotion VideoZap widget in an Wiki page from a Dailymotion playlist. User can embed many movies just specifying the playlist ID with simple syntax.

This plugin is based on the Dailymotion plugin written by Christophe Benz.


Basic syntax:


Extended syntax:

  • Id : Dailymotion playlist Id
  • Params : Dailymotion params

Please note that if you change the parameters cols and rows, you will need to change total size, too (fixed to 2×5 videos (604px x 355px) for the moment, see TODO list).

How to get the Playlist Id ?

To get that Id :

  • login into Dailymotion, then click on playlists into the personal nav bar (the bar where there is freinds, groups, comments, etc).
  • click on a playlist to open it
  • the playlist Id is now on the adress bar
