Tagged with !obsolete, embed, flash, media, music, namespace, video

Flash is not available anymore in browsers. Embedding single mp3s is included in DokuWiki, see the media syntax description.

This plugin uses Lacy Morrow's Xspf Jukebox flash player to embed a playlist of MP3 or FLV flash movies. It reads track data from ID3 tags and tries to fetch matching cover art from Amazon.

Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


Syntax and Usage

To embed the jukebox, you need to use the following syntax, where namespace is a media namespace with MP3 or FLV files.


Optionally you can give additional parameter keywords separated by spaces:

{{jukebox>namespace wii center}}

The following keywords are supported:

Keyword Result
left left aligns the player
right right aligns the player
center centers the player
shuffle enables the shuffle mode
repeat enables the repeat mode
autoplay automatically start playing after loading
skinname Use the given skin to style the player (see below)


The player can be skinned through images and a skin.xml file. The skin format is documented here.

The following skins are currently available:

  • cassette
  • ipodblack
  • ipodwhite
  • itunes
  • minitunes
  • minitunesreduced
  • orangeeye
  • orangeeyeslim
  • original
  • slim
  • slimoriginal
  • squareone
  • verticalminitunes
  • video
  • walkmerican
  • wii
  • winamp
  • winampsmall

When no skin is given original is used.


  • Video seems to be of bad quality when used with the video skin
  • TimeBar doesn't work in video skin
  • playlist is currently not cached this might create a high load for large playlists (because of ID3 scanning)
  • Support for local track images should be added
  • Clean up filename when no ID3 tag data is available

Patches and skins welcome.
