This plugin allows you to embed flash video players from various video sharing sites. New services can be added by just editing a config file. This is not for displaying local video files.

Download and Install

Please use the the download link at the top for manual installation or use in the plugin manager.

Changes

Usage/Syntax

The basic syntax looks like this: {{videosite>videoid?parameter1&parameter2|title}}.

  • Where videosite is one of the identifiers listed below,
  • and videoid is the identifier of the video at the respective site.
  • The parameters are optional. You start these with a ? and separate more of them by a &.
  • The title is optional as well.
  • The video can be aligned by adding spaces on the left or right inside the curly brackets (like in the image syntax).

A toolbar button pops up a prompt where you can simply paste the full URL to the page of the video you want to embed. The plugin will then try to figure out the video ID by itself.

Parameters

  • The size parameter is the best supported parameter. You can either give it in the form:
    • widthxheight like 500×300,
    • or use the keywords small, medium or large.
  • Some other additional parameters are supported (depending on video service) as well:
    • Start point of video: &start=<seconds> (youtube, dailymotion) or &initial_time=<seconds> (twitchtv)
    • End point of video segment: &end=<seconds> (youtube)
    • Auto play: &autoplay=1 (vimeo, youtube, dailymotion, bambuser) or &ap=1(metacafe)
    • Do not show related videos when playback ends: &rel=0 (youtube)
    • Start slide: &startSlide=5 (slideshare)

Examples

Display a YouTube Video:

{{youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU}}

Show a larger player:

{{youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?large}}

Right-align the player :

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU}}

Show a small, centered player:

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small }}

Show a small, centered player with a title:

{{ youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small |Some funny video}}

Some other additional parameters are supported (depending on video service) as well:

{{youtube>L-WM8YxwqEU?small&start=30&end=45|A random segment of 15 seconds}}
