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.



The basic syntax looks like this: {{videosite>videoid?size|title}}. Where videosite is one of the identifiers listed below, and videoid is the identifier of the video at the respective site. The size parameter is optional. You can either give it in the form widthxheight like 500×300, or use the keywords small, medium or large. 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.


Display a YouTube Video:


Show a larger player:


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}}

Additional sites can be added to the sites.conf file in the plugin directory. Video ID recognition patterns for the toolbar button are configured in sites.js.


Mixed Content Error

All the builtin items in sites.conf are set to use http://*.
This means the plugin does not work when accessing the wiki over https.

This can be fixed by replacing http:// with // in sites.conf.

I have only tested this using the youtube entry.
