This plugin provides embedding video on wikipages. Plugin uses most simple embedding method - only with embed tag and without any JS-scripts.


[[!video width=100 height=100 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="/_jwplayer/player.swf" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" autostart="false" file="path_to_video"]]

All parameters are optional except file and will be replaced with the default settings as showed in the above example.

file is relative path in webdir or web-address (to Youtube page).


Download and unpack archive in your ikiwiki webdir. Or download JW Player and perl module separately. Make dir _jwplayer and put player.swf in it. Also put in Plugin dir. In Ikiwiki configuration switch on the plugin:

add_plugins => [qw{.......... video}]


Htmlscrubber may block embed tag.

If embed tag present but video not playing - check mode of unpacked player.swf.
