Summary: Unobtrusive embedding of video players from simple links
Status: Superseded by Ape
This recipe is superseded by Ape.
Easily embed Youtube, Vimeo and other video clips into your wiki pages.
The recipe is:
- easy to use: introduces no new markup
- future-proof - if the recipe is disabled, the links will continue to work.
Currently the recipe embeds public videos from Youtube, Vimeo and Facebook, future versions will add compatibility with other video sharing websites and with videos attached to the wiki.
To embed a video from Youtube or Vimeo, simply copy the "Share" address of the video and paste it into the wiki page, wrapped with the
%player% ... %% wiki style. You can use all features of links (text, tooltip title, etc.). For example:
%player% http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJCczbSF-B8 %%
%player% http://youtu.be/HJCczbSF-B8 %%
%player% [[http://youtu.be/HJCczbSF-B8|Eben Moglen on Facebook, Google and Government Surveillance]] %%
%player% [[http://vimeo.com/59674991|Paris impression]] %%
To embed a public video from Facebook, enter the URL address of the page, eg.:
%player% https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1234567890 %%
You can set the size of the video by setting the width and height of the %player% style:
%player width=100pct height=400px% http://youtu.be/HJCczbSF-B8 %%
No configuration is required.
