Markup for embedding DailyMotion videos. This module enables embedding of DailyMotion videos into wiki pages.


  • download dailymotion.phpΔ to your cookbook directory.
  • add the following line to your config.php file:


In your confid.php you can setup the dailymotion with the array $Dailymotion:

 $Dailymotion["html"] = 1; # Forces the HTML5 mode.
 $Dailymotion["background"] = '493D27'; # HTML color of the background of controls elements
 $Dailymotion["foreground"] = 'E8D9AC'; # HTML color of the forground of controls elements
 $Dailymotion["highlight"] = 'FFFFF0'; # HTML color of the controls elements' highlights

Check all parameters available for the player.


Simply use (:daily whatever:) where "whatever" is replaced with the cryptic id that is attached after video/ of DailyMotion URLs.

So for example if the URL to share a video is:

then you'd write
(:daily x31eya4:) or
(:daily x31eya4_the-hateful-eight-premier-trailer-jouissif-pour-le-dernier-tarantino_shortfilms:)


By default the iframe-based embed player of dailymotion automatically chooses the technology to use (Flash, HTML5, ...).

You can force the use of html 5 player if needed :
In config.php :
$Dailymotion["html"] = 1;
