Hi, flash2.php seems to brake my website, with php PHP 7.2.14 .
The page loads, but there is no content and no menus.
It didn't brake it with php 5.6.38(?), but I doubt the recipe actually worked.
I don't use this recipe anymore. Just informing other users.

With the modification specified below, it's possible to insert .swf but the width and height are alterable.
I suppose it's because of a wrong declaration of this variable.
- $WikiStyleAttr seems not still existing, should I use
$WikiStyleApplyor I'm on the wrong way.
- Is it still the correct way to declare height and width?
SDVA($WikiStyleAttr,array( 'height' => 'img|object|embed', 'width' => 'img|object|embed'));

As it seems this cookbook is not supported on php5.5.
I tried to actualise it and it seems working correctly.
I changed thanks to Petko a line in swf.php
$pagename,'$1','$2',NULL,'$1$2', \$GLOBALS['SwfTagFmt']), 'L')");
$pagename,\$m,\$m,NULL,\$m.\$m, \$GLOBALS['SwfTagFmt']), 'L')");
Another one bites the dust. I am trying to switch to another hosting provider. This recipe doesn't seem to work with php 7.2 . It gives Troubleshooting?#create_function. This recipe is quite useful, mostly for Youtube.

It seems Youtube video's are not working anymore (doesn't matter which browser). Anything wrong with the embed code? Adding $YouTube_enableNewPlayer=true; to config.php doesn't help either?

Google Chrome version 33 has appeared recently (end of February 2014), and the embedded player for You Tube vanished from our wiki (Pacific Bulb Society). Everything is fine in Firefox or in older Chrome. I fixed this by commenting out nocookie (and hd which is apparently defunct action script 2).

I installed version 2011-06-16b , and tried it on
YouTube consistently works for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and SeaMonkey, and consistently gives me a blank video player for Safari and Omniweb that says "An error occurred, please try again later." I've tried this on two different computers. I can view the YouTube in Safari and Omniweb if I directly enter the URL in the browser's address bar.
Is this a problem with the recipe, or is it a browser configuration issue? I've looked at the browser preferences and haven't noticed any problems with the browser configuration.

On iPad, the default browser couldn't play embedded videos. I am pretty sure it was Safari. Not just in pmwiki and for youtube, but in various forums and for various video sites.
Another browser could play the embedded videos properly. It might have been Diigo, or some browser that looks like Diigo.
So... it was a Safari issue.
Does your Safari have issues with embedded videos, on other, non-pmwiki, web sites, as well?
Thanks for the suggestions. I found the solution: I set $YouTube_enableNewPlayer=true in config.php. Now it works for both OmniWeb, and on Safari - both under IOS and OSX.

Here is an informative blog entry for standards compliant flash.
- This one is almost useless, since most .flv videos are too large to attached (exceed 5000kb), and, .flv is not an allowed extension for attachments. tonybaldwin February 21, 2011, at 09:58 AMhi tony. don't know much about this recipe, but pretty positive it only works for swf. however, you can use the archive.org player below to play flv's that are uploaded to archive.org. overtones99 February 21, 2011, at 04:04 PM
flash.php & flash2.php
very strange: I tried uploading a working version that I had locally stored, and the version on the server remains corrupted; perhaps the file's permissions need to be adjusted? shi March 19, 2008, at 07:38 PM
I have fixed a number of bugs in flash.php and uploaded it as flash2.phpΔ - the old version broke attachments in a subtle way (which appeared after the flash video on a given page) - Ed Wildgoose (contact me via http://www.mailasail.com)
flash.php External Data Issue
- just having a small problem with this. my flash file loads some external movie clips and this is not happening on my wiki pages. the flash file runs fine when embeded in a normal html page. would like to fix this if i knew how.
- I'm experiencing some difficulty with flash.php and external data as well. From what I can tell, it's a relative path issue. It seems that relative paths inside flash movies do not resolve correctly within the pmWiki file structure. I'll test for absolute paths later. Is this a known issue? Does pmWiki have problems parsing other relative paths?
- just something it took me a day to realize: it appears that when embedding a flash video that is uploaded to a different group within the same Site than the page you're putting it on (say it's uploaded to MainGroup, but you're now trying to embed it onto a page in ThisOtherGroup), one must treat it like an external URL, and provide an absolute link:
(:flash Attach:MainGroup/flashfile.swf width=150 height=100:)
(:flash http://blah.com/pmwiki/uploads/MainGroup/flashfile.swf width=150 height=100:)
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://images.fotki.com/flash/FlipBook-1.0.swf" width="139" height="202"> <param name="movie" value="http://images.fotki.com/flash/FlipBook-1.0.swf"> <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> <param name="quality" value="best"> <param name="flashvars" value="url=http%3A//feeds.fotki.com/simonhobbs/album_tdskbkfrdrfkt.rss&linkcolor=%235471B9& bgcolor=%23DFE5F4&rows=4&cols=3&el_size=45"> </object>
Any ideas? SimonH
- PL 8 October 2009Flash videos produced at screencast.com include video and audio controls in the exported swf. No extra files to deal with as are produced for example by Camtasia. Screencast.com Registration is free.
flash2.php are using the deprecated
/e modifier for
A possible solution is to change the following line:
Markup('flash', '<img', "/\\(:flash (.*?:)(.*?)(\\s.*?)?\\s*?:\\)/e", "ShowFlash('$1','$2','$3')");
Markup_e('flash', '<img', "/\\(:flash (.*?:)(.*?)(\\s.*?)?\\s*?:\\)/", "ShowFlash(\$m,\$m,\$m)");

YouTube, Vimeo, and GoogleVideo
and Flickr Video (Flickr has moved into a separate recipe - see below)
Question - Is there any way to set the start time of a google video? I think you are supposed to be able to do that but I could not get it to work. Perhaps it has to be done on the flash instead of the google video? Example, suppose I want the video to start and 35 seconds from the start, how would I do that? 11/4/10
Answer - Hi - currently, with this recipe, there is not a way to do this but there will be soon I just found some pages online that explain how to do this and I will update the recipe accordingly hopefully as soon as I can get to it. Stay tuned. overtones99 November 04, 2010, at 02:29 PM
Hi. Im using the swf-sites recipe.
(:youtube tgbNymZ7vqY:) works fine.
(:youtube tgbNymZ7vqY width=425 height=344:) - which is listed as possible code above - doesn't work at all. No video is shown. Also "scale" as "default variable" doesn't have any effect on the video's dimension. And YES I added it before the "include"-line. What am I doing wrong? me - Feb 15 2010
hi. sorry you're having trouble with the recipe. the examples you've provided above work fine on my site - http://plus1plus1plus.org/Resources/PmWiki-swfsites-test - i'm running pmwiki 2.2.6, and 2009-10-25 version of the swf-sites recipe. i'll try updating my pmwiki to the latest version in the next day or two to see if any problem arises, though i don't think that will change anything. in the meantime, can you tell me what you included in your config? what exactly did you add above the "include"-line? my setup looks like this and works fine:
$YouTubeDefaultParams['rel'] = '0';
overtones99 February 16, 2010, at 02:56 AM
Hi. My config.php
$YouTubeDefaultParams['scale'] = '1.3';
$YouTubeROEenabled = 'false';
Other recipes like svg, flashmediaplayer works quite fine. 'm running 2.2.11. At the moment only your to lines are added for including swf-sites.php. me - Feb 16 2010
also - was this error msg showing up all along, or is it new for this go-round? you didn't mention any error msg in your first post - it just sounded like the video just wasn't showing up on the page. is the error new?
overtones99 February 16, 2010, at 08:46 AM
Hi. First I saw, that you're running another recipe-version then me. No idea where I downloaded an older one. After uploading the actual one - i got the error-message. So I checked the php-version. It was 4.4.9. In contrast my provider claims he offers php5... [sic] I checked the help-pages and read that I have to activate php 5 on my own - by default php4 is used... now it works - so you don't need to make a workaround. Sorry for the first "error" (shame on me) - the second error I could fix on my own. me - Feb 16 2010

Is there an update now that GodTube has become Tangle? Thanks - Think1
I would really appreciate it if someone could write up a cookbook for embedding mp3 audio files: see
Added January 2009. or even for embedding mp4 video files. Thanks again. LFS
