Help:Embedding Video

From Nokia Developer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This Help page shows how to play videos and audio within the wiki, where the media can be hosted locally or on one of many popular video sharing sites.

The wiki supports two video/audio playing extensions:

  • Extension:EmbedVideo - for videos hosted on popular video sharing sites including youtube, youtubehd, dailymotion, edutopia, funnyordie, googlevdieo, inertia, revver, sevenload, and teachertube
  • Extension:MediawikiPlayer - for wiki-hosted MP4 videos and MP3 audio. It can also play FLV files and remote MP3/MP4 files, and youtube clips.

See the links above or sections below for example usage.


Extension:EmbedVideo - Play video from popular video sharing sites

The minimum syntax is as shown below:



  • service: the video sharing site; one of dailymotion, divshare,edutopia,funnyordie,googlevideo,interiavideo,revver,sevenload,teachertube,youtube and youtubehd
  • id: the site specific id of the video to be played.

In addition, a width, alignment (left or right) and description can optionally be provided, as shown below


For more information see Extension:EmbedVideo#Usage (Extension help). Note that the help indicates that Vimeo is supported, which is not true in the version on this site.
