Table of Contents

This plugin uses the JW Media Player, built with Adobe's Flash to support playback of a single media file of any format the Adobe Flash Player can handle (MP3, FLV, SWF, JPG, PNG and GIF). It also supports RSS, XSPF and ATOM playlist (with mixed mediatypes and advertisement possibilities), a wide range of flashvars (settings) for tweaking both behavior and appearance.


<flashplayer width=X height=Y>flashvars</flashplayer>

Replace x and y with the height and width you would like. The slider is 20 pixels high, so if you want to display a movie that is 240 in height you would enter height=260.

There are many flashvars available. The link below links to the JW Flash Player web site for details on the flash variables:

In order to refer to a file in your wikis media repository, you must refer to it like this:
