This is a killer extension!

It took me almost an hour of wrangling to work the kinks out of the installation, but it was totally worth it. What hung me up was that there was no documentation at all about the mediawiki extension on the site that you download the player from. I spent a lot of time sifting through the source code repository there before I nailed down the 2 files that were mentioned on the mediawiki::extensions page.

I am psyched at the quality of the video as well as the mp3 mode.

Very pleased with the end result. Nice work.

I am having trouble getting this to work.
I see “The player will show in this paragraph” But the player does not appear.
The html and the paths produced in the wiki page seems to be correct:

The player will show in this paragraph

//

What could be the problem?

Hi James,

That usually means there is a problem with the javascript.. did you install the .js file which is included in the JW Player installation? You must download the JW FLV player separately to to use in conjunction with this extension.

Hi there !

Thanks for that great extension. I have the commercial license of the JW FLV Player and I was very very happy to find your script.

One question, is it possible at all to have a thumbnail preview to click and to open the video in either a new page or through Lightbox/Thickbox?

I have seen implementations of thickbox and lightbox into mediawiki but it looks pretty complicated and I would skip this if it’s not possible to link your extension at the lightbox trick.

Thanks again!

Alex
