PS: altro tried from Firefox 4.. it works but not like in Chrome, IE and iOS\Safari... instead of starting to play the file immediately it wants to buffer the entire file! It makes it basically unusable for long videos.
ok guys here is the solution step 1. download file from http://www.longtailvideo.com/jw/upload/mediaplayer-viral.zip and extract it. step 2. download configuration file from http://swiftlytilting.com/files/MediawikiPlayer.0.3.0.zip extract it rename it to mediaplayer. step 3. paste all the file from step 2 in the mediaplayer folder in step 3 step 4. place the mediaplayer folder in /extension folder step 5. add in local settings require_once( "$IP/extensions/MediawikiPlayer/MediawikiPlayer.php" );
step 6. use it using syntax <mediaplayer>File:xyz.mp4</mediaplayer>
Thank you but I am sorry to say that it was not a solution for me. The player did load but I have a host of errors on the main page. Kind regards.
