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.
