I then tried adding:
which returns the error message:
Parse error: parse error in C:\wamp\www\mediawiki\LocalSettings.php on line 126
I then tried:
You need to put the MediawikiPlayer directory you downloaded in C:\wamp\www\mediawiki\extensions.
Thank you for replying. That is where I put it. It's what I need to next. As you can see above I seem to be doing something wrong. I think that I am missing a step before putting: require_once("$IP/extensions/MediawikiPlayer/MediawikiPlayer.php"); in LocalSettings, but that is just a guess.
This is a copy of C:\wamp\www\mediawiki\extensions
You haven't put the directory in the right place, or you're missing a file. I'm not sure what else I can tell you.
Thank you sorry for wasting your time. I obviously do not know what I am doing. I did get as far as The media player is loading... but it never loaded. I will just have to do without.
Once again thank you.
Hi all, I'm using MediawikiPlayer 0.3.0 with JW player 5.7 on Mediawiki 1.16.5. No issues at all from IE9, Chrome or iOS (4.3) devices.. but the player won't start under IE8 (tried with flash 9 and the most recent 10,3,181,26) and the page would simply say "The media player is loading...". Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks a lot, Sergio
PS: altro tried from Firefox 4.. it works but not like in Chrome, IE and iOS\Safari... instead of starting to play the file immediately it wants to buffer the entire file! It makes it basically unusable for long videos.
ok guys here is the solution step 1. download file from http://www.longtailvideo.com/jw/upload/mediaplayer-viral.zip and extract it. step 2. download configuration file from http://swiftlytilting.com/files/MediawikiPlayer.0.3.0.zip extract it rename it to mediaplayer. step 3. paste all the file from step 2 in the mediaplayer folder in step 3 step 4. place the mediaplayer folder in /extension folder step 5. add in local settings require_once( "$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.
