The EmbedSpotify extension allows for embedding Spotify player.


Copy the embed code from the Spotify app. The code should be something like:

<iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/album/6EmLwnyjJRVgNOmOUpVhzz" width="300" height="380" frameborder="0" allowtransparency="true" allow="encrypted-media"></iframe>

You need to copy the text between <iframe src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/ and " width. In the example, it is the album/6EmLwnyjJRVgNOmOUpVhzz part. It can start with album/, playlist/, or artist/ depending on the type of the song list you embed.

To embed the player, paste the copied text between <spotify> and </spotify>.

So, <spotify>album/6EmLwnyjJRVgNOmOUpVhzz</spotify> is the text you have to insert into your wiki page.

You can specify the width and height of the player in the tag's attributes such as <spotify width="300" height="200">album/6EmLwnyjJRVgNOmOUpVhzz</spotify>. If not specified, 300 and 380 will be used for width and height respectively.
