OggHandler is an extension which allows you to display Ogg audio and video files in wiki pages, using the same syntax as for image files. It also has limited support for metadata display on file description pages.
Syntax synopsis[edit | edit source]
- Display a video at its nominal size. Displays a still image from the midpoint with a play button to start an embedded player.
- Show a placeholder for a sound file, with a play button to start an embedded player.
- Show a video in a floating thumbnail box
- Show a video embedded in an image gallery
- [[File:Video.ogg|noicon]], [[File:Audio.ogg|noicon]]
- Hide the help icon.
- [[File:Video.ogg|noplayer]], [[File:Audio.ogg|noplayer]]
- Show still image or placeholder icon only, do not embed player.
- Use a frame from 1 minute 25 seconds into the video as the placeholder image. A single number is taken as an offset in seconds.
Client support[edit | edit source]
We have explicit support for the following video players:
We have generic support for clients which claim to support application/ogg in navigator.mimeTypes, and for clients which recognise the <video> tag.

Installation[edit | edit source]
To install this extension, add the following to the end of your
require( "$IP/extensions/OggHandler/OggHandler.php" );
Configuration[edit | edit source]
After the require line, add this to your LocalSettings.php:
$wgFFmpegLocation = '/usr/bin/ffmpeg';
you may need to change the path to your ffmpeg. You can find yours by typing: which ffmpeg
You can get better results from oggThumb if you have version 0.9 (unreleased?) of oggvideotools installed, which you will probably have to do from source. (oggvideotools 0.8 does not work as it is missing required output options.)
$wgOggThumbLocation = '/usr/local/bin/oggThumb';
Installing ffmpeg on debian[edit | edit source]
On debian 4 (etch) to 6 (squeeze) execute: "apt-get update; apt-get install ffmpeg ffmpeg2theora". You may also like to have a look at aptitude search ffmpeg
Requirements[edit | edit source]
Requires FFmpeg and PEAR. Requires web access to $wgScriptPath/extensions/OggHandler. See the README file for more information.
