Magic word not found [solved?][edit]

Same error as below: (any more ideas after having updated my wiki?)

Exact same backtrace using the trunk version for Mediawiki 1.15.3... and 1.15.4...


Was using the trunk version for Mediawiki 1.15.1

I'm getting the following error: (does anyone know what seems to be the problem?)

What the hell is link markup?[edit]

Good question...the change was mistaken on my part. I looked at the surface syntax and not at your code. The implementation type "link markup" was meant to gather together examples of parser extensions that modified the normal interpretation of [[...]] syntax (a la Extension:Semantic MediaWiki). Yours most definitely does not - it adds a media type to $wgMediaHandlers. Apologies. Egfrank 07:19, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Whole archive of files for OggHandler to download[edit]

Why you don't provide it? It's impossible (very long time) to get all files apart from http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/OggHandler and subdirs.

I am Windows user.

I have instaled SVN for Windows and resolve this task. --Tsim 21:48, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
For any checkout from SVN for mediawiki simply modify the path given for the source code
svn checkout http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/phase3

to whatever it is you wish to download. So, in this case, replace phase3 with extensions/OggHandler to get

svn checkout http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/OggHandler

Alternatively, you can go into the link provided on the extension page, which points to viewvc and simply replace viewvc with svnroot, to get to the same place. Hope that is helpful to any who want to save time downloading OggHandler or other extensive extensions. --rowenrye 06:03, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Is it possible to get files with TortoiseCVS ?[edit]

How to configure TortoiseCVS for this task?

--Tsim 17:08, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

You can not do this with any CVS client. It is a SVN repository. You should install TortoiseSVN or some other SVN client. Once you install it, you right-click in the File Explorer, select SVN Checkout, enter "http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/OggHandler" under "URL of repository," and something like "C:\\foo\bar\extensions\OggHandler" under "Checkout directory."

Fatal error: Declaration of OggTransformOutput::toHtml() must be compatible with that of MediaTransformOutput::toHtml()[edit]

I have installed OggHandler extension as in README.

At any page of my wiki get the error:

You need to use MediaWiki 1.11. -- Tim Starling 10:44, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

I have installed v1.11. Now I can see on :Version page

LanguageGetMagic        OggHandler::registerMagicWords

There is no strings like

Media handlers
OggHandler      Handler for Ogg Theora and Vorbis files, with JavaScript player.

ogg link look as


What can you advise else?

For ffmpeg I use this string:

$wgFFmpegLocation = 'c:/xamp/util/ffmpeg';

--Tsim 10:48, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Darn blank screen !![edit]

I installed what I assume is the latest Ogg files and also FFmpeg ... I added cortado-ovt-stripped-0.2.2-patched.jar ...

I edited LocalSettings as the README file suggests and when I refresh my Wiki screen, i get a blank screen ..

If I hash out the includeonce line I get my Wiki screen back .. The install and Readme is rather cryptic, but

I'm sure I followed everything ... I get the OggHandler showing in the Versions page when I un-hash the includeonly line ..

What did I do wrong ??

--Dick 11:20, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I downloaded the extension via SVN and do not have any problem. A blank screen generally means that the extension can't be loaded and usually because of a wrong path to the extension. Have a look at the logs of your httpd server (/var/log/httpd/mywikiserver.log on Gnu/Linux).--Nbrouard 07:52, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Same-ish problem[edit]

I downloaded everything via SVN and I'm happy to say that after way too much horsing around the audio player now works. However, when I try to use a video .ogg file the page goes white. Any ideas?

Smaller Media player icon (without 2 CR) and inline icon (how to?)[edit]

Many thanks for your OggHandler. But we would like a prettier layout of the media player icon. We have a dictionary with a lot of terms being voice recorded, and it should look like this:


Studiem ekonomických a společenských podmíněností populačního vývoje na straně jedné a studiem důsledků populačního vývoje na ekonomické a sociální procesy se zabývá ekonomická a sociální demografie (104-1), 104-2). Zabývá se vztahy, které existují mezi populací a zdroji 1 (

), kterými ekonomika dané společnosti disponuje a které jí umožňují vytvářet bohatství a zajišťovat služby n. realizovat produkci 2. V poslední době se důraz při tomto studiu soustřeďuje na vztah mezi populačním růstem (703-11) a jeho složkami a ekonomickým růstem (903-1), zejména s ohledem na spotřebu 3 (spotřebu), spoření 4 (spoření) a investice 5 (investice).

Unfortunately, the OggHandler extension is not set on this wiki, but if you copy the above code on a working wiki, you will see how it is badly output and not operational.

In fact the input is ([[Image:901_1_1_cs_II zdroje.ogg|noicon|zdroje]]) because the recorded term is in the nominative form zdroje which differs from the text conjugated form. We ahve to warn the reader (and audio listener) that what he will listen is different of what is written.

And thus, after the icon, I would like an additional argument, which simply could be written. I could use a template, like the audio template on wiktionary for that additional useful feature but the main obstacle remains with a too huge Play Sound icon and two carriage returns (one before the icon and one after) which makes the layout horrible.

How could I do whithout entering the OggHandler source code? Many thanks. --Nbrouard 08:28, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

  • In fact the Ogg-handler extension is on this wiki. And as I did not want to pollute this wiki with an irrelevant ogg file, I used the En-us-student.ogg file of commons instead of a real Czech audio file. Thus we can see what I would like: a smaller media player icon for audio which won't break the line of text.--Nbrouard 18:10, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Any hint? --Nbrouard 08:12, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Is anyone there who installed OggHandler under MS Windows hosting?[edit]

Please write about your experience. --Tsim 10:24, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

  • Me not sorry. --Nbrouard 18:43, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

It was developed on Windows, it should work just as well there as it does on Linux. -- Tim Starling 06:26, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

FFmpeg Location[edit]

I've gotten Ogghandler and FFmpeg installed but I can't seem to make $wgFFmpegLocation set to a location outside of the wiki base directory. If I try to move FFmpeg inside of the wiki then it doesn't find the libraries. Could somebody give me some direction on how to resolve this. ffmpeg currently resides in /home/usr/bin the libraries in /home/usr/lib and the wiki at /home/usr/public_html/wiki/. Thanks. --LeeAtwood 02:37, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I had to take --enable-shared of the ./configure

Larger Files[edit]

I have a problem with some fairly large video clips - when I try to upload my 50 Mb ogg/theora video file, all I get is a white page. I can upload such files by temporarily disabling OggHandler by commenting out the appropriate "require()" line in LocalSettings.php, but if I enable OggHandler again and go to the Image:MyBigOggFile.ogg page, it again is just white. A 400kb 5 second clip encoded in the same fashion works fine.

Is there some way to work around this? We have a wiki with some instructional papers at my workplace, and we would really like to put instructional videos on it as well.

Technical details:

  • System: Mac OS 10.5.2
  • PHP Version: 5.2.5
  • MediaWiki: 1.11.1
  • MySQL: 5.0.41

The last few lines of wiki.log upon hitting the blank screen:

Logged in from session
File::getPropsFromPath: Getting file info for /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/wiki/images/e/e4/Eos.ogg

and then it just stops. Any ideas?

The cut-off point seems to be between 33 and 39.4 Mb.

Installation problems[edit]

Hi! I really need your extension. I've installed it (here is the test example: http://www.ossus.pl/biblioteka/Grafika:Akuku.ogg) and... not working. I didin't install FFmpeg beacouse i have no need to use ogg video - only audio. As far as I know FF mpeg is used for vide (am I right?) So could you help with it? I think it's some common problem, or my mistake, but I'm checking it stap by step again and agin and i didn't see any errors. -- 13:28, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

missing files ?[edit]

extensions/OggHandler/PEAR/File_Ogg/File/Ogg.php need there files in line 114:

  • PEAR.php
  • PEAR/Exception.php

but seem not exist.
Crochet.david 16:10, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

OggHandler currently requires that you have a basic PEAR installation. --brion 16:46, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

I got the same problem, and I don't manage to resolve it, is there somebody who can tell me how to do please?

Same problem!!

You see! I installed pear but still show:

Warning: require_once(PEAR.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /extensions/OggHandler/PEAR/File_Ogg/File/Ogg.php on line 114

--Zoglun (talk) 21:59, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Problem solved!!

  1. Use SSH type php -c /path/to/php.ini -r 'echo get_include_path()."\n";'
  2. You will got .:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear
  3. Then simply add include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear' to your php.ini last line
  4. restart php
  5. everything done!

error message[edit]

Now, i've got this :

Implementing a Flash player[edit]

People generally do not like having to install plugins or download additional software and while we Java player many computers do not have it installed either. However, even on the most locked down computer terminal in any library I've walk into they have flash. There was a discussion xiph mailing list and Tor-Einar Jarnbjo presented a working demo. It apparently require a 1.5-2.0 GHz computer to run well; the audio is choppy on my 930 MHz box, but I would prefer it over no sound.

Those interested on an implementing for MediaWiki may find this Article on using ActionScript to play sound useful. -- Dispenser 02:10, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

No sound with Cortado (Java)[edit]

I don't understand why but with the Cortado (Java) (selected) the player doesn't show up and there is no sound at all (I'm talkig about an Ogg Vorbis audio file). It worked once, when I installed it but the day after, it wasn't anymore. If someone have an idea why, thanks a lot. --Sanji-kun 19:08, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't think this is the way it is supposed to be (small problem)[edit]


The thumbnail on the right shows on top an OggHandler thumb with the noicon parameter, and below a thumb with the icon. Both have the little enlarge icon that takes you to the same page that the blue 'i' icon takes you to. If both do the same thing them I'm wondering what the point of the blue icon is. If it were up to me then I would remove it from the code or not have it display by default. It would also be nice if the mouse over message on the enlarge icon were something like "description" rather than "enlarge." Not a big problem, but I don't think this is the way it was intended to work.

Why Only Uploaded Files?[edit]

Why does this functionality only work with uploaded files? Would it not be better to allow embedding of videos on other locations, e.g. YouTube? --Robinson Weijman 13:01, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Why no controls for Safari?[edit]

When using HTML 5 <audio> and <video> elements, OggPlayer.js does not set the controls attribute if the browser is Safari. Why?

Without controls:

  • The audio element is invisible
  • Audio and video elements cannot be controlled in any way by the user (including pausing or restarting them)

With controls:

  • Audio elements are visible and controllable
  • Controls appear across the bottom of video elements when the cursor hovers over them

I'm using Safari 4, with Perian providing support for Ogg. It's nice to have some level of support thanks to the HTML 5 elements (before, it would admonish me to install the Xiph components and fall back to the godawful Java player, even though QuickTime was perfectly capable of playing the files), but I'm flummoxed why you would make media uncontrollable for Safari users. 08:33, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

ffmpeg on 64 Bit systems[edit]

Pictures can not be extracted from ogg streams on (some) 64 bit systems; the error "/usr/bin/ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: failed to map segment from shared object: Cannot allocate memory" occures on generating the previews.

The problem can be solved by increasing LocalSettings.php' $wgMaxShellMemory: to double the available space from the default of 102400 to 204800 makes all working nicely again.

Revision 55041 broke OggHandler[edit]

OggHandler is currently broken in trunk.

I was getting the following error:

This is for MediaWiki 1.15.1.

I've located the problem in this revision. After reverting these changes on my wiki OggHandler is working perfectly again.

--Xeoz 23:48, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Run the 1.15 version of OggHandler. —Emufarmers(T|C) 21:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh, so the latest version is compatible with the latest mediawiki alpha? Sorry, I didn't check it with the in-development version of mediawiki. I figured if it was broke on 1.15 is must be broke for them all. --Xeoz 23:29, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Thumbnail is grey[edit]

Hello. I install OggHandler on a MediaWiki 1.5. I upload commons:File:Cat claws.ogg the video play well, but the thumbnail looks very bad (a very bad jpg with a gray level). Is anybody have an idea? Thanks a lot. Bayo 19:51, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

I test using ffmpeg command line, and the result is ok. Bayo 20:32, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Lay-out problems[edit]

1: When the control is placed in a right-aligned div or table, and the play-button is clicked, more than half of it disappears on the right side of the screen, also causing a horizontal scrollbar to be visible in the browser. A (QAD) temporary fix is to add audio {float:right;} to its style, but then another problem shows:
2: The control is semi-transparent, so underlying text is visible, and (even worse!) it is almost impossible to click the pause-button (the mousepointer shows a "text"-cursor). - Erik Baas 22:17, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Pause button[edit]

There is not any player to pause the file, just have the button to start and then there is no way to stop the sound. What can be? 00:48, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

The only player that appear is the cortado (java), but don't show the players that appear on the Wikimedia (Native browser support). What can be?2 02:16, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

FFMPEG keyframes problem[edit]

Since I can't fight out key frames problem in ffmpeg (if seek jumps NOT on keyframe - ffmpeg produces rubbish jpeg) I'v used ffmpegthumbinailer http://code.google.com/p/ffmpegthumbnailer/
It's in debian repository (if anyone ask :) ).
Very brutal way of using it, is add after line 237

                wfEscapeShellArg( $dstPath ) . ' 2>&1';)

this code

                $cmd = '/usr/bin/ffmpegthumbnailer '.
                        ' -i ' . wfEscapeShellArg( $file->getPath() ) .
                        ' -o ' . wfEscapeShellArg( $dstPath ) .
                        ' -s 0 -t ' . intval( $thumbTime ) . ' 2>&1';

I tried but it's as crappy as ffmpeg

Setting the default player[edit]

I was wondering how to set the default player for all users to Cortada, like Wikipedia. The native support looks like crap in our context (we use it inside an infobox, and the Cortada player fits nicely inside.)Neo of ZW 02:34, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Request for selecting a portion of media for playback[edit]


Is it feasible to introduce two new parameters into the Ogghandler? They would be to view/listen to a chosen portion of the original; something like:

|starttime = 0:00:00
|endtime = 0:00:00

I think this could reduce the amount of space used up by derivatives of larger files with points of interest at a particular portion. An example of what I mean is here where many portions exist, and the movie files really take up a lot of space. In place of this, having a single movie file and just having parameters to designate which portion is shown would greatly reduce the size of files held in Commons. This could also have other applications for verifying particular parts of the media, like in Wikisource. Using Sequencer does not solve this problem as it creates separate files. I imagine the specified parameters to either point to the positions (as in having the original file load) or truncate the non-selected parts; either way I think this is a capability that would be beneficial to a lot of projects. - Theornamentalist 22:52, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Creepy thumbnails[edit]

I had erroneous thumbnails that had nothing to do with the video. Otherwise I was able to play them both locally and through the wiki.

The system is Debian 5.0, mediawiki 1.16.0. I confirmed with the command line

ffmpeg -ss 10 -i <path to ogv video> -an -vframes 1 ~/test.jpg

that it is indeed a decode error (same bad image). Downloading and compiling the latest ffmpeg solved the problem. The Debian ffmpeg version was SVN-r0.5.2, the downloaded version is 0.6.1. According to the video header the encoder causing the problem was ffmpeg2theora-0.27. Geresdi

Request OggHandler support for wikia.com[edit]

Recently i discovered that on wikipedia videos you can choose an given fram intial stil image, overall it increase the chance that people may play the video file. So if anyone can help me out or contacting the devs they maybe can include the extension on wikia.

Strange behaviour with the extension[edit]

Mediawiki 1.16.5 - PHP 5.3.6 - MySQL 5.5.13

When the extension is commented in the local settings the links to the ogg files become red and a click consequently leads to the update page. If uncommented it is blue but than only links and no direct embed in the article.

Any ideas? Donxello 21:34, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

MW 1.19 + OggHander - new error (ffmpeg ćan't overwrite file)[edit]

I'm not sure when this happened (new OggHander or new mediawiki) - I don't use ogg video on daily basis. But extension stooped producing thumbnails - just shows output error. It says that ffmpeg can't overwrite file that already exists - simple code change fixes problem:

Is it possible to read ogg files stored in an external website[edit]

For example, I would like to read an ogg file in another web site : www.awebsite.com/a_ogg_file.ogg

Still used in Wikimedia sites?[edit]

Extension:OggHandler claims that this extension is used in Wikimedia sites. However, hasn't it be completely phased out by TimedMediaHandler?--Qgil (talk) 01:11, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Apparently true. I updated both pages to reflect this change. Hopefully this extension will still get maintenance in future since it is a very popular one. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:40, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
