TimedMediaHandler directly links to file even on HTML5 browsers after upgrading

2 (talkcontribs)

I tried Firefox and Chrome with a webm file and it would just direct link to the file and give the prompt.

TimedMediaHandler used to work before I upgraded from MW 1.23 to 1.25

Can anyone help?

Additionally, I am using the REL1_25 versions of TimedMediaHandler and MwEmbedSupport

This is the log I got while trying to find the problem

Does anyone have a simplified walkthrough on how to properly install Pear and get it configured? The instructions on the TimedMediaHandler page are confusing at best, and no one seems to have any helpful info. I cannot get TimedMediaHandler working until Pear is installed and running. I am at a total loss. Can anyone please help?

Greetings all. I'm using mediawiki 1.24.0 and I have the extensions installed, they show in special:version.

When I upload a video, and call it with it shows as a red link. When I go to the upload log, it shows the file there. If I click the file from its file page, it plays fine. Just cant load it on an article.

I tried ogg and webm both do the same.

I have timedmediahandler and mwembedsupport.

What am I missing here?

Wiki with Multimedia Viewer and TimedMedia

1 (talkcontribs)

Does anybody know how to combine Multimedia Viewer and TimedMedia extensions in one wiki. It works on Wikipedia, but in my case doesn't. I need Multimedia viewer functionality to present images at full screen. Thanks for tips in advance. Peter

Reply to "Wiki with Multimedia Viewer and TimedMedia" (talkcontribs)

Thanks for a writing a great extension. It is working perfectly for me in chrome, firefox, and for mobile devices. I cannot get the flash fallback to work, however. In IE9 I get the notification "For a better video playback experience we recommend an HTML5 video browser." and when I click play it tries to download the webm version of the file. I've made sure to enable transcoding to h264 which completed successfully. I've tried setting EmbedPlayer.DisableVideoTagSupport to true for debugging. This causes all browsers to behave similarly - ie trying to download the file. Is there a setting I'm missing to enable the flash fallback player?

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

Keep in mind, the flash fallback is not used on Wikimedia, and hence nobody has tested it in years, so perhaps its just broken.

You need to set the following at the bottom of LocalSettings.php

$wgMwEmbedModuleConfig['EmbedPlayer.DisableHTML5FlashFallback' ] = false;

Extension:TimedMediaHandler#Minimal_install_under_Ubuntu_12.04 doesn't sound very good, those repositories have not been updated since 2011; also, it conflicts with advice above which says to use a firefogg repository. How about libav, ibvpx?

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

I've also filed phab:T86477 for further simplification. In the meanwhile I checked the readme and the following commands were enough for me to embed a WebM video from Commons (might be different when not using apt.wikimedia.org though):

apt-get libav-tools oggvideotools ffmpeg2theora
nano LocalSettings.php # Enable mwEmbedSupport, TimedMediaHandler, InstantCommons
php maintenance/update.php
php maintenance/rebuildLocalisationCache.php # Update magic words to avoid exceptions, if using l10n cache

Over at en:wiki:VPT I started "Subtitles showing up with soundfile". My question (and need) is to switch off any CC (Closed captioning).

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

Not currently. There is an option to disable the cc button (e.g. [[File:Sumanah-wcusa-2014-keynote.ogg|disablecontrols=timedText]]) but then its just stuck in the default captions.

If not be able to support then when will mp3 support added?

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

That format is not a priority for this extension (The primary goal is to support a/v formats used by Wikimedia. For political reasons its very unlikely Wikimedia will be using this format)

If you put the following at the bottom of LocalSettings.php, it might work, no guarantees:

$wgMediaHandlers['audio/mpeg'] = 'Mp4Handler';
$wgFileExtensions[] = 'mp3';

You may want to consider something like mw:Extension:Mp3Handler
