Flash Plugin#

We wanted to easily add Wink flash movies to the Wiki.

[{INSERT WHERE flash=mymovie,height=379,width=456}]

It works with Wink created .swf files, but not tried with any others.

List of params

  • flash the name of flash movie file
  • height the height of the movie in pixels
  • width the width of the movie in pixels
  • params show a list of parameters
Advanced params

They are only advanced in that changing them has never been tested.

The Flash Plugin requires two settings in the file. The jspwiki.moviesdir is a directory path on the file system that is also servable content e.g. like an images directory. The jspwiki.moviesurl is the url suffix to the main site that points to the movies dir, ie. the browser's view of the movies directory.


  • jspwiki.moviesdir= /tediously/long/absolute/file/path/to/perhaps/wiki.war/movies
  • jspwiki.moviewurl= movies

Upload the flash movie#

First define the insert and params. Then use an attachment to upload the .swf file. It must have the same name as the flash parameter. The Flash Plugin will copy the .swf file to the movies directory and then delete the attachment.


The params debug,loop and quality are not supported yet but probably should be. Also not sure how platform friendly the object tag is. It works in Firefox on Windows anyway.

Add new attachment

Only authorized users are allowed to upload new attachments.
