Media Player Plugin#


This plugin provides the embedded media player in your wiki page. Latest version support the media files which played by Windows Mediaplayer or Quicktime Player.

Only tested and worked normally with the major browsers -- IE 6, Firefox 1.0 and Safari 2.0, others may work, but not sure.


I have tested on JSPWIki verison 2.2, 2.4 and 2.6, it works well.

Version 2.1 Released!#

  • Fixed the parameter misspelled issue, and tested compatibility with 2.4.91. Thanks for Ron Atkins' kindly help. (v2.0 to v2.1)
  • Support both the Windows Mediaplayer and Quicktime Player now. User could specify which player they'd like to use to player media file. Of course, some format of media files, such as .mov or .wmv, only supported by one of them. (v2.0)


Please take a look at There're three embedded video on the wiki page.

Download and Installation#

If you'd like to allow wiki user adding embedded video in the pages, you could download the MediaPlayerPlugin package(info), then save it into your lib directory (the same place which your jspwiki.jar exists). Re-reload or re-start your j2ee container.

Source Code#

I attached the source code file for your reference. I modified the source code CorePlugin: Image to become this plugin.

The code is really simple and quite easy to understand, so that I don't put too many comments.

Only one file you need to build the plugin in your wiki system.
