How do I embed media from my Gallery (video in player)

Hi

I have this media in my Gallery, a video in the jw player, that I'd like to embed into my wiki-page..

I have no problem by embedding youtube or other media in the pages.

How do I show the player embedded in wiki-pages?

Hi,

I think you are asking how to embed a video player, from a video hosted in Composr's own gallery system, into a wiki page.

If you grab the URL to the video file (the contents of the URL field on the edit video form), you can then put it in a media tag…
[media]uploads/galleries/example.mp4[/media]

There's no way to grab that URL automatically right now.

However, if you initially add the video to the File/Media library, you can browse for it in the library when you add the Gallery Video, and also when you add a Comcode Media tag using the Comcode tag assistant (the Comcode icon in the WYSIWYG editor).

As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks, think that solved it..

Regarding the url, that is no problem as I can't upload  ..except through ftp.
- this mean I always refer to media by using the full url.
My hosting is a shared solution with no direct access to setup-files and stuff .. so upload through Composr does not work :-(

Uploading should work, regardless of hosting. All I can think is if it is free ad-funded hosting, that may interfere with our AJAX scripts, or maybe something is otherwise breaking the 'Complex uploader'. You could disable the "Complex uploader" option in Admin Zone > Setup > Configuration > Accessibility options.
