Hi Paulo,

Is it possible to add an extension to the wiki that allows us to include
embeded videos?
Something like this:

I'm unfortunately rather busy this week, so I hope one of the other
admins can jump in.

One option would be to allow the embed tag with the hack shown at, but I think some
extension-based solution would be better, as the one above is just a
hack that has to be included after every upgrade.

Maybe one of the MediaWiki Widgets in the respective extensions allows
doing so. I'd prefer if we could use embedding, rather than uploading
videos to our own server.

Hi Florian.

There's a Mediawiki extension called EmbedVideo. It's quite simple to
install it. Just uncompress it to the extensions directory and declare it to
the LocalSettings.php and it's done.

EmbedVideo supports several video hosting sites. Some of the more popular
ones include:

    youtube (regular and HD videos)
    google video

For a complete list of of supported sites, see the EmbedVideo wiki at


Would be great if someone could research and install.
