This page explains the use of the Mediawiki Player extension, which can be used on this wiki to embed some video and audio formats.
 Supported formats
Mediawiki Player uses JW Player 5 which can process the following video formats:
- FLV (.flv)
- MP4 (.mp4, .m4v, .f4v, .mov)
- OGG (.ogv)
- WebM (.webm)
Because Mediawiki Player is an extension to the Mediawiki software, it uses 'tags' to embed the video in the wiki page. Tags are in pairs, with an opening tag and a closing tag.
<mediaplayer ''argument=value'' >''mediaURL''</mediaplayer>
The argument may be any parameter or "flashvar" supported by the JW FLV Player. See the list of flashvars for more information regarding options of the JW FLV player.
 Using arguments
<mediaplayer width='500' height='300'>http://www.yourdomain.com/mediafile.flv</mediaplayer>
 Using a preview image

For example, to represent captions.file, use the following code segment
