BlueSpice Player is a video player that enables you to play all the usual HTML5 video formats in your wiki.

  • Activated with the <bs: showtime> Video.mp4 </ showtime> tag
  • Settings:
    • change the size
    • start the video immediately (autoplay)
    • play the video in a loop
  • Supported formats: mp4, ogv, flv and webm
  • It is possible to include multiple videos on one page
  • In IE and flv, the HTML5 player falls back to a Flash version (default in VideoJS)
  • For compatibility reasons, bs: jwplayer is also supported as a tag

In the user settings (Special:Perferences) under Appearance, users can set if the videos should start automatically.
