#5720 assigned defect

I would like to be able to add flashfiles from our site into tickets inside our trac installation...

Reported by: magnus.zetterberg@… Owned by: lcordier
Priority: normal Component: MovieMacro
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Currently, taking this link ( and placing it inside your movieMacro plugin does not work on our highlights movies we have on our portal.

Since we use TRAC for ticketing on bugs etc on our gameportal, having the ability to simply attach problems from movies and goal situation which our end users has created would be a very great benefit to us.

I have successfully added your plugin and installed into our trac without any problems and it works great, however our movies which we have on our portal does not work.

Is it possible to request someone/the author of the plugin to add functionality for our plugins as well, enabling us to use your plugin for our ticket handling in the future?

For my plugin to work I'll need a .flv file to access, or an STANDARD method to embed flash players. From the source code of the site it should be possible.

<script type="text/javascript">
	swfobject.embedSWF("widgets/video/video_player.swf?cacheControl=4", "video_player_content", "480", "392", "8.0.0", false, false, {wmode:"transparent", base:"flash/", bgcolor:"#ffffff", AllowScriptAccess:"always", flashvars:"site_sounds=false&highlightID=436856&autostart=true&nosplash=true"}, {id: "video_player"});

I'll look into it when I get some time, maybe this weekend.

Regards, Louis.

I tried over the weekend to embed the player, but it appears that the player might not allow embeddeding on foreign sites. It might be that the player (.swf) looks at the WEB_REFERER header in the web request and simply not allow foreign sites from using it. It is also problematic to reference the video you want to play.

When I get time this week I will look further into this, but the initial overview doesn't look good.

Regards, Louis.
