Download the zipped source from here.


You can check out FlashEmbedMacro from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


From a bash command prompt:

cd flashembedmacro/0.11
python bdist_egg
cp dist/TracFlashEmbedMacro-0.95RC1-py2.4.egg /your-trac-project/plugins/
apachectl graceful


This macro produces html code for embedding Flash content from certain services, by its 'key' and content id. It also can embed simple SWF by its URL.

Available keys:

Optional parameters:

  • w and h: width and height of embedded flash object

For a global installation, you need to ensure the following is added to the [components] section of your trac.ini file:

tracflashembed.macros.embedmacro = enabled
tracflashembedmacro = enabled


Generic examples


Embed SWF by url



Embed SWF from attachment



If swf parameter starts with 'http://', 'https://' or '/', it's treated as URL. Otherwise it is processed as an attachment.

The 'attachment:' prefix is optional, so the examples above are equivalent.

If it doesn't play, check this setting in the trac.ini file:

render_unsafe_content = true

Embed FLV video

Note, that you will need JW Player hosted somewhere.


The url for flv file is handled the same as swf.
