Usage and Examples

Macro produces html code for embedding flash content from certain service, by it's 'key' and content id. It also can embed simple SWF by it's URL.

Available keys:

Optional parameters:

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

Enable in the trac.ini file

For a global install, you need to ensure the following is added to your [components] section

tracflashembed.macros.embedmacro = enabled
tracflashembedmacro = enabled

Embed YouTube or Vimeo


Embed SWF by url


Embed SWF from attachment


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

The 'attachment:' prefix is optional, so 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'll need JW Player hosted somewhere.


The url for flv file is handled same as swf.
