Installation

General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.

Configuration

Default parameter can be set in your trac.ini file:

[moviemacro]
width = 320px
height = 180px
splash = black.jpg  ; should be put in /deployed/to/movie/htdocs/img/

Also, for preview rendering to be available for all attachments, set the max_preview_size in the [mimeviewer] section of trac.ini to be greater than or equal to max_size in the [attachment] section:

[attachment]
max_size = 262144

[mimeviewer]
max_preview_size = 262144

Note: For attachments, Flowplayer tries to resolve to an appropriate size, but ignoring width/height settings. This is because Flowplayer settings has adaptiveRatio=true by default in MovieMacro. It is preferred to adjust the player size automatically, rather than select a particular size in almost every case. If you don't want that behavior, pass adaptiveRatio=false as a query string and style=width:320px; height:240px; parameter. See also: https://flowplayer.org/docs/setup.html

Examples

Embed youtube video

[[Movie(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dfWzp7rYR4&start=5&rel=0,style=width:320px; height:240px;)]]

The player's parameter can be passed as a query string. See also: https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters

Embed metacafe video

[[Movie(http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1768855/the_size_of_all_planets_are_relative/)]]

Embed vimeo video

[[Movie(http://vimeo.com/106808835)]]

For countries where bandwidth comes at a premium, I would recommend you download the flash-video file (.flv) and save it in your project's htdocs directory. For YouTube movies, try youtube-dl.

Then reference your file like so:

[[Movie(htdocs://site/filename.flv)]]

You can also attach the file to a ticket, wiki page or keep it in you SVN repository. Reference the file like so:

  • Simple form if an attachment is in the ticket/wiki:
    [[Movie(sample.webm)]]
    
  • Restricted ImageMacro format style:
    [[Movie(ticket:123:sample.mp4)]]
    [[Movie(wiki:test/sub/sample.mp4)]]
    
  • Fully qualified form:
    • from your project's htdocs: htdocs://site/filename.flv
    • from a plugin's htdocs: htdocs://plugin/dir/filename.flv
    • from an attachment on ticket #123: ticket://123/filename.flv
    • from an attachment on a wiki page: wiki://WikiWord/filename.flv
    • from your SVN repository revision [1024], you can also use HEAD as your revision: source://1024/trunk/docs/filename.flv
