I am trying to play a WMV file on a page, and I was following exactly the documentation guided: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF33/Embedding+Multimedia+Content, below is my wiki code:
As an example my WMV's absolute URL is: http://[my-confluence-domain]/download/attachments/457473/video.wmv, and my wiki code is below:
No matter what I try, confluence (I am using 3.3.1) always generate a <img> tag on the page, and embeded the wmv video as img's src, I don't know why!!!! Please help!
Thank you for your help! It does NOT work, I described my steps below:
The reulst is: it generate <img> tag:
<img src="myvideo.wmv" />
And if I just give it a "relative path", it always said cannot find the attachment:
Unable to render embedded object: File (Wei+Ye%27s+Instant+Meeting-20120823+0059-1.wmv) not found.
I found that higher version of confluence such as 3.5 seems has better support for Multimedia file, the links I found below:
But how can 3.3.1 support inserting video?? Its documentation said yes!!
Sorry I can't provide an answer but I can corroborate the issue you are having. We are on 3.3.1 also and I tried repeating your steps myself.
While I didn't get any errors like you noticed, I did find that I couldn't embed a video attachment either. I could put a link to the attachment, but when I tried to embed it directly I couldn't find a way to do it. The Widget macro didn't work when giving it the link of the video, it just gave me a cog image instead.
Seems that upgrading might help, or maybe its worth finding out if there is a third party plugin for Confluence that will handle this?
Actually I raised a bug about this behavior, as you can see here:
Basically it seems that .WMV files cannot run neither Firefox or Chrome.
I would strongly suggest that you vote on this bug report to increase its popularity and add it to your watchlist for future updates.
I hope this helps.
