Multimedia macro


I have just upgraded to Confluence version 5.1.4. I have attached a video file (mp4) that needs to be displayed on the page. I am using the Multimedia marco to display the video.

However, the the video seems to be stuck but the audio plays on. Also, there are no controls on it (play and pause) like there is on JWPlayer.

How can I fix this? Is this possible, what I'am asking??

Also, can I embed the video on the page?

Hello Minesh, videos are tricky sometimes, since they come in different encoding flavors. You may like to add the video to a specialized hosting website such as Youtube or Vimeo and use the Confluence Widget Connector to embed the media within Confluence. Does this makes sense to you?

Hi Minesh,

Can you reproduce the same behavior using other files? If so, probably we are facing a bug here and I would recommend to get in touch with atlassian support so we can replicate and open a new bug report for you.

If the issue occurs with only one file, then probably the issue is with the file. If you can recreate the file again to test that would be great.

I hope that helps!


I converted the file to avi, and got the same result.

Is there a media player with controls (stop/start button) for confluence 5.1.4.

If so, where do I find it??
