Play Video

Postby svillanueva » Fri Feb 22, 2008 3:17 am


we think it would we interesting to show the video in the same frame instead of downloading it. Is there any way to do that by means of OJS modification? Would it be very difficult?

Thank you,

Sergi Villanueva.

Hi Sergi,

What you may want to look into is uploading an HTML file as the article, but embed the code to play the video in the file; and have the video file uploaded either as a supplementary file or in another way.

There's a conversation about linking to audio/video supplementary files here:

Hi all,

There is also a set of MIME types that are considered "inlineable" -- i.e. that can be sent directly to the browser without downloading first. These are listed in registry/inlineTypes.txt. You might want to try adding the MIME type for your video to the list.
