Secure HTML5 Video Player allows you to play HTML5 video on modern browsers. Videos can be served privately; pseudo-streamed from a secured directory
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
The file name of the video without the file extension. The video directory set in the control panel is searched for files with this name and with file extensions: mp4, m4v, ogv, ogg, theora.ogv, webm, png, jpg, jpeg, and gif. The files that match are automatically used in the video tag and poster displayed in the page. For example, if you have videos: myclip.mp4, myclip.ogv, myclip.webm, and the poster image: myclip.png; you need only set a file value of "myclip". To select a video in a subdirectory within the video directory, use the relative path to the video file from the video directory.
[video file="myclip"] [video file="path/to/myclip"]
