WP Amara Shortcode


A simple wordpress plugin to enable shortcode.


Insert [amara url=http://URL/OF/VIDEO] into the content of your page where you want to display the subtitled video (supported video formats: Ogg, WebM, flv, mp4, Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion).

Optionally, you can set some other options, like explained on Amara Embed Code Usage Guide.

To insert the content option for FLV files use the format content='key1:value1|key2:value2|...|keyN:valueN' (note the wrapping quotes)

To insert the base_state language option, just add it like base_state=XX (where XX is the ISO-639-3 language code)


[amara url= color1=0xFF0000 width=640 height=480]

[amara url= color=FF0000 width=640 height=480]

[amara url= width=640 height=480 content='url:flowplayer.content-3.2.0.swf|height:220|padding:30|backgroundColor:#112233|opacity:0.7|backgroundGradient:[0.1, 0.1, 1.0]|style:{p: {fontSize: 40}}']
