Open, LowestPublic


So we can get ready to migrate to videojs we should make a menu plugin for videojs.

There are no steps to reproduce since this is a feature request.

With menus the features can be, being able to download the videos as you can in kaultra player, we should have the ability to flag the video to make it easy to report videos for violations or copyright.

We should also add the ability to view the video description in videojs.

I found something like but it isent a menu and won't show all the src, we could base the plugin on that.

The description part is covered by ticket T132493: Video.js player needs a link to the description page

I very much argue that we don't need a page to download the derivatives. This is already provided by the Transcode table on File description pages nowadays, and isn't really something that the average user will find useful.

We should not duplicate functionality to achieve feature parity. Instead we consider what makes a better, more usable, easier to understand player.

@TheDJ ok maybe we could add a feedback button, but could we make transcodes more user friendly by maybe using oojs ui for the table instead of the plain table.

Also what about move transcodes up near the player for easy spotting. Making it easy to download if the user wanted to.

@TheDJ we also need to add

Embed on a wiki


Embed on a page

to videojs.

@TheDJ Using my own website to stream a video from commons, I found that you carn't download from transcodes table for videojs but you can only download the original video in kaultra player on the transcode table.

Would it be possible to be able to show the full transcode table across all wiki's that are playing videos from commons. please.
