Description Carl Fürstenberg 2008-03-01 02:00:48 UTC
The cortado java player doesn't handle ogg-speex, which would be really useful when uploading speeches.
Comment 1 Tim Starling 2008-03-03 22:38:46 UTC
Apparently it doesn't fail gracefully either.

TimedMediaHandler was deployed at the beginning of November 2012, see and for more information.
It is based on HTML5 and supports closed captions, timed text, WebM, etc.

This bug report was reported about "Cortado". With TimedMediaHandler being in place, Cortado is now ONLY used as a fallback for web browsers that do not support any of the video codecs we offer but have Java installed. This currently is Apple Safari without XiphQt installed, or Microsoft Internet Explorer with Java applet installed. 

Please add a comment here in case that you still face the problem described (now with Cortado inside of TimedMediaHandler) if using one of the browsers mentioned above. In that case, this report should be moved to product="MediaWiki extensions" and component="TimedMediaHandler" in this bug tracker.

Issues that also happen with Cortado without TimedMediaHandler should be reported to instead.

TMH doesn't seem to fail that gracefully on although perhaps it would prevent upload or something like that, I have no idea.

Hence moving componenent. TMH should probably (in ideal world) be transcoding to vorbis or something. OTOH speex is not that popular, and being replaced by Opus from what I understand.
Comment 6 Jan Gerber 2013-02-12 18:42:38 UTC
TMH transcodes to Vorbis for formats that are not supported by browsers now. This also works as fallback with Cortado.
