Description Gregory Maxwell 2007-09-09 07:14:34 UTC
Currently cortado has a speaker icon which indicates if audio is enabled in the applet (not even if the file has audio).  The speaker icon confuses a lot of people. It should either pop up a volume knob or at least act as a mute toggle.

I've coded the mute toggle feature, but I'd rather we skip it and make it bring up a slider.
Comment 1 Tim Starling 2008-03-11 12:19:37 UTC
There's not enough space for a pop-up volume control when the applet is in audio-only mode.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-03-11 17:27:01 UTC
Hm, can't it pop up as a separate AWT window or something?

*the terror of java UIs*
Comment 3 Tim Starling 2008-03-12 16:57:53 UTC
With "untrusted java applet" written across it? That'd be a classy volume control. 
Comment 4 Andre Klapper 2012-12-17 12:14:11 UTC
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.
Comment 5 Andre Klapper 2014-02-28 22:40:13 UTC
Wikimedia itself is currently not actively working on Cortado.
If you are still interested in seeing this, please check the existing upstream tickets at and if no ticket exists yet for this request, please create one in upstream. 

Also see comment 4 in this report for more explanation which way Wikimedia Multimedia currently takes. Closing as WONTFIX for Wikimedia itself.
