This neat project brings the cool MediaElement.js 2.16.4 (HTML5/Flash/Silverlight video player) to the Rails asset pipeline. NOTE: This gem requires jquery to be included, which shouldn't be an issue.
All you have to do is:
Add the gem to the list of required gems in your
# ... gem "mediaelement_rails" # ...
//= require mediaelement_rails
Load the Mediaelement CSS in your
/* *= require mediaelement_rails * and optionally: *= require mediaelement_rails/mejs-skins */
Wanna use MediaElement (not the player) only?
This is easy as hell too!
Don't include any CSS and include the following in your
application.js to get it working:
//= require mediaelement_rails/rails
Anything else I should know?
Nothing special! This project includes all assets you might need.
- Add support for
flashmediaelement-cdn.swffor cases when the assets are hosted on a different domain than the rails application.
- Setup appraisal gem to test against rails 3.x and 4.x
This project rocks and uses MIT-LICENSE.
