Required Attributes

name

A unique name for the parameter. The value for the name attribute should be the same as the name attribute for the <param> tag to be inserted with the <object> tag into the source for EditLive!.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to configure parameters of a multimedia type for use with EditLive!. In this case the media type is a Windows Media Player streaming type with the .asx extension.

<editLive>
  ...
  <mediaSettings>
    ...
    <multimedia>
      <types>
        ...
        <type 
          name="Windows Media (Streaming)"
          type="application/x-mplayer2"
          extension="asx"
          allowCustomParams="true"
          urlParam="fileName"
        >
          <param name="animationAtStart" />
          <param name="autoStart" />
          <param name="clickToPlay" />
        </type>
        ...
      </types>
    </multimedia>
  </mediaSettings>
  ...
</editLive>

Remarks

The <param> element can appear multiple times within the <type> element.

The <param> element must be a complete tag; it cannot contain a tag body. Therefore, the tag must be closed in the same line. See the example below:

<param name=... />
  • No labels
