Media Element provides HTML5 video and audio elements by using
mediaelement.js . This is a jQuery based JavaScript plugin that
enables the video and audio tags using h.264 to work under browsers
that do not support the tag or the codec and provides a consistent
interface across all browsers.

This is a port from the Drupal module of the same name, version 7.x-1.2

Status

This is a working port but please report any problems.

Installation

  • Download MediaElement from http://mediaelementjs.com/

  • Unzip into a libraries directory supported by the libraries module
    with the name mediaelement (e.g., libraries/mediaelement). Note
    that the essential library files are in subdirectory /build
    i.e. libraries/mediaelement/build

  • Install the libraries and mediaelement modules using the official
    Backdrop CMS instructions at https://backdropcms.org/guide/modules

  • Use the configuration page at /admin/config/media/mediaelement to
    check that the library is working and optionally to
    enable mediaelement.js site wide.

Usage example

  • Add a field of type file to your content type, making sure that
    upload of an appropriate file type is allowed e.g. mp3

  • Configure the display settings for this field (using Manage Display),
    selecting the format MediaElement Audio or MediaElement Video as appropriate.

  • Adjust the width and height format settings if necessary.

This port to Backdrop would not, of course, be possible without all
the work done by the developers and maintainers of the Drupal module.
