I haven't tested yet video5 and it looks OK, but for playing videos in
pmwiki here is what I have tested, and it works great for me:


You just have to do this to enable commons video files:
# in httpd.conf add:
# AddType video/ogg .ogv
# AddType video/mp4 .mp4
# AddType video/webm .webm

If you prefer to play flash, which I don't recommend because it
doesn't play on mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) such as android
or ipad, you can use swf-sites.php from
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/Flash and then you can stream
videos from youtube or vimeo. The advantage is you don't need to host
the videos and it won't take your bandswidth, and if people are using
mobile devices they still can see your videos if you provide a direct
link to your youtube page (swf-sites.php won't help here on mobile
