The PopcornEditor extension embeds the standalone version of Mozilla's Popcorn in-browser video editor, allowing Popcorn video projects to be stored as media files on the wiki.

Currently this is early demoware, allowing basic saving but has no playback outside of the editor yet.


  • Download and move the extracted PopcornEditor folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/PopcornEditor
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'PopcornEditor' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
