@Borys Kozielski: For better understanding of the actual problem to solve, an you please provide a link to a page where the player does not play audio files, plus browser and operating system information? I'm surprised to hear that it does not work for you. Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 15:32, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

@AKlapper (WMF): User @Friedel Völker: has good suggestion - just add standard HTML5 player for mediawiki, that will be great. Borys Kozielski (talk) 13:16, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Borys Kozielski I think it already use HTML5 by default? Gryllida 22:55, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Please add a HTML5 Player for ogg/ogv to standard MediaWiki. --Friedel Völker (talk) 07:11, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Speed adjustment (2x, 3x, 0.6x, etc) would be very welcome. HLHJ (talk) 06:04, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
