These documentation pages may contain screenshots and instructions for an older version of Roxen CMS; however, most of the information should still be relevant. The Roxen CMS servers will be shut down September 2019.

Media Player Module

Important Update

We highly discourage use of the Media Player module. It embeds video and audio content with an older media player that only works on Flash-enabled devices. This excludes most mobile devices.

Instead use a dedicated video hosting service such as YouTube, Vimeo, or the Princeton University-hosted Media Central service. You can paste the iframe embed code into an RXML component. To avoid SSL mixed content warnings, make sure the source URL of the iframe embed is https or protocol-relative.

Protocol relative URL example:
//www.youtube.com/embed/nn7ZO9Rcwmc

Similarly, for News Module articles, you can paste the iframe embed code via the Source button in the Story field when editing an article at news.princeton.edu.
