I've added a Mediawiki extension to enable embedded video on elinux.org.

Here's basic usage instructions.  The extension's project page is
here: https://github.com/Whiteknight/mediawiki-embedvideo

The EmbedVideo parser function expects to be called in any of the
following ways:

{{#ev:service|id}}
{{#ev:service|id|width}}
{{#ev:service|id|width|align}}
{{#ev:service|id|width|align|desc}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc|align}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc|align|width}}

Where:

service is the name of a video sharing service (See "service name" in
the list below)
id is the id of the video to include
width (optional) is the width in pixels of the viewing area (height
will be determined automatically)
align (optional) is an alignment (float) attribute. May be "left" or "right".
desc (optional) is a short description to display beneath the video
when it is aligned

For example, to include the famous "evolution of dance" YouTube video,
you'd enter:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg}}

And if you wanted scaled down to thumbnail size, on the right with a
short description, you could use:

{{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg|100|right|This is an embedded video!}}
