This has been available in the core out of the box since 2.2.85 about 4
years ago (2016-03-31)
Insert the svg in your page like you would insert another image. All
browsers released in the last 8 years support it:

The authors of these recipes may not check the Talk pages, maybe try to
contact them via e-mail.
I wrote and maintain a "competing" addon
https://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/Ape that does video and audio among
other embedded content, and there are other recipes for audio and video
-- there are solutions and you have a choice.
BTW Flash has reached end of life, and is no longer officially supported

It is not only
"Cookbook.DotsInLinks for PmWiki <= 2.2.55"
that doesn't work with PHP 7.2. It is
"all of PmWiki <= 2.2.55"
that doesn't work with PHP 7.2.
Indeed, since 2.2.55 I have been busy publishing and documenting 70
(seventy) PmWiki versions and written 3 different versions for that same
There are even busier people who simply cannot find the time to upgrade,
and their hosting provider finally got them. :-)
My company provides upgrade and migration services (for hire) to busy
people for any PmWiki installation including addons -- get in touch.

We add the recipes that we know to work in PHP 7.2 to the category
[[!PHP72]]. Currently 207 Cookbook pages and 76 skins are listed there:
If a recipe is not there, test it but assume it might not work in PHP
