The oxy_video built-in form control is used for providing a mechanism to play videos.

The oxy_video form control supports the following properties:

  • href - The absolute or relative location of a resource. This property is mandatory. Relative values are resolved relative to the CSS. If you have media resources relative to the XML document, you can specify their paths like this:
    oxy_video(href, oxy_url(oxy_base-uri(), 'ex.mp4')), width, 400px, height, 300px)
  • width - Specifies the width of the content area using relative (em, ex), absolute (in, cm, mm, pt, pc, px), and percentage (followed by the % character) length units.
  • height - Specifies the height of the form control area using relative (em, ex), absolute (in, cm, mm, pt, pc, px), and percentage (followed by the % character) length units.
Example: oxy_video Form Control
object {
    content:
        oxy_video(
            href, 'resources/video.mp4',
            width, 400px,
            height, 300px),
}
Tip: To insert a sample of the oxy_video form control in a CSS file (or LESS file), invoke the Content Completion Assistant by pressing Ctrl + Space (Command + Space on OS X) and select the oxy_video code template.
