Video plays when published but not in DITA

Post by jcadel » Fri Jun 18, 2021 11:11 pm

Hi,

I insert a video by inserting an object element with these attributes:
  • data: the URL of the video which is hosted on a video hosting site
  • height: 468
  • outputclass: iframe
  • width
It looks like everything is correct, but when I try to test it in Oxygen XML Editor, it doesn't play and gives me a "html5: Video file not found" message.

Yet, when I publish the document, it plays the video successfully.

Is there a reason why the video does not play in Oxygen?

Hi Janice,

Oxygen's in-editor video player is way more limited than a web browser's. So it's possible for things to work better in a web browser.
How does the DITA XML content look like for the video reference?

Hi Janice,

Thanks for the sample.
From what I tested on Windows and Mac, playing the video in the Oxygen Author visual editing mode works but takes a long time (1-2 minutes) before pressing the Play button and the video starting. I added an internal issue to see if there is anything we could do about this.
