Subject: More from Radu about audio and video

Dear people,

Radu had a couple of comments about our use of video in the LwDITA plugin.
Hi Carlos,

Great, thanks for the tip. I updated the LwDITA DTDs which will come bundled with Oxygen 18.1 to be the latest ones.
Also we worked a bit and in Oxygen 18.1 if you are editing a LwDITA topic and using the "Insert Media" action, you will insert the proper <video> or <audio> constructs.
I also updated the media plugin to support Lightweight DITA video and audio elements:


A couple of observations about the current audio and video elements support in LwDITA:

1) You need to allow the width and height attributes to appear on <video> and <audio>.
2) Some videos (like YouTube videos) are referenced from HTML pages as embedded using <iframe>s and not <video>s.
So if you have a LwDITA <video> element and you convert it to HTML you need to know in the processor if you will output it to an HTML <video> or to an HTML <iframe>. Right now the media plugin XSLT stylesheets look if the referenced video is from YouTube and output an <iframe>.
So you might need some kind of type set on the LwDITA <video> element to state that you want it as an embeddable iframe resource or as a plain video.
