I am following your instructions on adding an external link to show self-hosted HTML5 and inserting a "preview" image onto the external link, however it is not working consistently. With some files the video will show up and with others I just get a link to the video. I've got all the copies of the different file formats (.mp4, .ogv .web4 and .jpg) stored in the same folder. And I'm at a loss as to why it's working sometimes. I wonder if WP itself is preventing the files from showing up? Do I need to create a totally different folder outside of wp-content/uploads? The codex does not indicate it supports HTML5 and I noticed that there's a link to the codex stating what files WP supports. I'm creating this site on a localhost so it's not online yet. Maybe that's the issue? I don't know. I'm at an apprentice level with WP, but have created HTML sites in the past.
Another bug is that with the videos that I can view on the frontpage play inline (in the thumbnail view on the frontpage) instead of opening into a lightbox or the post. Basically none of the settings you can choose from work. The other problem is that one needs to click twice to view the video. While I'm not crazy about these bugs, I could live with it if I felt confident that the HTML5 Videos would function as your documentation states.
Are you going to do anything to support this feature in Angular? Self-hosted HTML5 video was a key reason why I purchased your theme and I've invested way too much time into creating my website to switch to another theme at this point. From what I've been reading up here it sounds as if there's more issues down the road on iOS devices. I love this theme and truly appreciate all that is involved in creating it and maintaining it. Does Kriesi see a fix for this or not? If so a time frame? Looking forward to a response. Thanks for a great theme. Hope we can get the HTML5 videos working.
