I am having a problem when I try to use the tinymce in the news admin for adding videos into news stories using v7.02.07 It appears to be a browser plugin issue. See images below:
No matter what I do it will not embed a youtube video or a video with a direct link to the .flv or .swf file.
If I select to embed an mp4 video it wants to use a plugin for quicktime and Chrome doesn't support pretty much any plugins so it is not view-able in Chrome and in fact if I try to add the video while using Chrome, the system removes the coding so the only thing that can be seen is whatever text was included with the news post. If I use IE or Firefox when making the news post, it will keep the coding and I can see the video when I go read the post in IE or Firefox but if I try to read the news post in Chrome I can see the news text but only shows a place marker for the video and tells me "This plugin is not supported" because it wants to use a Quicktime plugin to display the video.
I need to know if there is a way to make changes so that any video embedded into a news post will either use our sites own video player instead of relying on a plugin or make it so that it will at the very minimum use html5 to display the video. We have a video gallery addon that we use for adding videos that uses it's own video player and will play youtube videos or videos from a direct file source and use the addons video player to display the videos. There should be a way to make it so you can do the same thing when adding videos into news posts from the news admin.
The problem is not the use of tinymce although that could play a part in the problem. The problem is that the code for adding and displaying the news when you add videos into the news post it uses plugins. This is a problem because as I stated, Chrome does not support any plugins. The code needs to be edited so that when you post news, it is cross browser friendly and doesn't rely on the use of plugins.
