I’ve been wanting to play videos on my Omeka-S Site using Universalviewer, and I came across this module by Daniel KM which I am using for displaying images on the site. That, it does well.
On the flipside, videos don’t play. At all. The viewer doesn’t even render when I try to display videos with it.
The Omeka Module lists a composer dependency to this repository, which is a fork of the original UniversalViewer; when I clone that, compile it with grunt, and extract the resulting zip to the same directory as the composer dependency (replacing it), videos start playing.
What confuses me is how and why that recompilation fixes my problem. Is anyone able to make sense of this?
