Two qualifications: I haven't followed this thread closely, and I haven't
played a great deal with the HTML5 build.  That said, does an HTML5
standalone have the ability to interact with the HTML of the surrounding

If yes, it would seem to be relatively straightforward to do what most
HTML apps do, which is displaying video content in an iFrame, or embedded
video on the same page.  Perhaps this is even how player support will
eventually by provided by the LiveCode guys.  But if you need a solution
now, maybe this route is an option.
