Compatible video formats

Hi Peter,

The short answer is ‘no’. The longer version would be ‘nope’. 

There is some hope though. Tangentially, we have been working directly with the LC team on video mirroring. Trying to get his working, we also tried to find a common format that worked for both Mac and Win. We found that if you play videos through the browser widget, it should be possible to do this.

We just need a version of CEF with .mp4 support for Windows. The Mac is good to go. This is technically possible. Once we have that, we can get our video mirroring and everyone else will get a video format that works on both sides. It is a bit of a hack, but this is better than nothing. 

You can follow the bug/enhancement report here: <>

Best regards,
