    If I add a video block and set the video URL to a locally-hosted file, say
    [video src="https://MYDOMAIN/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/myvideo.m4v" /]
    then the generated page contains a div with the following text:
    [video src="https://MYDOMAIN/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/myvideo.m4v" /]

    so somehow the video block is simply remaining a shortcode. Other blocks work fine.


    Hi eliotsmyrl!

    Thank you for the inquiry.

    Have you tried using a code block element? When using a text block or when editing the content using the default text editor, make sure that you’re on the text editor’s Text mode instead of HTML before adding the shortcode.



    Yes, a code block element (using exactly the same shortcode) works – it does generate a video. But it’s not sufficient; it doesn’t have the options for auto-play etc that the video block has, and this needs to work for non-technical clients who will be making page edits. I don’t want to have to tell them to use code blocks and shortcodes.



    That seems to be related to m4v file format. I downloaded your video and uploaded on my local installation as .mp4 file and it worked as expected.

    Could you convert the your video to mp4, ogv or webm?

    Best regards,
