EditLive! 9 Documentation : Embedding Media Using HTML5

The Insert Media dialog supports embedding media via the HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags.  This is achieved through the Video and Audio tabs on the dialog respectively.

Media content that's inserted into EditLive! must be first uploaded to a web server.  Files local to the user's machine cannot be used as either video or audio assets in the content.

For each tag, the dialog supports the use of multiple source files of different formats and HTML to provide subtitles or fallback support in the case of browsers that do not support HTML5 media.
