#23876 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Embedding mp3 breaks TinyMCE

Reported by: ericlewis's profile ericlewis Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.4
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: Cc:


Add a simple mp3 embed tag to a page in the Text (HTML) mode. Switch to the Visual mode, and you won't be able to get back to the Text mode.

<embed src="example.mp3" width="640" height="480">

The resulting JS error blames the TinyMCE:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '0' of undefined in editor_plugin_src.js:480

This seems like a major problem especially given new stuff in 3.6.

23876.diff works, but I get this when switching to Text mode:

<object width="640" height="480" classid="clsid:undefined"><param name="src" value="example.mp3" /><embed width="640" height="480" src="example.mp3" /></object>

23876.2.diff removes classid="clsid:undefined".

Looked at that too, it's more complex than just fixing the error. The MCE media plugin shouldn't wrap a simple <embed> tag in an <object>.

Looks like it gets the internal 'type' wrong (as it looks at the mp3 extension) and assumes it's an <audio> tag rather than <embed>. 23876-3.patch fixes that (and doesn't require the other fixes) but needs more testing.
