i would like to suggest some enhancements to the webm support

1) If you currently upload a webm you can only change the settings like autoplay on loop if you insert it and go again on edit

2) Webm can't currently be inserted for Galeries. I would like to suggest to handle it like image uploads for galeries.

Video galleries seems like a useful enough feature.

Hi @Deexgnome,

When this ticket was created, the Classic Editor shipped with WordPress. It's not clear to me what settings you want to see added for Webm files. Also, WordPress Core has never allowed videos within galleries, but does have a video playlist feature.

As of 5.0, the new, block editor is the default editor. This new editing experience sees a few changes to inserting Webm videos into a post:

  • Autoplay setting remains.
  • Loop setting remains.
  • Option to mute is added.
  • Option to hide playback controls is added.
  • The ability to add a poster image was added.

Videos are still not allowed in galleries by default when using the block editor, and playlists are not yet supported (see GB-805 for this discussion).

Moving forward, the Classic Editor will not be updated except for bug fixes. Any improvements to the new block editor should be reported upstream on the Gutenberg repository.
