As I mentioned in the audio ticket (#39995), the widget would ideally handle both a locally hosted video file along with videos from major hosting platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and VideoPress. One this is split into a standalone widget, we should evaluate whether it makes sense to handle embedding from third-parties in v1 or wait for a v2.

There's been previous exploration into embedding from third-party video services in #38172.

Widgets: Introduce media widgets for images, audio, and video with extensible base for additional media widgets in the future.

The last time a new widget was introduced, Vuvuzelas were a thing, Angry Birds started taking over phones, and WordPress stopped shipping with Kubrick. Seven years and 17 releases without new widgets have been enough, time to spice up your sidebar!

In 40813:

Media: Remove core embedding support for WMV and WMA files since MediaElement.js has discontinued supporting them.

Plugins may continue to add embedding support for these file formats by re-adding them via the wp_video_extensions and wp_audio_extensions filters while also implementing fallback rendering routines via the wp_video_shortcode_override and wp_audio_shortcode_override filters.

See #39994, #39995.
Fixes #40819.

In 40892:

Media: Restrict appending loop parameter to Vimeo URLs specifically and not all external URLs in Video widget (via shortcode).

Fixes issue where Video widgets embedding external files fail to get recognized due to the presence of the loop param after the video filename, even though it has a recognized extension. Regardless, the loop param is only present to fix a Vimeo issue in ME.js 2.x.
