Since the last update to mediaelement was applied in [49070], several new versions have been released.

The latest versions (5.x+) have potentially breaking changes that will need to be tested in more detail, and potentially be accompanied with more communication to plugin and theme developers.

In the short term, the 4.2.17 bug fix release should be merged into Core.

Thanks for the patch @cdbessig!

Could you share a bit about how you created it? There seem to be a few issues:

  • It looks like the lang/* and renderers/* files are marked for deletion, but these are not included in WordPress (with the exception of the Vimeo renderer).
  • It looks like mediaelement.js was updated to 4.2.16, but then the patch is downgrading it back to 4.2.16 (the current version in WP).

Would you be able to refresh the patch so this can be included in WP 6.1?

In 54354:

External Libraries: Update MediaElement.js to version 4.2.17.

This is a minor bug fix release and the latest in the 4.x branch.

A full list of changes can be found on the library’s GitHub:

While this is not the latest version (the 5.x branch is), further testing needs to be done to confirm compatibility in WordPress. #56320 has been opened to explore this.

Props cdbessig, desrosj.
Fixes #56319.
