Hi,

I have tried embedding local video in my code but for soem reason, i'm getting an error and the video isn't uploaded.
On my local stash, i had put the video in the _build directory. this way, the videos were being uploaded.
but for master stash, putting it in the _static directory doesnt do any good either.


pls help!

Hi,

i used 

 - .. raw:: html

           <video controls src="C_Add_Pricing.mp4" width="620" height="620">
           </video>   

When i put the video in the project/_static directory, it's not getting loaded in the browser.



All my content lies under shared directory.

The project structure is like this:

Project_Name
        _static
        _template
        en_us
        extensions
        external_links
        rst_template

and so forth.

All the project .rst files are under en_us folder.
on my local drive, the build directory is under en_us. When i put the videos under C:\Users\pmonga\Documents\Project_Name\en_us\_build\internal\siboz0XUowgP2K5GkgViQ8aVf8zlOnwF
it gets picked up and i can view the same on the browser too with the documentation.
But for the master code, if i put it under C:\Users\pmonga\Documents\Project_Name\_static it doesnt get picked up!
No error messages. I'm using a windows10 62 bit.

Hi,

The files under _static/ directory are copied into build/html/_static/
directory. So you need to use relative paths inside raw directive like
following::

.. raw:: html

<video controls src="../_static/C_Add_Pricing.mp4" width="620" height="620"/>
