HTML5 audio and video object insertion

Post by PoaStell » 18 Oct 2014, 15:28

I have used quark since Q5 but am new to using it for web pages. I need to include a series of audio files and web files in Q9.5 web pages with controls. I can add them as code to the exported html but this is clumsy. What is the the sequence for adding audio or video objects to web layouts? I have failed to discover it. The HTML5 palette identifies the file but I can't see how to get it to put the objectcode into the quark web layout. Can anyone help with the sequence and anything I might need to know about its output?

You can't import the video directly into a Quark HMTL layout. The best thing I have found to do is to leave a box in the space where you want the video and use an HTML editor to add the video into the exported HTML file. I will sometimes put "video1" into the box in Quark, so that it's easier to find the location where I need to add the code in the HTML editor.
