Maybe Nextcloud should get its own Nextcloud-browser-plugin to enhance the video support?
so if no plugin is installed, only browser supported files can be played and with plugin installed, videos will be played through this plugin.
I am not a programmer, its just an idea
There are already some video-plugins for browsers, we could perhaps try to make it easier to work with.
Anybody we could ask for that or a place to raise an issue @jospoortvliet
So we’d need a client side plugin, as in, a plugin for Chrome, one for Firefox etc? It is an idea, though there are probably legal problems - the codecs are patented and all that so unless we make it a proprietary, paid plugin, I don’t think this is legal
