ViewHelper Documentation

Renders HTML code to embed a HTML5 video player. NOTICE: This is all HTML5 and won't work on browsers like IE8 and below. Include some helper library like if you need to suport those. Source can be a single file, a CSV of files or an array of arrays with multiple sources for different video formats. In the latter case provide array keys 'src' and 'type'. Providing an array of sources (even for a single source) is preferred as you can set the correct mime type of the video which is otherwise guessed from the filename's extension.
