Learn@UW - Media Objects Inserted into Document Using HTML Editor Don't Display within HTML Editor
Media objects inserted into a document using the 'Insert Stuff' ( ) icon in the HTML Editor don't display within the HTML editor.
You see a yellow box where the embedded media object should appear that contains an icon indicating which application should open the object (such as QuickTime).
However, the media object is displayed and can be played when you view the document within a course tool (outside of the HTML editor).
The media object also displays and can be played in the Preview window brought up when you select the "Preview" icon (resembling a page and a magnifying glass) on the bottom tool bar of the HTML editor.
