Is it possible to include a video within a framer prototype? I have a psd generated element and I want to have a video play within it.

I tried using an imageView and got a mime type error (which is what I was expecting, it was worth a shot though LOL).

If it's possible can someone give me some guidance on what I'd need to do to make this happen?

You need to add an html5 video tag to theView.html. Something like this (untested):

var videoElement = document.createElement("video");

videoElement.src = "my-video.mp4";
videoElement.width = myLayer.width;
videoElement.height = myLayer.height;

myLayer._element.appendChild(videoElement);

videoElement.play();

Thanks Koen! I'll give it a try (likely Monday) and report the results!

The code for the video is working! Thanks so much Koen! One thing for anyone wanting to use this, the code Koen provided will make the movie start right away. If you want to delay do the following:

1. remove videoElement.play();
2. add videoElement.controls = true;

That will allow your user to start the video once they arrive at it.
