Why are video previews no longer available

We used to be able to add a video (.webm) to a story and click on it to play 

This no longer works - it loads with 'preview unavailable' and you have to download it to play it 


Is there a setting I can change so that it can be played without being downloaded?

Hi @Kerrie this looks to be a bug, my team are looking into this now.

Happens also in my jira :(

Hi @Juanma @Kerrie - this should now be fixed for new webm files.

We're looking into how we can fix the files that were affected during the short window where the bug looks to have affected you both.

@Owen Wallis has this issue been solved? I still have the issue after attaching an mp4 file to an issue. Used to work fine, but we have seen the issue the last couple of weeks.

We are using Jira Cloud.

A fix was applied for webm files. I'll check with the team to see if there are any issues with mp4.

UPDATE: I have investigated uploading both webm and mp4 on Jira and Confluence and both do have preview, however:
- Webm takes really long for the preview to kick in, about 1 min 9 seconds (00:03 to 01:12)
- Mp4 gets the preview instantly when uploading

Given this result, perhaps we can think of how to improve the preview enablement speed of webm.

I have same problem @Owen Wallis  when upload attachment (webm)  with rest api

Hi @naseriimahmoud could you let me know a little more about what you are doing? Which product you are uploading into, what you are trying to achieve?
