VisualEditor: Distinguish better between media types in the search interface and in the editing surface
Open, LowPublic

Description

Screenshot of embeded video

I think it would be better to distinguish better videos and pictures:
a) in media selection
b) in the text itself

a) if Id like to add video, I am not able to determine, which previous in media selections are videos and which not. Thus I must go to Wikimedia Commons anyway and add it like a unique filename.

b) attached screenshot shows, I add somethink and it still looks like an image - even its a video file.

Screenshot from Firefox 31, no problems

Which browser and version is that (such information is always welcome)? No problems here to get the "Play" button overlay with Firefox 31 on Linux, see screenshot.

Sigh. VE! Confirming. I should get more coffee.
Sorry for all the noise. Ignore my last two comments please.

Still, what's the usecase of knowing in VisualEditor if it's a video or image? That you don't want to add another video if there is already one?

But there is a small difference. Your screenshot is from "read" verstion, mine is from "edit".

Well, you want to know if you are adding video or image.

This is really two bugs, and should be split, but leaving for now…
