Support rich text in Media Viewer
Open, LowPublic


Support rich text in Media Viewer's download and embed features, along with plain text and raw HTML.

A rich text option would invite me to copy and paste a simple phrase with embedded links such as this one:

Instead of only offering me this raw HTML:

"<a href="">17 Years of Sekar Jepun 2014-11-01 42</a>"
by <a href="//" title="User:Crisco 1492">Crisco 1492</a> - <span class="int-own-work">Own work</span>.
Licensed under <a href="" title="Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0">CC BY-SA 4.0</a> via <a href="//">Wikimedia Commons</a>.

At this point, many programs can accept the rich text option via copy/paste (most CMSs, like Wordpress, have rich text editors; *Office; all modern email clients; etc.).

Thanks to Luis Villa for this suggestion :)
