Video files not being crawled

By Stefan @stevygee2020-03-04 14:18:09.703Z

I have created a page with a video block, resulting in an <video> tag linked to a .mp4 file. This video was uploaded through WordPress and shows up in the media library. The video file is missing in the wp2static output. The .mp4 file does not show up in the wp2static logs, in contrast to uploaded images which do get crawled. I already tried setting the Crawl Increment to 1, but this didn't help. What else can I try?

    fyi just tried using v7 alpha 002 and it seems to work with that version!

      @stevygee great, thanks for trying the Alpha build and glad it's helped with the videos!

      There's an issue to activate the Zip addon released alongside that, so the next alpha release will have the zip addon fixed, in case you were hoping to use that.
