Each platform supports different video/audio formats and codecs. This means that some videos/audios can be played with the standard player, others require a plugin, others do not work at all. To deal with this, the resolve action can be used, which has been developed to return a suitable format/codec depending on the current platform/player. This feature is available since version 0.1.107.

Note: The resolve action can also be used for images (that are loaded on the fly). Additionally, it can be used to generate temporary links or links with access tokens at runtime.

Please see following example.

Example[edit]

This example uses a web service and an interaction plugin to resolve the assets. For the interaction plugin, please have a look at this implementation script: https://msx.benzac.de/interaction/js/resolve.js.
