I wanted to bump this one, as we are moving down the road with Field 59 and other video elements. It seems like we would need an easier way to display videos as a lede item in the story. Currently the only option for doing that is to drag the video inline and then drag every other photo attached to the story inline somewhere. That could be really tedious, especially on wire stories that constantly are updated by the AP. (For example, if you wanted a hurricane video channel to stay atop the hurricane stories.It seems like a couple of options. 1. Have the top video, youtube (or html asset with the #video tag) default as the top item on a story. related photos would then be placed inline as a gallery or at the bottom of the story as a gallery. (where videos currently go if they aren't dragged in line). 2. On some channels enable an top-of-story utility position that could host a smart video player or video playlist like sendtonews or NDN ... when using that position, photos would default to the same spot as on No. 1. ... Instead of having a bunch of game photos from an NFL game, i would match rather see game highlights at the top. Better user experience and more $$$.I didn't put in a ticket request because i want to see how others would use this.
Thanks Christine! Many thumbs-up for this one.
