I have been working with WebM videos containing an alpha channel in an attempt to overlay the video in the foreground of a presentation. I am trying to accomplish this by using a foreground placeholder with an HTML Item containing a video element for the WebM video, while letting the other placeholders in the presentation run in the background. (The HTML Item seems to be the only gadget that would work with alpha currently, as the video gadgets display the transparency as a black background)
Within the Preview, everything looks good and functions like I would expect. When it comes time to schedule the presentation to run using the player, it always crashes during the "Launching the viewer" phase. As soon as I remove the video tags in the HTML Item, everything is good again.
The error listed in the installer-detail.log is:
viewer webContents crashed
And the installer-events.log lists:

2016/11/30 12:41:16 - launching viewer
2016/11/30 12:41:20 - viewer webContents destroyed
I know that video transparency is something that is still being standardized, but I was hoping that this method would work, and per the preview of my presentation, it feels like it may. That said, does anyone know if there are any known issues with this sort of thing?
Thanks in advance!
