In typo3/sysext/cms/flexform_media.xml the checkbox to use "HTML5/accessible rendering" is only shown if the Media-type is video. It is hidden for audio through a displayCond in flexform.

But that checkbox is needed for HTML5-audio as well. Unfortunately that displayCond can not just be removed since another tab is also triggered by this checkbox:


And displayCond does not allow to have two conditions / one condition of two parts (type=video and mmUseHTML5) here.

Workaround is to use use type=video, check the checkbox and after that change to type=audio. That value is then still present in flexform.

Tested this on latest 4.7.2-dev from git.

PS: CCing Steffen Ritter on this since that condition was introduced by his changeset.

I close this because the mediace extension will soon be removed from core, without backporting.

If EXT:mediace would become non-core, I expect it will get a separate forge-project then and people responsible for it? If so, shouldn't the issue be moved over to there instead, since it's still valid?
