I have been trying to use <video> and <audio> tags but then while they play respective videos and audio as website, they won't play on Textastic local mode. It could be certain combination of tags but after hours of troubleshooting, I haven't been able to figure this out. Is there known facts about media?

Yes, there is a problem in how iOS handles the preview:// URL scheme that is used for local preview in Textastic. The iOS media player seems to only support file:// and http:// urls. As a workaround, you can upload the file to a server and use the remote preview feature.

Thank you for your quick response. I will try the workaround. I am truly loving this app, and wish you great success. Looking forward to many improvements to come.
