Bert, nice work. You said "caveats mentioned in the screencast" in your
email below; does this mean there is an audio track on the screencast?
I have not been able to get any audio in any of my players.
Does the code honour the copy status of a content item; for example,
when it comes from a building block which contains <can-copy
value="false" /> in its manifest?
