 @grosbouff @rafa8626 The patch in
 [attachment:mediaElement.js.4.1.0-v4.diff] did not apply cleanly so I
 tried fixing it up as well as make some additional changes needed with the
 introduction of media widgets.

 Note that source files in WP should not be re-minified and submitted as
 part of patches, since the WP build process takes care of that. The
 minified files generated as part of a ME.js build are different and should
 be included.

 There is an error about `mejs.rendererName` not being defined in `wp-
 mediaelement.js`; this prevents all players from loading. Workaround in

 There is a 404 for `mejs-controls.svg`. Added in [https://github.com/xwp

 I am noticing a few issues with the patch, perhaps in part to my refresh
 of the patch. The YouTube and Vimeo players are not working very well or
 not at all. I've added some screenshots here: https://github.com/xwp

 Please review and amend a [https://github.com/xwp/wordpress-
 develop/pull/232 pull request] I opened as opposed to submitting patch
 files. That should make it easier to collaborate and review. You can
 either fork the repo and open a PR into the `trac-39686` branch, or I can
 add you as contributors to that repo to push directly.
