Example 1

import { rehype } from 'rehype';
import rehypeVideo from 'rehype-video';

const mrkStr = `<p>https://github.com/004.mp4</p>`;
const htmlStr = rehype()
  .data('settings', { fragment: true })
  .use(rehypeVideo, { details: false })
  .processSync(mrkStr)
  .toString();

Output:

<video muted controls style="max-height:640px;" src="https://github.com/004.mp4"></video>

Example 2

import { rehype } from 'rehype';
import rehypeVideo from 'rehype-video';

const mrkStr = `<p><a href="https://github.com/004.mp4">https://github.com/004.mp4</a></p`;
const htmlStr = rehype()
  .data('settings', { fragment: true })
  .use(rehypeVideo, { details: false })
  .processSync(mrkStr)
  .toString();

Output:

<video muted controls style="max-height:640px;" src="https://github.com/004.mp4"></video>

Custom Title

Define custom title parameter(E.g: title=RehypeVideo) with hash route:

const string = `https://github.com/002.mp4?!#title=Custom%20Title`;
const htmlStr = unified()
  .use(remarkParse)
  .use(remark2rehype, { allowDangerousHtml: true })
  .use(rehypeVideo)
  .use(stringify)
  .processSync(string)
  .toString();
