Video - Object Style
Today I cannot add an object style to a video. I'm using object style to easy redefine layout. If I create a content holder I can define its size and location with object style. Once I add a video into the content holder, the object styles in the object style pane are disabled/grey.

This does seem odd, why not figure this out so that Object Styles can be used everywhere?

I see no technical reason why object styles are not working with placed media assets.
1. Prepare a frame with an object style before placing a movie or a sound.
2. Place the movie or the sound to the prepared frame.
From now you cannot tell what object style is applied to the frame holding the movie or the sound.
All options in the Object Styles Panel are grayed-out if the frame is selected.
However, if you change the applied styles appearance the frame with the movie or sound will follow along. A very strange user experience.

Object style on videos, why not?
