    Ravi, the whole value of "Place Video from URL" is that it permits use of CDNs such as YouTube and Vimeo.

    Like most InDesign users, I never suspected that this functionality still, in 2019, expected the video "to be compliant with Flash Player." On the contrary, most of us assumed that because YouTube et al have long since moved away from Flash, InDesign had naturally evolved to keep up. The Help documentation online has long said that "The video must be a valid H.264-encoded file," which is NOT Flash, and doesn't mention anything about needing Flash Player..

    Your marketing folks have loudly promoted creating interactive content and rich media documents with InDesign, so you should not be surprised that the disappearance of an important rich media capability is a complete shock.

    If you want examples and use cases, look through the many documents up on "Publish Online." Even the Adobe-created examples for Publish Online use video.

    I don't buy the idea that "it was no long possible to support this particular option,." That's an excuse, not an explanation. You do not need anyone to send you examples of video clips located on web servers. There are hundreds of millions of them online. That you even ask for them suggests that you and others are not paying attention to what your marketing division promotes and your customers rely on, far less to the current publishing scene in general.

    The bottom line is that the team has removed very important functionality and should be taking URGENT action to replace it and fix the big problem you have created for your customers.

    There are times when a paragraph style can't be "Based on..." the one that has the needed GREP style. It's relatively rare, but it does happen.

    Meanwhile, you could try using two frames on the master page, one for each variable.
    The current problem with all text variables is that what's actually inserted in the frame is a single hidden character that references the text in the document, not the text itself. Being a single character, it can't have two character styles applied to diferent parts, nested styles don't apply, and GREP styles don't see text, just that hidden character. That's also why text variables can only sit on a single line, and if that is too long for the frame it gets squished.
    I don't know what the engineering would have to be to change this behavior, but I'm guessing it's not trivial. For the moment, these problems are inherent in the basic architecture of the function. Hopefully, understanding the limitations might help with ideas for working around them.

    Working to scale in InDesign is no different than working to scale in Photoshop. I do highway billboards in InDesign (38'x14' and similar sizes), and the process is easier and faster than doing the same thing in Photoshop. Besides, the document size limitation is built into Acrobat/Distiller/PDF, so it would be of no value to make InDesign's document size larger.

    Don't work full scale on oversize grande format projects. You're wasting immense amounts of time for no added value.

    This is a critically important item in long document/book publishing. When a draft layout is sent for proofing, corrections can be referenced by page and line number to make the correction cycle quick and accurate. I have even done these changes live while on a call with the client on a hot deadline. The current workaround is to set up line numbers on their own layer on the master pages, but this is a multi-step process and awkward by comparison.
