Hookmark links to embed images & videos

I often am ok with storing things in the /assets folder, but sometimes I want them to live in other areas of the file system. I use Hookmark to make links to files, but I’d love to embed images and videos as well.

I tried:
video.mp4{:height 48, :width 399}

No luck

I have the local assets plugin but that forces you to use file://, which is not hook://. I want to use a hook because these links are durable and don’t break if the file moves.

Is there a way to make this work?

Currently Logseq and Hookmark don’t play nicely together. We’re aware of the issue, but don’t have the bandwidth to work on a fix at the moment.

There are two feature requests for this already, so we’ll pick it up at some point:

How long will it take to bring the two together? I really need this feature, I love logseq, but because it doesn’t have this feature, I’m forced to stay in obsidian, really waiting for a long time, hoping to launch soon

There’s no ETA for this. Focus by the Logseq team is currently on rebuilding Logseq core so it becomes more performant and easier to maintain. Updates about Hookmark compatibility will be posted to the mentioned feature requests, once this is picked up.

In the meanwhile, we want to support anyone from the community who sees this and wants to take a jab at making Logseq and Hookmark compatible. After all, we’re an open source project. If you need more details (or would need funding), please DM me.
