Summary description:  Multimedia inclusion for the dvisvgm backend

Announcement text:
 This package implements an interface for embedding video and audio
 files in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) output.
 SVG with embedded media is very portable, as it is supported by all
 modern Web browsers across a variety of operating systems and
 platforms, including portable devices.

 All DVI producing TeX engines can be used.
 The dvisvgm utility, which is part of all major TeX distributions,
 converts the intermediate DVI to SVG. By default, media files are
 embedded into the SVG output to make self-sufficient SVG files.

 For a usage example and instructions on how to interact with
 embedded media, look at
