Audio can be wrapped so user can play it inside IV

- I suppose you mean to use the <video> tag like in your template (https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/ap.org/template5/)?
This solution is bad, besause:
A) This neither recommended nor approved not by W3C or any other HTML5 manuals. It is not specified anywhere that video tag supports audio;
B) Instant View manual says that <video> tag supports ONLY <source> with type="video/mp4". This audio has a source tag with type="audio/mpeg".
Currently <audio> tag is not supported in IV format, so one thing we can do is leave link to original audio as fallback content. Selected audio will have this output:
<source src="https://...xdown.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"></source>
<a href="https://...xdown.mp3">dylan lovan coal mine</a>
<audio> tag is cutted by IV and only fallback content is shown.
When IV format will support audio, fallback content will automatically removed, as it removes from video/iframe tags (sure it will get support, because IV supports SoundCloud embeds)

- We do not recommend wrapping audio in <video> tags. Doing so will break the IV and it won't work on mobile.
As for <audio> tags, this isn't supported yet. However, it has been added to the "+ ..after" block so that we won't display pages with that tag until we support them.
So <audio> tags can be the way to go.
- Type of issue
- IV page is missing essential content
