These are all good attempts at a solution and I can offer http://eopas.org
as another. It takes elan or toolbox files in a particular format and
presents interlinear text plus media with citation down to the level of the
morpheme. Each file in eopas would need to be in an archive as well, but
the citation is to the text that should still resolve to an archival

PARADISEC has been exploring ways of presenting text and media directly
from objects in the repository. See an example at
http://catalog.paradisec.org.au/viewer/#/NT1/98007 and click on 'Show
interlinear text' (you need to be logged in to see this).
