Video problems

I’ve noticed a few people saying that they’re having trouble with playing videos especially on mobile devices.

I’m not sure why this is, but I think it might be to do with something YouTube have done with their video embeds. I will try and look into it to see if there’s anything I can do about it and write something again soon.

  1. All work and no Flash makes the iPad a dull boy when it comes to web browsing.

    Like it or not, Flash is still being used on 90% of streaming videos out there, and it will take some time before HTML5 replaces it (if ever). If Apple doesn't want to provide a Flash player, or makes efforts to block Adobe from making one, it doesn't mean the entire internet will change for them.

    People who bought an iPad should know that Flash is not going to work, and they should not expect to be able the experience the web entirely (unless they Jailbreak and install Frash), but the ads on TV don't really reflect that 😛

  2. For me the Feeddler rss app stopped showing all video. Since then I've tried a few other readers and found one where videos work – called MobileRSS. Not a bad reader but I still favour Feeddler, so I for one would be happier if it's possible to fix this.

    btw, in the web dev company I work at the word iframes is mostly followed by laughter.
