Vimeo vids in forum posts

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:08 am

Finally, I've added a button to insert videos into forum posts.

Is it possible to make the YouTube videos a little larger?

Looks like vimeo vids aren't droid compatible. Bummer. Glad you did this though, I prefer the quality of Vimeo.

They work on my Android v2.3.3, Motorola Droid-X phone.

I'm on a Kindle Fire HD. Tried again and I just get that annoying puzzle piece icon.

Might be a Kindle thing. Do the YouTube vids work on it?

Isnt this due to flash not being supported on Kindle and the latest Android versions? Droid X and even Razr Maxx has flash support but not Jelly Bean based tablets/phones. You'll have to jump a few hoops to install Flash.

I can view youtube videos fine, but it probably is related to the custom droid OS that Kindle uses.

The YouTube and Vimeo forum embeds will continue to use Flash because I don't want to flip the switch on HTML5, yet. So, some devices are going to have problems, but the same would be true if I switched to HTML5.

Anything that breaks the internet for legacy IE users is a good thing.

:lol:
Unfortunately, IE is still the most widely-used browser. On 14ers.com, ~45% of all users still use some version of IE: 0.5% IE6, 8% IE7, 18% IE8, 15% IE9 and 4% IE10.
