    I just tried to view this video on an iPhone and iPad, and both said I needed Flash. This is with the shortcode, not the Flash player embed. I was assuming it would sniff the iDevice, then serve up HTML5 video, not Flash. Do I need to change something in the settings?

    Thanks for the reply. The shortcode is spitting out Flowplayer. Where can I choose jsvideo? I don't see the option to chose it anywhere. and I thought the whole point of the plugin was to chose Flowplayer for Flash (on old browsers) and jsvideo for iPhones, etc. But I could be wrong ;-)

    What version are you using mate? jsvideo is only available in the very last release. Flowplayer was the initial player and JSvideo support was only recently added to give people the alternative to what player they wanted their video to be displayed in.

    Flowplayer should use HTML5 rather than flash as well if its available.

    not to resurrect an older post, but how would one get the embed code to not automatically be flash but html5 instead for viewing on iOS devices, the way my work posts video doesnt allow for shortcodes.

    Sorry Ben I am not sure I understand the issue why you cannot use shortcodes in posts? Using object embed you will always get flash as you are just using embedding a flash object directly to the page if that makes any sense?

    The ability to get an object embed was originally just added to give people a quick way to post videos on pages outside of wordpress.
