Good for desktop, does not work well for mobile (2 posts)

    Combined with the FitVids for WordPress plugin, this playlist player has a very nice look and is fairly easy to configure. But this is only for desktop viewing, for mobile it does not work.

    I have written an extensive report about the testing that I did with this plugin in the support area, so I will not belabor the facts here. I will just say that the claim in the description that support for mobile devices has been added is not accurate. What they have done is to use scripted code that diverts to a special YouTube playlist when the player is clicked; and on the vast majority of mobile devices, that playlist will not play.

    Hi cscottb,

    Thank you very much for your post, its very helpfull for us to improve this plugin.

    We just see that question that you tell us. It happen if you open video with browser not with youtube app. (for example, or other kind of app to open video in your mobile)

    When we prove it, in our mobiles, when you reproduce a video, two options are showed, open with browser or open with youtube app. We select youtube app as predefined and works well.

    Now we have proved open videos with browser, and we can see that they are opened in youtube page for mobiles.

    We have proved with Opera Mobile Emulator and we can see that this software haven't option to open video with youtube app (or other)and for that, you always see youtube lists.

    In conclusion, you can see videos with this plugin in your mobile using apps to open them (we think that it is the best way but we can be wrong).
    We are now working to fix browser option.

    Thank you very much for your question. If you have more questions, you can write to sales@webpsilon.com (faster) or here.

    Thanks again!!
