    Hi Long Tail Video,
    I like your plugin.
    I think I find a bug inside JWShortcode.php
    We added JW Player or WordPress plugin shortcode with a mp4 video in it, the video plays on Macbooks and PCs, but it shows blank on iPad or iPod or iPhone.
    Although HTML5 as default mode, it doesn’t work.

    Can you take a look function generate_embed_code($atts) ?
    I have modified code for that function so it can plays <video> on iPad or iPod or iPhone
    I write the modified code on a blog post, http://pixert.com/blog/mp4-video-cannot-play-on-ipad-ipod-iphone-using-jw-player-shortocode/

    I experienced same problem with JW Player for WordPress version 1.5.8

    Hi Kate,

    Glad you like the plugin.

    The code relating to the video tag is actually legacy code, that still exists in the plugin to support users who are still using an older version of the JW Player.

    New versions of the JW Player handle HTML5 support automatically and don't require any additional processing to be done by the WordPress plugin. That's why the if condition checks the version and the presence of the JW embedder.

    If you have a test page where this code isn't working, I'd be happy to take a look.
