    Does anyone have any experience with the PodPress player working on the iphone browser? It works on my android HTC EVO but I have a report from an iPhone user that the player doesn't appear in his browser.
    Thank you!

    Do iphones support flash yet?

    I haven't kept up on it.... but most of the media players are flash based, that may be the problem

    The MP3 players in podPress are Flash players and Rev.Voodoo is right. The iPhone and older Android phones have no Flash plugin. That is why the players are not visible.

    But if you touch on the download link, the download or the iPhone-own player starts to play the mp3 files.

    One of the next versions of podPress will use the HTML5 <audio> tag as player and the flash player only as fallback solution.

    Today, I added some further modifications to the current Development Version. That version will use for .mp3 files the HTML 5 <audio> tag (instead of the Flash players) in browsers with the Webkit engine (e.g. Safari, Chrome) of the version 525 and newer (see a comparison of the layout engines with regard of their support of the HTML 5 <audio> element).
    podPress displays the selected Flash player in all other browsers.

    So does that mean when the next update comes out we'll have an awesome HTML5 player for our visitors on iPhone/iPad/Safari?

    Yes. But the upcoming version will show the HTML5 player only for mp3 in Safari(incl. iPad/iPhone) and Chrome browsers and for OGG/OGV files in Firefox and Opera browsers.

    I plan to expand this to other mpeg media file types too, but in this upcoming version.
