Support » Fixing WordPress » [Plugin: VideoPress] Videos not working on iOS
6 years, 1 month ago
I have taken all the correct steps to imbed my video using VideoPress.
However, when I access the page on an iOS device, it says I need Flash to view the video.
Any work around on this?
Only videos embedded on wordpress.com blogs have the new non-flash fallback at the moment.
Because you’re self-hosted, your videos are still using flash-only.
But the WordPress.org plugin will be updated soon and then you’ll be good to go.
but the wordpress.com blogs only play flash-videos. After buying the PlugIn, there is only the old option to import the shortcut – but there is no html5-embedding.
Take a look at the demo-video of the VideoPress-Website – there is also only flash – no html5-embedding. Doesn’t play on an iPhone …
If a video isn’t “shareable” (in the video’s settings) then it will only play using Flash.
Holger/Hedrich31: The videopress.com demo videos play fine on an iPhone.
please take a look at the following example:
The video is shareable; but there is no html5-embedding.
Just tested your link on my iPhone and it worked.
thanks for testing the link. Seems to be a problem with my iPhone 3G (iPhone Software 4.2.1).
After clicking on the white triangle there is only the preview picture viewable.
sorry for posting another problem. The Html5-friendly Browser Safari 5.0.4 also shows the demo video form videopress.com only in Flash-Mode. There is no Html5-Embedding.
The video will play in Flash if it’s available. Disable Flash in Safari and then test.
