96.0.177.128/video.html

Was able to get it to work in Firefox, Chrome,

Unable to get it to work on Ipad Iphone or Android

96.0.177.128/video.php using youtube Embed Code

Works in all browsers along with the Android but not Apple Ipad or Iphones

Looks like HTML5 is suppose to be the fix all for all devices but I am having a very hard time figuring this out can sombody please look at the source code and offer help please?

You should realize that not all browsers support HTML5 yet.

Not sure if this will help your issue, but I ran across this article (http://techie-buzz.com/featured/html5-video-tag-support-for-all-browsers.html).

You can try JW player which is HTML5 with Flash fallbacks for old browsers :)

Did you read the article I sent you?? I think it suggests a way to show video for browsers that dont support the <video> tag.

Do some research...lol The trouble with new technology and different platforms, despite html5 supposedly being a fix all mark-up language, is that thats not always the case.

<video> tags work on NEW browsers. Flash works on ALL browsers, but not iPhone or iPad. The article says the flowplayer works on the browsers that dont support html5. Another article I found suggests another option for android and apple.

You may have to do some testing and research and utilize more than one option to get total cross browser/platform support.

You might also want to ask a similar question in the graphics and multimedia forum (http://www.codingforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=32).
