    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

    You should realize that not all browsers support HTML5 yet.

    Not sure if this will help your issue, but I ran across this article.

    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.
