[Pro] Video on Mobile fail to play

I wanted a fast method of adding video to a site with fallback for mobile devices to I ran for the FLV Player as a quick solution.

It turns out that when viewing the site on a mobile device there’s a diagonal line through the movie button and it won’t play.

Anyone come across this issue before?

FLV = Flash video = not gonna happen on mobile OS.

We both know that!.

The Freeway FLV action provides fallback for iPad iPhone. I think something in the format/codec is breaking it somewhere on the conversion but can’t spot where.

I’ve ended up hand coding the HTML5 tag in a responsive page for now…

<video width="100%" autoplay controls poster="movie/poster-frame.jpeg">
 <source src="movie/my-movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
 <source src="movie/my-movie.ogv" type="video/ogg">
 Your browser does not support the video tag. Please upgrade to a modern browser.
 </video>

Looking at the site stats I’ll upset just under 6% of the visitors.
