Are you referring to playing video in the iOS app? We are working on an update of the iOS app that will play video in .mp4-format (H.264/AAC), that are part of an album. It will probably be released within a month.
Thanks for checking. The iPhone results are surprising. There's no coding in there to detect it and do anything different, and as far as I know, JW Player doesn't have any way of accommodating it. In short, I have no idea what's happening there.
The video is being shown in an iframe within a Highslide expander. Maybe the iPhone is simply breaking out of the iframe....
the Youtube video works fine, portrait or landscape (full sized) -> ok
the mp4 video works fine, portrait or landscape (full sized) -> ok, I can see a little jwplayer bottom right at the beginning
the swf video doesn't work, it says "install the latest version of flash" -> ok understandable
the two pictures "Everest & external site" open normally -> ok
on my pc, all the videos play fine
Now, I knew that .mp4 videos were playable on my Iphone 4 (like .mov)
Actually, I'm not able to generate .mp4 videos from .mts files that are playable within a Jalbum/Matrix skin album ... perhaps I'm using bad parameters as codec ... I'm using 4videosoft mts converter which have a lot of parameters.
Could you send me your mp4 "wildlife" video to see if I can insert it in my album under Matrix skin and play it within my album on Iphone to determine what am I doing wrong ? is it a trans coding mistake or album generation one ...
You can grab it directly from the demo site. Right-click on this link, and choose "Save link as..." (will vary, depending upon what browser you're using):
There's almost no album-generation error you could be making. You add the video to the album project, set the size of the frame (under Album > Settings > Matrix > Enlarged Images > Video & Pano, set the width and height to 800 and 450), and hit Make Album. There are no settings that effect the video itself - it's just plugged into the album, as is.
I've dowloaded your wildlide.mp4, insert it in my album, and am not able to play it on my Iphone
I've dowloaded my 00000FS.mp4 you modified , insert it in my album, and am not able to play it on my Iphone
but am able to play (on my Iphone) my modified video from (link removed) , this is the first time I can see my video on my Iphone .... but this is a direct link to the file, not an a Jalbum, right ? so I'm not sure that the modification you made is what let me play it on my iphone ...
so generating album with my set of parameters badly affect video playing ....
could you try to insert 00000FS.mp4 in a Jalbum/matrix and send me the link to see if I can still read it within a album ?
Your video, but with one small processing change. But I don't think that's the source of the problem....
I have another hunch, something I'd forgotten about. The jalbum.net server puts an improper file header on MP4 files when it serves them. The JW Player that's buried in Matrix used to choke on that, but the current version can finally handle that bad header. But maybe the iPhone's own player can't handle it. Let's see what happens with the same album, but served from jalbum.net, instead of from my own web host:
