New Video Player in Blogs Area 4

Posted by Stuart McGarrity,

We have made some changes to how videos play in the Blogs area, including a new video player. There are one or two features that I’d like to make you aware of including:

  • The player works on devices that do not have Flash such as iPad, and most other mobile devices
  • The player can go full screen, which is useful for me as I will often be capturing a larger area of the screen in my videos than Doug did
  • The video auto-plays if you click on the thumbnails on the blog index page

Sorry guys. We forgot to configure the player to switch to HTML5 when Flash is not available. Hopefully this will be fixed on June 3rd. We plan to make the player default to HTML 5 first (and Flash second) within a year. We are not able to configure the player be HTML 5 only at the moment due to incomplete support in some browsers used on the site.

Update: As of yesterday, on desktop browsers with Flash not installed or disabled, an HTML5 player will now be used (as long as this is supported by the browser).
