I can embed a little (converted to) flash video in my page without a problem.
Of course it won't play on the iPhone (& I assume iPad). I want to reach this audience!
I could go the Quicktime route & convert it to .mov (with variations for the iPhone) embedding the Quicktime player, avoiding Flash altogether - but I don't really want to!!
Clearly display on Apple is a problem for everybody!
Perhaps detect the iPhone (etc) and display Quicktime to them & something else to the rest, but how!
What do you do please?
Convert the document type to HTML5 (if you are using CS5/5.5) and use the HTML5 video tag:
<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
Your browser does not support the video tag.
You will need to encode the video as MPEG-4 which will work in Safari, Chrome and IE9 web browsers as well. There are 2 other formats, OGG and WebM which will allow it to work in Firefox and Opera, but you are more likely to come across encoders for MPEG-4 as opposed to OGG & WebM (if anyone recommends any good Mac converters for those formats I'd be interested in hearing about it).
See Pickle Player
It uses HTML5 <video> and MP4 source files for all browsers and devices that support it with a Flash Player fallback for the only browser that doesn't (Mozilla). The beauty of this method is that you don't need encode multiple file types to support the various web devices/browsers.
