@rob
a lot of people are still obsessed about seo; however, rest assured, this is something that changes constantly, what you learnt today, tomorrow is obsolete or even worse, never existed :P
as far as i been asking developers/companies, some big boys prefer to have their video clips on their servers, it is seen more "serious" for the company instead of host some of their resources on external/free hosting/services

No argument here RZ. I was just using the common figure of speech to say what we both believe. I cannot imagine all the time you and other extension developers have to spend to check that your scripts work cross browser/op systems, and all the time spent to write and test fixes when they don't. My hat is off to you.

I agree with you that it looks more professional to show videos from the site server. A good video format converter is an essential tool for posting all the required alternate formats for sure.

@protect
no discussion from my side as well, just a bit humorous side-note :)

Hi Guys - good input - a classic case of all the "differences" on the Internet - from code stds to mobile manufacturers and everything in between.

Rob - Yes I agree - I've often made those points to me Clients - I just wish Microsoft, Google, YouTube would make it less confusing when you set up and configure a channel - including the art work. The other problem is the out of date and simply wrong "bloatformation" (the information equivalent of bloatware :? ) out there on the Internet. When someone posts a blog - or one of them really annoying videos that includes superfluous content- why oh why do they not pull it down or correct it when it becomes out of date. :? :D

It looks like a lot has gone down here but i will still go ahead to add mine. :D

@ColinM, i would like to know the format of your video you embedded with html5 video player that gives you an awful results on your htc. I suggest you convert your video to an mp4 format in case it isn't. And i think there shouldn't be a problem with you playing the video on your htc as far as you mentioned using Chrome browser.

Convert your video to a supported html5 video player format and give it a shot again.

G'day dapson - yes, this thread engaged quite a bit of input - which is good :D

When I get a chance I'll try to replicate that horrible result and see what I can discover.

I agree there shouldn't be a problem with the HTC - I checked if there was any updates pending - and for once there wan't.
