is there any plan to support HTML5 with jwplayer? I would like to support the ipad. Vimeo now supports it. I am still in development with the theme and dislike seeing just the shadow if flash isn’t installed. I was using grep to find all the places that swf is used: index.php, archive.php, blog.php, single.php am I missing any files?
html5 was introduced to version 5.3 of the standard JW Player see here:
and here is a browser test:
As Dan said the new player support HTML5, so if there is no flash it will resort to HTML5 ( I think ). That means you can call the jwplayer SWF without having to change all of the code for the theme.
See http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12/install-the-jw-player-for-flash-v5 – for a test on iPhone etc.
There is a guide within the documentation on how to use JW Player with DynamiX- unfortunately I can’t embed JW Player with the theme because it’s illegal.
Hope that helps
Thanks for the tip… I have the new version and followed the documentation on how to use the JW Player.

It doesn’t seem to work. Am i missing something?
I have 2.8 installed and I'm trying to figure out how to get the html5 video embed with JW Player to work. I've been checking out the documents from longtailvideo and can't figure out how to get the player to default to html5 not Flash. Has anyone had any luck with this yet?
