We play a lot of vids on diablog. And thanks to the content mafia and proprietary software companies it is quite troublesome.
Apple users cannot watch Flash files. Real Time Player and Windows Media Player do not comply with standards, and not all browsers are yet capable of playing HTML5 videos. That leaves us between a rock and a hard place. Just ask Glynsky, he is struggling with the issue constantly.
Until everyone has a browser, that supports and plays HTML5 vids, we try .mp4 files. At least Casper, Iren and Smiles can watch those without problems.
Now, for Glynsky and all others struggling, there is a wonderful website to convert files:
There you can convert pretty much any file into other formats. Whether it is an audio file, a video, an image, a document, ebooks, pretty much anything. I converted a flash vid into an .mp4 and it worked perfectly. So, next time someone cannot open a file of yours, send them there and have them convert it to what ever they can open.
And if I am totally bored at one point in my life, I might convert the ~400+ flash files on diablog for those Apple fan boys and fan girls. But don’t hold your breath.
