Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-238) Unable to Play Youtube or Vimeo Videos in Android App
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 15:52:59 GMT


Simon MacDonald commented on CB-238:

If you are using the html5 video tag I've talked about the issue many times on this list.
I even built a work around while we wait for Google to fix.

Star these issues:

Grab my work around:

I'm going to close this issue for now as it is an Android problem we can't do much about.

> I am trying to play a video in my app using the Youtube or Vimeo iframe embed code. The
video thumbnail appears and I can click play, but the video never actually plays in the simulator.
The exact same code works in the Android browser, but as soon as I embed the code into phonegap,
the videos do not play.
> I have done a bunch of searching around the web and it seems like this is a common problem.
Do I have to enable anything special to make this work. It also works great in iOS...
