Topic: iPad friendly YouTube embeds?

I've noticed on this particular site, YouTube embeds won't work on my iPad (I get a message saying flash is required.) However, on a bunch of other sites they work just fine. I'm just wondering if there's a way you guys can make them iPad-friendly.

Cheers! :3

Would that work with the iPhone too if they make it "Apple" friendly? If so, that would be great!
Congrats on getting an iPad btw pix.

I don't know much about iPad's compatibility with YouTube embeds, but if it helps, I know there's an HTML5 option for most videos.

I think Nlife might modify their embeds enough for them to technically not be a regular video. So In order for embeds to work I presume they would have to snatch their vids directly from youtube in their raw state.

Thats why I have an Android phone, thanks Google for bringing full on flash 10.1 to your phones!

I actually researched it a bit, and there's supposedly another embed code (using iframes) which enables HTML5 video playing if Flash isn't available. I'm guessing this is what people are using now.

plz say yes Ant! :3

Oh and thanks turtle! It's awesome btw.

We use a proprietary embed here for most videos, YouTube included, and I doubt that'll change; tbh this would likely be a lot of work on Ant's part for something that's not really a huge help to the majority of our readers. See what Ant says but don't expect them to change any time.

Of course, you can find all our videos at http:///www.youtube.com/nintendolife instead, if that helps
