Mobile Video for iPhone & Android
I'm in the process of creating a mobile website where people can access our video podcasts. Our main site uses JW Player and the .m4v format. I have the player set to default to HTML5 for modern browsers and it works well.
As I started creating a mobile page, I embedded the same exact JW Player as I had on other pages and tested on my iPhone. My iPhone loves the page, opens the video easily and plays back fine.
Next, I grabbed a friend's phone running Android and it said it didn't support the .m4v format. So I did a quick web search and saw the solution appeared to be to switch the .m4v to .mp4. Easy enough. I tried it with one video. iPhone still had no problems, but Android shows the player with the teaser image and when you press play still says the video isn't supported.
Am I missing something? What video type should I try to use for Android? I'd prefer one type and not two as it makes life a bit simpler.
