Flash Player/HTML5

Any plans for implementing HTLM5?

People seem to be using Flash Player less and less these days and as some forum goers have mentioned preferring HTML5 over the rather insecure Adobe alternative i thought it would be a good idea to ask.

Thought about starting this thread a few times. Adobe doesn't handle 100 embedded youtube videos on a single page very well

Just a little 2016 bump.
I've often thought starting this thread. If it is a relatively simple plug in it would be nice since Youtube uses html5 almost exclusively these days anyway and that is the only video that can be embedded.

Flash is becoming increasingly marginalised and unnecessary, along with being an ongoing security concern. A lot of people either understandably choose not to use it or use a device where it is not an option to use it.

It would certainly make the listening too/videos thread more interesting :

I'm still 100% behind migrating to html5 for videos.

Also you can embed vimeo using vimeo tags.

Thanks for reflagging this guys. I have raised it with the dev team as it's not my area of expertise, but I'll let you know once I have an answer.

I've just noticed that this has now been implemented and how the forum is full of HTML5 video player goodness. Hurrah! Thanks guys.

While HTML5 does work, is it possible to give it priority over Flash? If Flash is installed (like in Google Chrome) the YouTube embeds are still rendered in Flash and not HTML5.

People are reporting that it the html5 player is not working at all in the videos of awesome thread, even with flash disabled. The videos are replaced with a half a Y asking to view on you-tube or they are being told to install flash.

I've tried it on Firefox in Ubuntu with no Flash installed and the HTML5 videos do work on that thread. However, Flash does have to be disabled.

Yes I've been using that configuration and it works. Chrome on Ubuntu doesn't work, it gives the Y thing that people are talking about on the video of awesome thread.

Problem is not in Youtube, but in the fact that the forum still uses object embeds, which were deprecated a year ago :
https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters
Quote:
YouTube <object> embeds were deprecated on January 27, 2015. Please migrate your applications to use <iframe> embeds, which can intelligently use whichever embedded player – HTML (<video>) or Flash (<object>) – the client supports.
So it should be as easy as replacing <object>tags with :
Code:
<iframe type="text/html" width="640" height="390"
  src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID?autoplay=1&origin=http://forums.bit-tech.net"
  frameborder="0"></iframe>
