DropKick Joe -
I had to log into the desktop version to post that.
Yeah for some reason it worked at the time on a few threads. I'm just wondering if the app change is here to stay.
The edit icons above the text box? They don't even seem to work.. The YouTube videos STILL don't work. Haven't for a long time for me (updated iPhone iOS).
I'm sure their main focus is on the site functionality but a simple response would be nice. I've posted both problems on every thread they make and nothing.
The problem here is that the conversion is done BEFORE someone views anything. It needs to be done when its delivered to you instead. I am not sure how well that kind of implementation would work with the site as is though.
The site needs to add an iphone/ipad check in their youtube oembed implementation and inject a different iframe for ios by stripping out all of the player parameters (like autoplay, gyroscope, encryptedmedia) because they dont play nice with pure HTML5.
Like a super simple and basic IF IPHONE give this iframe code, else give the code everyone has been using that does not work on iphone. Or just say fuck it and strip all the parameters for everyone but we will lose things like video controls on them.
