Today we are happy to announce a new set of capabilities that we’ve all been eager to see. Starting right now, all those great videos you’ve created and will be embedding in your WordPress.com site will play back on mobile and touch devices including iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and the new Nokia phones.
VideoPress also now supports Apple’s AirPlay streaming technology to share video between supporting locally networked devices such as iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Apple TV. Videos with associated transcripts, such as WordPress TV, include WebVTT <track> data for display by supporting browsers.
But that’s not all. If you are running any of the new browsers such as Chrome 3.0+, Firefox 3.5+, Internet Explorer 9+, Safari 3.1+, or Opera 10.5+ – and have Flash disabled or not installed – VideoPress videos will automatically fallback to native HTML5 video support and playback without any issues.
Want to see this new capability in action? Here’s the original VideoPress debut video — give it a shot on your HTML5-friendly browser with plugins disabled or iOS device:
