    I think I read somewhere that it can not play embedded video.

    So much for "full feature browser and internet communicator..." if it can't play embedded video at all...even the one on apple.com, how can they call it a full feature internet communication device? not to mention the lack of downloading/saving images/mp3....

    yeah, it is called iPhoney, you can turn all plugins off or on.

    being 1:20 in the morning, I dont feel like digging for it.
    but why would apple not make their site 100% compatible with the iPhone? :D
    :apple:

    The Emulator doesn't really do much more than have the proper screen pixels for people developing. But if you wanna see, just do a google search for iPhoney.

    yes i believe you, but how about QT on other sites such as cnn? i would like to know what website support embeded video playback on iphone.

    also, some part of website (even apple.com) simple finger motion might not be able to reach the finer part...such as the left-right sliding motion to select different model of apple products. it's a css/javascript trick, and require precise mouse click and drag the tiny lever right or left to move the product strip.

    how can you do that with the current iphone safari? can someone show me that?

    Me1000: How can I see quicktime in Safari (iphone)??

    Hi.
    Me1000: I read your post where you said:
    "It plays quicktime video's
    even in safari,"
    How does it do that? Does it have to be enabled and if so then how? I go to mentalfunk.com on my iphone and I'm not able to view quicktime videos there.
    Help, please.

    Quicktime videos in Safari do work, but it depends on how they are encoded. Streaming video is not supported, but embedded (pre-recorded) videos do work, if they are encoded right. If you want proof, go to video.google.com, and when looking at a video, select the ipod/PSP download option, and it will load in a quicktime "player" that looks much like the youtube player application.

    Great!

    That's great. Google videos work. When you say Youtube you mean in Safari then? Are there any news video sites that work? :)

    Not that I know of, but CNN does have a deal with YouTube, so U might find them their, if it will play is your guess. I just hope they fix this streaming video thing first, before or at the same time as the flash. People will never be happy with out there streams, hell in Japan they have Live Show on their mobiles, so we are way behind and this is not really asking all that much. Yet it is a hell of a phone, just hope they fix these issues soon.

    Whenever I follow a link to a youtube video, the device opens the youtube player but then fails giving me the message "Could not load movie" or "YouTube not available". All of the links within the Youtube widget work fine though.

    It seems that they have only made it compatible for clips pre-compressed in a certain format?

    So, essentially, there is no way to view regular youtube videos? Only those predesignated?

    as of right now the youtube app on the iphone plays h.264 converted youtube videos. Google says all youtube vids will be converted to h.264 by october ...so until then the answer is no.

    google video may help

    we build mobile sites - trying to get a video to play in a site we're doing for Tuborg (great Danish beer)

    it looks like we might have solved the problem

    i uploaded the video to google video
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8460308916745529448&hl=en
    then clicked "Download video - iPod/PSP"
    somewhere in the dialogue there's a chance to copy the link location.
    we've put that link in our site, clicking it plays the video
