    Yes, I do realize there is a Vimeo app, and yes my video does play fine in that app. But when I share this video with others, my iPhone friends complain it won't play and has a circle with a "/" threw it.

    Yet, awhile back I did notice other Vimeo video's were now playing in the normal iPhone Safari browser so I thought Vimeo was being natively supported. My video followed Vimeo protocol for uploading.

    Test for yourself:
    This is my video and it will not be supported on iPhone - http://vimeo.com/28386331
    This is a random other video that works fine in my iPhone (latest software) -http://vimeo.com/28386331
