Good news folks. I've just installed a new plug-in which makes our videos HTML5 compliant. You'll now be able to see videos without the use of Flash on mobile devices. From now on if you ever want to embed a video all you need to do is paste the url of the video right into your posts...no need to use the embed codes. You can still use the centering bracket code to center the video if you want. I've gone through the last 2 years of posts and swapped out the old videos for the html5 versions. (yes, it was a lot of work). If you've posted a video in the past and find it hasn't been updated to run in html5 (in other words it doesn't show up on your mobile phone or tablet without Flash) feel free to replace it with the url of the video (usually the youtube url in the browser url bar up top). This new embed tool also recognized dozens of different video sites like Facebook videos and others.
Most importantly if you enjoy browing old posts and articles that had videos you'll now be able to view them on your mobile devices instead of having the dreaded (plug-in needed) message.
