    Here’s the link for the iOs forums http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/
    You may want to post here so the developers are aware of the issue > http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting
    This is just to be sure are you running the latest version of the app http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/08/09/wpios-3-1/

    I haven’t been using the app. The idea was the students would scan the qr codes and be able to watch the videos within the browser, which was the case until this evening

    Thanks for the iOs forum link, I’ll try there now.

    Actually, I don’t think it’s an iOs issue timethief, I’m wanting the videos to work on the website when accessed via safari/chrome etc on an ipad.

    I thought the videos were html5 and therefore would work. I’m confused to why it works on an iphone but not an ipad

    Thank you! I’ve put in so much work into the blog and would be absolutely gutted if it stops working.

    Thanks

    Which version of iOS are you running on your iPad?

    I’ve got three ipads here, one is running 5.1.1, another 6.0 and another 6.0.1

    And neither of the three iPads can play the videos?

    If so, would you please tell us the exact URL of the post or page where the video is?

    It’s the Thanksgiving long weekend and Staff will respond to you again as soon as they can.

    Sorry, I didn’t realise it was Thanksgiving. I was a bit anxious as I am a teacher and we have an inspection on Monday and Tuesday and my planned lessons were heavily dependent on students being able to access videos.

    I think I have figured it out, using the FAQ on the videopress site they mention a problem with not sharing the video reverting back to flash.

    I will double check that sharing the videos works then I will let you know if the problem has beeen resolved.

    Thanks again and have a good Thanksgiving
