Vimeo videos will not play on Firefox mobile

Posted

I'm on a Virgin Mobile Kyocera Rise, 4.0.4, latest beta release of FF and no Vimeo videos will play. When embedded on a site like http://brehmlab.com, I'm told a plugin is needed and on Vimeo.com I'm told flat out that my device isn't supported. Other online videos work in FF and Vimeo videos work in my default browser and others. Sounds like a Vimeo issue though, right?

The system info says you dont have a flash player? Is this correct? If so ou need to see the How do I watch Flash videos with Firefox for Android? article.

Hopefully this helps.

Not sure about the Flash player thing - I've got plugins set to enabled in Firefox. I don't think that would be an issue though as Vimeo serves HTML5 video players and h.264 .mp4 videos to mobile browsers.

I still couldn't play embed Vimeo videos on Firefox mobile on some websites ((eg. http://greyscalegorilla.com/blog/ ), the sound works but I have a black screen.
