Video Lightbox

Popup video doesn't play on iPad, iPhone or Android phone

Sep 13, 2012

Q: I am testing with a free version of videolightbox on my website, but cannot get Youtube videos to play through videolightbox on iPhone/iPad. It works fine through my safari browser on computer and laptop, but just gives me a spinning wheel through lightbox on iPhone/iPad. What am I missing??

A: Maximal resolution of video that will work with iPhone and Android smartphones is 640x480px, with iPad is 1024x768px. Your video is 1280x720px.
It's not bug or restriction of VideoLightBox, it's hardware restriction of devices.
