Ipad / apple people.... my uncle brought an IPad for my grandmother to watch mass when she is recovering from surgery.  But can't get the video to work.  Can anyone tell me why?  Page is here: http://www.jezuici.org/transmisje/  Click on the little film-strip image with the word "Transmisje" under it.   It should ask for a user login and password, use 5835 for both.

On my PC desktop, when I did it, I was prompted to install a plugin from Brickcom, and afterwards, the image/video came thru fine.  But when I was helping my uncle with the ipad, we got no such prompt... only a blank screen.  My *guess* is that he has plugins turned off or something, but I'm not sure where/how to check that, or if that is even the actual problem.

(I also tried to do a search for Brickcom Plugins but can't find a page to just manually install it from).


thnx

alas, if its flash video, the ipad will not play it. :-(

unfortunately, the iPad works like the phones, on an "app" system. best way to watch Youtube is thru the YouTube app, etc. the browser doesnt behave normally.

although, you might try an alternative browser for iPad. Looks like Dolphin, Mercury (pro is $.99) and chrome for iPad are your best bets.

good luck with that!

In order to watch streaming video on an iPad, you need a browser that supports Flash. The reason there's a problem with using Flash on the iPad is that Steve Jobs NEVER wanted to support Flash on the iPad. See article here: http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/103459-apple-rejects-flash-ipad-iphone

Anyway, you need a special browser for the iPad that supports Flash. Look in the App store for a browser called "Puffin" and download it and then try to watch video to see if it works. There's a free week-long trial of Puffin so you can make sure it works before you pay for it. Puffin works fine on my iPad 2. There's other Flash-browsers for the iPad, but Puffin is the cheapest.
