    How come I can't see videos in posts?

    The title sums it up. When someone embeds a video in their post, I don't see a trace of it. No, picture, no link. Help, please!

    Sounds like you don't have flash player working.

    No, I'm on an iPad most of the time, but I usually get a URL or a notification that I need flash. Are all the videos on the forum in flash?

    I see some embedded vids/pics, but occasionally not others. Uncertain what the connection is, as I don't know the specific type or filename extension of the files being embedded. But so far as I can tell, it's not due to failing to have a common add-on, extension or scripting installed or enabled. Am using a normal PC/browser combination, here.

    Question: Does anyone know what vBulletin's specific reaction is to particular file types or filenames referring to a needed add-on or extension that isn't accessible? Does vB simply fail to show that anything embedded is even there, beyond simply not playing/showing it?

    Apple and their arrogance do not and will not support flash. They claim it is not needed and therefore will not run it. To confirm, go to Springfield Armory's website from an Ipad and try to enter the site. It will say that flash is not installed. Then try to install flash and it will error out. There is a free browser for the Ipad iin the App Store that supports flash called "Puffin". Install it and run it rather than Safari and you will now be able to access websites that run flash. Yes I work in IT.
