Markus created the topic: Cross browser implementation
I have some videos on an external server that I want to display on my pages. Of course I want the videos to be visible in Firefox, Chrome and IE/Edge. Therfore I need the videos to be present in multiple formats: MP4 for Chrome/Safari, Webm for FF, and so on.
For FF/Safari/Chrome I have:
{mp4remote}{/mp4remote }
{webmremote}{/webmremote }
which would work, if the browser wouldn't try to render both videos. The webm is being rendere fine but it throws an error for the mp4.
Is there a cross-browser solution for this? Or how am I supposed to handle this? The documentation seems a bit 'thin' on this point.
Best Regards

Hello Markus,

Each snippet generates a separate instance of the player.
You can use a cross browser format like mp4/h264, embed a video from an online service or you can use a browser detection script (JS script) and depending on the user agent perform certain actions.
