What would you say if someone were to tell you that “you are only experiencing 60% of what life has to offer”? Is there an app on your iPhone ready to justify your reaction? If so, you are one of the fifty million plus iPhone owners who are not able to fully experience the web.
That’s correct. Any website containing Flash objects, or built using Flash is not able to be viewed on the current line of iDevices. Hence the fact that we iPhone owners (yes, we’re BIG fans ourselves) are missing out on a great deal of what the web has to offer.
Fact: Most audio/video players on the web use Flash to stream content to their audience; AudioAcrobat players included.
While this might stop some companies dead in their tracks, we are pleased to confirm that there has been an easy-to-implement workaround available since the iPhone was merely a twinkle in Steve Jobs’ eye.
In today’s posting, we will show our readers how to publish AudioAcrobat videos to the web in a format that can be easily streamed on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch via QuickTime; as routed through the mobile Safari browser, which is native to each and every iProduct that browses the web.
The Good, The Bad and The Resourceful
Friedrich Engels once said, “An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.” Luckily for our readers, an ounce of action is literally all it takes to apply this theory, and it all begins by logging into your AudioAcrobat account.
1. Login to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Click the blue “Video” tab
3. Click the title of the Video you wish to publish
4. Click “Publish Video”
5. Click “Publish for Website”
Login to your AudioAcrobat account
Click “Publish Video”
Click “Publish for Website”
Depending on whether or not you’ve already specified the “Saved Settings” for your Video players, you will see “Publish for Website” or both “Publish for Website” and “Use Saved Settings”. If you are familiar with your “Saved Settings” and wish to use them in this case, feel free to go ahead and select, “Use Saved Settings“. If not, simply click, “Publish for Website.”
Once your selection has been made, you will be on a page labeled, “Generate HTML Code“. Here you will see the “Additional Features” section, which allows our readers to enable the “Video Download Link“, as pictured below.
Make this selection and click “Preview” to see the additional link in real-time. When ready, click “Generate HTML Code“.
Here, our readers will be able to highlight and copy the HTML Code for their custom player. This code can be pasted anywhere HTML code (containing iFrames) is accepted, including Websites, Landing Pages, Blog Posts, HTML Newsletters, AudioNotes & more!
The best part — anyone viewing the page containing an AudioAcrobat video on their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch will be able to click “Download File” to stream the video through QuickTime!
