Any ideas on what best practrice would be? Or is this a known issue with H5P and smartphone browsers? Ps advise. Thanks

Thank you for responding. Very much appreciated.

I really want my H5P videos to work on all mobile browsers.

I am publishing the video on wordpress. 

Here is a link to the "test" video.

I published the source video on YouTube as recommended because I couldn't get the Vimeo link to work in H5P editor.

The text link appears on desktop and mobile but the hyperlink doesn't work on my mobile browser.

I am using an Huaiwei P9 Light with Android operating system and chrome browser.

STOP PRESS: Just ran the same test with a LG G4 Chrome browser and in Firefox and the link worked. It must have something to do with the Huaiwei handset settings.

That's a relief.

Sorry - I should have checked that earlier and not made assumptions.

Thanks again for your support.

Hi ianabroad,

It's good to hear that you were able to isolate the issue. You might want to check some apps installed in the phone.
