Interactive Video on youtube not working properly on mobile devices
Submitted by meilensteindigital on Wed, 07/11/2018 - 14:38
could please anyone have a look at the video i created?
the video itself is coming from youtube, the interactions are made with the wordpress plugin.
though it's a bit jumpy (dont know why), it plays well on desktop browsers but not on mobile devices (just tested iOS with an iPhone7plus).
what am i doing wrong? any help is appreciated!!

Hi Thomas!Could you give us
Could you give us some more information, please? I cannot reproduce your problem. I checked your content on an emulated iPhone 7 plus with Safari on iOS 10.3 (iphone1.png) and a real iPhone 7 with Safari on iOS 10 (iphone2.png), and a real iPhone 6 with Safari on iOS 11. Seemed to work.

it looks ok on the first view
it looks ok on the first view, but when click on the white or light blue button, it does not behave like it should.
the machine should move to the right side and then show some more buttons.
you can see it when you view the video on a desktop browser.

at the moment i'm thinking about giving Vimeo a try, but obviously it takes a Pro Account for this.
second thing i thought about, was integrating the buttons into the video and create the clickable buttons with transparent pngs, but i dont know if these buttons are causing my problems.
does this make sense?

I am still not sure where the problem could be. On a real iPhone 7 with Safari on iOS10, it seems to lool like this: https://filebin.net/vjbmhlp3du20qll8 (don't worry about the flipped colors, that seems to be a problem with my quick and dirty video capturing).

Your switch to Vimeo narrows
Your switch to Vimeo narrows down the source of the issue, thanks! However, I still cannot reproduce your problem here (IPhone 7, iOS10): https://filebin.net/wcmovh36iians34h Did you experience the same behavior on other systems as well?
