Why can't I see VIMEO???
#1
So I bought a new MAC last week, everything is almost set up to where I like it but I now realize I can no longer see any of the Vimeo posted videos on the Forum! I can see anything from Youtube just fine. But no Vimeo!!!

This is of great concern to me, as I use Vimeo exclusively to post clips, trailers, etc.

I am assuming this is an issue with my new Mac and not a site issue (though I will post in the Bug Reports too, just to be safe), so if anyone can tell how to correct this, I would extremely grateful.

It's gotta be a browser issue. Are you using Safari or something else?

I am using Safari, just as I did before on my old Mac. Never had an issue then.... "sigh"....

yeah, I definitely now think it has something to do with Safari.

If I use Chrome, the Vimeo vids now appear.

Trying doing some research on the Vimeo boards, got very conflicting suggestions... lol

I think I will try to update my Flashplayer....?

Problem resolved. Installed the newest version of Adobe Flashplayer and all is good again.

Nice one bob. Slightly on topic, I still have the issue of not seeing Vimeo embeds on mobile devices. Again, YouTube is fine, but Vimeo vids are invisible when on da phone. Is this everyone's situation or just mine?

What type of mobile devices? During my "research", there seems to be lots of issues with any and all Apple products.

I have this issue on all browsers I've tried on my Android (Motorola Droid Razr). Stock browser, chrome, firefox, dolphin, and some others whose names elude me at the moment. And the Vimeo native app is just s#!t, and doesn't work well at all going from browser to app, and the search is terrible.

Yeah, basically I'm complaining because I feel your pain. If anyone has a vimeo/android solution that'd be very helpful!

[MENTION=8922]njvc[/MENTION] vimeo doesn't do mobile very well. I had to resort to their native app which wasn't all that indeed. What device do you have?
