    1 also works directly on blogspot in google chrome, but 5 is still just a black bar.

  117. For what it's worth:
    #5 is probably going to be your best option as it is "player agnostic" and the others rely on what version of flash a person has installed - has nothing to do with browser much at all.

    My suggestion is to use #5 OR upload your own flash player to maintain consistency. Otherwise, you use one of these external flash players and the URL changes or it goes the way of the dodo - all your links are broken.

    Uploading your own it is always there and you can update it (and not all your links!)

    ReplyDelete
  118. 1-2 work superb
    3-4 ok (sound is good, display kinda shity)
    5, 5? where is the fifth? (there's something but it seems i need to download a plugin).

    Firefox on XP, will check firefox on Ubuntu (Linux) at home and let you know.

    ReplyDelete
