@help any idea why the video loads in the iphone app but then doesnt appear in the post? Here’s a 58-second video of Greg and I coming back from our walk a few minutes ago (just as our housemate is leaving for his walk). Zoe had raced up to our door with Greg at the promise of a biscuit, but Vice Admiral ... eilloh.net

@hollie maybe the replies on this thread could help. Recently had a similar (I think) issue

@aeryn @hollie I might be wrong about this, but if I recall - the iPhone does not use MP4 format for videos by default (which the rest of the world does). Big platforms like YouTube know this and convert on the fly. See this: www.maketecheasier.com/iphone-us...

@aeryn @hollie now even if you turn it off, or it is MP4, there might be issues still. I convert the videos with a classic command-line tool called ffmpeg, but I'm sure there are simple apps out there that would do it.

@jtr thanks! Following what @manton said about the video tags fixed it for me. Assuming I was having the same issue at Hollie 🤷‍♀️
