I noticed yesterday that subtitles for Vimeo videos didn't show up.I created subtitles for YouTube and Daily Motion, too, and they worked fine.
The Vimeo videos are:
>Can you tell me if the subtitles now work for you with IE10 in http://www.amara.org/en/videos/sKEhJLsmKaR2/info/?
Yes, I think the subtitles work. I say "I think" because the first time it returned "error". But after that, subtitles showed repeatedly four times.
Attached is the screen shot of "the first time".
Thanks for everything.
>Out of curiosity:
The first link (Richard Stallman...) appears like 1.ping. The second link(http://download...) like 2.ping.
Well, as for IE9, no subtitles on Amara works. Windows Vista doesn't support IE10. As a result, those who can see subtitles on Amara are limited to those who have windows 7 or windows 8, if not installed another browza. I once checked windows Vista with Google Chrome, and Chrome could show subtitles.
I've found this: WebM Video for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9+
>Have you installed the plugin?
Well, I installed it (it took only seconds) and experimented. It works fine.
WebM vs H.264
I didn't know anything about this. Apple and MS will never intend to support WebM.
Thank you for having tried - successfully - the Webm plugin for IE10, and for the link to the AppleInsider article on codecs. Not that I really understood it, being codec-illiterate. What I did grab from it is that the present development of codecs is complex, and that this complexity may cause a browser compatibility issue: hence the addition of "+browser compatibility issue" to the title of this topic.
I guess that until browser developers get to a real agreement on that, when a video stops working in Amara the solution will be to reupload it in a generally supported format like MP4, and add the new URL to the Amara page and make it primary. But this, of course, opens the copyright can of worms...
