Video playback with mobile

Tried playing a few video's today with my I-pad and got a message over the video saying I needed an HTML 5 capable browser. Now I'm not absolutely sure but this seems like a bug of some kind as its always had no trouble with playback before today, other sites video's play, and I'm fairly certain its version of safari is html 5 capable. My PC seems to run things fine but seems like something worth noting.

Yeah, just noticed the same. Tried with Safari and chrome, both coming up with the same error...

This is very frustrating. I have found that it only happens with newer videos. Some of the older videos work fine.

I'm experiencing the exact same problem. Updated on Sunday to ios 7.0.6, and I can't view any videos, instead, I get the message, 'please use a html5 capable browser to watch videos'. I contacted apple support, they suggested to contact the site where the problem occurs. I downloaded chrome after that, only to have the exact same problem. And the help, submit a question page of this site, won't submit my question. Getting a tad frustrated, after spending the last hour and a half finding a fix for this problem.

I'm getting the same problem on my Android phone. It just started over the last couple of days. GS seems to have more technical issues than any other site I visit on the internet.

Seem to have gotten it to work if I view website in "widescreen", do this before viewing the page with the video. You'll know its working if you see the play button above res settings
