Sorry Vincent. Looks as though the link wrapped over several lines.
Here's a short link instead:

Léonie,

This is great news! Do you happen to have a link or two where we can see the player in use?

Not many in its current incarnation. We completely rewrote it before
we released it. You can see it in action on Novena's Humanising Technology
blog though:

Seems to work peachy in Safari 5.1.2 on Mac. Not as well in Firefox 9.01 on Mac. Can't tab to the player controls …

We ran into similar situations.

I know we have used flowplayer before. With some manipulation in the code,
this may be a good accessible option:

Thanks Rick and Heidi. We've updated the version on our blog to use
the latest version (available from Github). This should have sorted the
Firefox keyboard problem.

Same behavior in Firefox … no keyboard access. Does this have a full-screen option/button? How about caption on/off?

"

option/button? How about caption on/off?"

Strange. It tested ok on our staging server. Will take another look. Can
you give me any more specific information? Impossible to tab in/out of the
UI, or around the controls once in the UI, or both?

The player doesn't have a full screen option, but it does have a
captions on/off button.


Léonie.
