Embedded ogv files doesn't play in Phabricator on mobile
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Embedded ogv files doesn't play in Phabricator on my mobile. I am using Chrome 55.0.2883.91 on a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, with Android 6.0.1.

I noticed it on T158295.

Event Timeline

Chrome for Android doesn't support Ogg Theora video natively:

We could perhaps hook up some kind of plugin that swaps in the ogv.js player for Ogg and WebM files that aren't supported natively in the browser, if that's something folks would find useful.

I'm very reluctant towards making us maintain any custom downstream patches working around some browser on some platform.

Proposing to decline this task.
People are free to propose / report to upstream Phabricator developers. Or even better to Chrome on Android maintainers.

Workaround: should work to download the file and play it in VLC for Android. Awkward, but that's file formats for ya. :)

Declining. If this is something that needs to happen it needs to happen upstream, not worth keeping open here imo.
