I use Vimeo to host all the videos that I have on this site. Originally, Vimeo used only a Flash-comptible player that wouldn’t play on iDevices. Here’s an example of that player, which will appear on your computer, but not your iPad or iPhone.

Now, Vimeo has a new embed code that is HTML5 compatible and will play on my iPad. As you can see in the screenshot below, you can use the older code if you’d like, though I’m not sure why you would want to, since the new code is shorter and obviously more functional.

Here’s an example of the player produced via the new embed code. It will look identical to the first player on a computer, but will also appear on an iPad.
