Video Playback in Safari

juiceboys Meta 4 Comments

Hey, just wanted to let you know real quick that I looked into the video playback issues some of you have pretty extensively now and at this point I’m pretty certain that there’s nothing I can do about them 🙁

Neither the blog software nor the server configuration seem to be the problem but the way Apple’s Safari browser is handling streamed videos. Many, many people have the same problem with their blogs and the answer always boils down to “this is a problem on Safari’s end”.

So for the time being you sadly won’t be able to watch videos on this blog with Safari under MacOS or iOS. If you’re on a Mac you can always visit the site with a better browser like Firefox or Chrome at least.

I’ll definitely keep looking into alternative ways to post the videos and try to find something that will work on Apple devices. Sorry again!

Video Playback Problems

Hey, as I mentioned over on milkboys, I’m aware that the videos here aren’t working on Apple devices. I wasn’t able to fix it yet (work & life were pretty stressy lately) but I’ll try some different plugins for video playback over the weekend and hopefully get it fixed. I’ll start posting videos again as soon as that’s done

UPDATE: Turns out the issue is harder to solve than I thought. I tried several different plugins but with none of them the videos work on Apple devices. I googled around a bit and the general diagnose was basically “Safari’s HTML5 player is bad” so I’m not sure if and how I can solve this.

I also tried to convert the videos into a format that is specifically labelled “iPhone-compatible” but that lowered the video quality, quadrupled the file size and still didn’t work in Safari…

If you have any ideas, please feel free to let me know!

I had some problems with the mail server yesterday, it should be all fixed now but if you’re a Patreon supporter and still didn’t get a mail with a link to generate a password for this blog, please let me know. (Do check your spam folder though, for some people the mail ended up in there apparently)

Drink up!

I never had a problem with posting any kind of naughty content on milkboys but that was also never really the focus of the site; it’s supposed to be a colourful mix of interesting pictures, videos, articles, thoughts, reviews and news.

I’m not naive enough though to believe that a sizeable chunk of the people coming to milkboys doesn’t enjoy the naked guys more than anything else 😉 On the other hand there are some people who rather not have a dick on every page.

So I decided to make a side blog that will cater to the people who enjoy the raunchier side of things, a site that’s all twinks. Everything is till a bit bare bones, I’ll be working on the theme, a site logo and icon etc over the next few days.

Most posts here will be freely available to everyone but I thought I might also use the opportunity to say thank you to all those people who enabled me to run milkboys for a whopping 11 years now by doing some exclusive posts for them every now and then.

I will try to email all Patreon supporters and donors over the coming days with their account details. If you donated before and didn’t get a mail, please let me know!
