    My dream is that all the competition form other Tablet, will force Apple to allow flash on the iPAD. That way we would enjoy the best site for quality videos such as "http://vimeo.com".
    Take a look at that video on your PC , and see what we loose:

    That is not because of the iPad. It is because of youtube. They must be updating the video since it was fine yesterday. There are others on youtube too of that video... here is another:

    My point was that it's not a unique video to vimeo. If I was trying to show how important it was to be able to see vimeo on the iPad I would have wanted to show something vimeo-exclusive. :)

    On my iPod Touch 4g there is an option to send my movies/videos to Youtube as wells as Vimeo.

    It doesn't matter which I send to I can watch it on my iPad.

    What is my point?

    Well, pretty soon people will send videos to these places from all sorts of devices and as HTML 5 becames the new standard, this Falsh debate will die its long awaited death.

    I have Abobe Premiere Elements and there is an option to save the output in H264 format. So what's the big deal? Just save it in a format that everyone can view it in.

    My dream is that adobe flash suddenly disappears and we can forget all about it.

    Sure you did... oh wait it was an embedded video with no "link" to click. And I just filmed the next blockbuster on my iPad 2.

    I just played it on my iPad 1 from within the IPF iPad app, it worked just fine. Beautiful film BTW.

    I don't have any special software installed for videos other than what came with the iPad.

    Am I missing something? I just clicked at the top of the video where it says "the aurora on vimeo" and it took me to the website and played the video.

    I haven't done any jail breaks or downloaded any special apps (nor am I 12 or retarded :rolleyes:) so I think you can watch videos from vimeo just fine on the iPad.

    It is a nice video by the way.

    Yes, I watched it also. I look at Vimeo all the time on my Ipad, have for a good long while. They brought their video into line to view on the Ipad maybe last summer. Its been awhile. Beautiful video.

    Why is everyone viewing this thread via IPF app assuming it is the same in Safari? It's not. A simple hop over to Safari would have shown that. I don't know why Peled chose to start this thread but this is what the first page looks like in Safari...

    I'm not using IPF (don't even know what that is). Click on the title like I said in my previous post and it takes you to the website and plays the video.

    It seems that vimeo's embedding does not work with ipadforums.net, because if you open the link straight in Safari, it runs just fine:

    I give up. I'm pretty sure he was wanting to see it right here embedded, like you can YouTube video. Why else would he post it?

    Vim wrks perfectly on iPad. They must've adopted html5. By the way, that video shown is in high quality. Or at least looks like it on my iPad. I love how clear n crisp it looks. OP, what are u talking about? Doesn't look like we missing anything...lmfao Vimeo works very well on iPad. ;-)

    I watched it from IPF and the link. I didn't open it in Safari though that's normally how I view Vimeo. Watched it today, shared an HD with friends, works fine on my Ipad. I was hoping it would play with Airplay and Apple TV but I don't believe that happened with 4.3 altho' I haven't upgraded my 1 yet.

    He says in his OP you cannot enjoy the Vimeo website on your iPad (which you actually can), nothing about not being able to embed the video onto this website.

    And even if that were what he was going for, it takes what? less than 2 seconds to click on the video and bring up Vimeo.com. Not exactly a huge deal IMO.
