That's what motivated me to rethink my "med" format files (428x240). A lot of people are going "handheld" today ... and the "med" format files can easily be made compatible with them (if they aren't already). At least, hehe, that's the theory. I've never owned a handheld device (except a cheap Tracfone) and wouldn't really know.

I have never heard of the "med" format and Google did not seem to know about them either?
For mobile devices, the formats of choice are "mp4", "ogg" and "webm" along with "divx" and "mkv"
On my website, I have been using the FlowPlayer as that supports flash and subtitles, but not as well as I would like. I am therefore currently looking into other players like "Kaltura" and "Video-js" as they seem to support flash and html5 format videos and importantly, multiple subtitle languages and video sizes (360p, 480p, 720p) as well. I am currently trying to test them, but am having problems working out the exact configuration I need and getting it to work.
Is there anyone on this forum who is an expert on this and can provide me some technical assistance? That would speed up the implementation of this all. My aim is to provide all episodes with all available subtitles languages using the mp4, ogg and webm formats in video sizes 360p (640x360), 480p (854x480) and 720p (1280x720).
These videos would be offered on www.startrekphase2.de
with the website being available in English, German and a third language (yet to be announced). Once all this is implemented, it would be possible to add further languages as we find volunteers interested in providing the text for the respective languages.
As you can see, that is a lot of work getting that all organized and I preferably want that all to be ready in time for Kitumba. As I do not know when Kitumba will be finally released, it is difficult to plan the timing for that. I hope to have the updated website with at least some of those new features online by Halloween if I can.
Are there any beta testers out there interested in helping me out?
