We're making new product videos. Just like you see everywhere with somebody talking about a product on a seamless. We're thinking about having a iPhone version that will play in portrait orientation as most of our products are apparel.

We're in the testing phase right now, just trying to decide on the look and format of our videos. We want to mock up a few different ideas in landscape for the web and portrait for the phones.

Do you guys have any idea of how to accomplish this? I can make a portrait oriented video easily enough. I can play it from a phone. But how can I host it online so it won't have a black rectangle around it? Then, how would I play it on a phone without the screen rotating?

Thanks for your help, all.

It sounds like instead of leveraging already existing delivery tools like YouTube / Vimeo, you're talking about locking down the playback format in a mobile platform to control the content and how it's consumed (i.e. portrait v. landscape in order to maximize real estate to showcase apparel).

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but you would need to create an app for that. Thinking out loud, you could create a response-design-oriented webpage from HTML 5, which will automatically know what kind of platform is viewing your page and adjust what video is served accordingly. In that scenario you're talking about hosting the site and videos in your own site hosted through a service like http://www.cirtexhosting.com/.

And the real reason I think you need to build an App instead is that in order to lock down the accelerometer -- keep the screen from flipping -- you'd have to have the app (video player) control the device somehow. I'm fairly confident you cannot do that through some simple web coding.

The little I know of the delivery side, I don't know that there's a simple solution to what you're asking.

Hi Corbin

I have dabbled a little bit in this. More inline with the ipad "Magazine " idea for fashion though. Just so you can see what it might look like you can see some of them here:





Thanks

Dimitrios
