I visited that site on my Nokia Lumia 920. It did not show the player to me too so I went back to Internet Explorer 11 where I can emulate that I'm visiting the website with a Windows Phone 8.

As a more immediate solution, the open-...

If you're referring to the "share..." menu for 3rd party applications, it's completely up to the individual application if it'll compress the data prior to it being shared or not.

Built-in Player The phone's built-in video player, which is used to play videos on IE and other apps, doesn't have a seek mode like you'd expect. The Next and Previous are actually used to skip forward and backwards within a clip.

It is not possible to replace the default video player in IE or other system apps - neither by the user nor the developer. You can launch a specific video app from your own app as a dev, but that's all for now. You can always post suggestions to http://windowsphone.uservoice.com

When you ...

There are 3 posts that have been created ...

I don't own a Lumia 820 but this calculation shown be a good guide for how much time you can record. According to the Lumia 820 specs on the Nokia website, the main camera records at 1080p with a frame rate of 30 fps. I assume these are the "standard settings" that you refer to.

It's nearly impossible to guess what features will appear in future version of Windows Phone unless the information is leaked or Microsoft explicitly say a feature is coming (eg.

The volume of audio and video played on your phone depends on the volume of the file itself (see technical details here). For example, you might play a video on YouTube and then a similar video on Vimeo with different maximum volumes.

Apps in Windows Phone / Mobile are sandboxed, meaning that they each save their content to their own little space unless told by the developer to do otherwise.

If you're using Windows 10 Mobile, MyTube! works well (it may also ...
