We are delighted to announce a new and much requested feature: Nimbb video playback on iOS!

It’s now possible to watch a video on your Apple's iPad, iPhone or iPod using the new Live/Play function of the Web Service. Using a simple URL, you can start watching a video of your Nimbb account on your mobile device.

The best way to get started is to use the HTML5 video tag. Simply copy the following code in your HTML page and replace the PUBLIC_KEY and VIDEO_GUID with the good values:

<video width="320" height="240"
src="http://api.nimbb.com/Live/Play.aspx?key=PUBLIC_KEY&guid=VIDEO_GUID"
poster="http://api.nimbb.com/Live/Thumbnail.aspx?key=PUBLIC_KEY&guid=VIDEO_GUID"
