Rouxbe Mac App
Did I remember seeing that an App for Rouxbe exists? I cannot find it anywhere so maybe I am imagining things...again:)
Introduce yourself, discuss the site and it's features or make a wish for things we can do to help you cook better
Rouxbe does not have an app in the app store. Instead we chose to make Rouxbe fully compatible with all mobile devices and tablets. So for Mac (e.g. iPhone, IPad) we have an html5 version of our player and the video plays beautifully on those devices.
Thanks for your question, and sorry for the delay in response.
We've been taking a look into how to deliver our video player for newer Android devices that no longer support Flash.
Currently, we are able to serve up an HTML 5 player for iOS devices and a Flash player for older Android devices. Unfortunately, the fragmentation in newer Android devices has made bringing an HTML player to them more difficult.
Rest assured that we are testing out some fixes and will let you know when we have found a solution.
I'm on of the guys with the new Android phones/tablets (have both) with JellyBean, and can't get the site to work on them. Having a tablet in the kitchen is much easier in the kitchen. Any idea when will the site be JellyBean compatible?
Hello, Mohammed. Thank you for letting us know about the compatibility issues you are encountering. I don't have an ETA for you just yet, but we will be prioritizing this bug in the new year. Right now there's a lot of exciting work going on that will have to come first. Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about it. :)
I have an Android ICS tablet and have the same issue with the flash videos. Even though Adobe no longer supports flash on Android, it is possible to install an archived version of the flash player. Since this is not offered through Google Play you need to change the security settings to allow this. The steps are as follows:
1) Go to Settings -> Security and select the "Unknown Sources" checkbox. This is needed because we'll be installing the flash player apk from Adobe and not through Google Play.
2) Go to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html and download the latest "Flash Player 11.1.for Android 4.0" under "Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives". On my device it installed automatically when the download was finished but you may need to click on the notification when the download completes.
3) You should now be able to watch the flash videos. I've had the best playback with Opera Mobile. The video with this browser is smooth but on the default browser and firefox mobile the video playback was choppy so you might want to experiment a bit with the browsers. I also recommend changing the plugin settings in the browser so that the video is enabled by default instead of "tap to play".
I don't have JellyBean so can't comment on how it works on those devices but from what I read on the internet the above flash player apk should work just as well.
