            Bug ID: 61095
           Summary: Link to VLC for video/audio on iOS instead of
                    recommending an "HTML5 video browser"
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
               URL: https://itunes.apple.com/app/vlc-for-ios/id650377962
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: TimedMediaHandler
          Assignee: md...@wikimedia.org

    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: iOS 7.x

TimedMediaHandler's player widget, if invoked in Safari on iOS gives a vague
recommendation about using an "HTML5 video browser" and clicking again forces a
raw file download, neither of which are very helpful as Safari supports HTML5
video just great, only without the codecs we use.


Free & open source VLC for iOS (current version 2.2.2) is back in the standard
App Store distribution channels since some months ago, and can now accept
requests to stream HTTP URLs by prepending "vlc://" on the link.

Instead of showing the "For best experience, try an HTML5 video player" message
we should include an iTunes store link to VLC. Tapping on the playback button
should then trigger a VLC streaming URL rather than a direct download.
