Any news updates for a HTML5 version of Hubnut? iOS has become the "Internet Explorer" of yester-year for developers... "if it doesn't work in iOS, it can't be used at all!" I'm guessing there are many of us that are eagerly waiting for a non-flash Hubnut. --Thanks--

From a profesional point of view it is pointless and give a very bad image of me when i show my website to people and they tell me that videos are not there..... Will go back to YouTube certainly if a html version doesn't come in the next week... Vimeo staff doesn't seem to answer more than: "it will take some time".... It is a bit disappointing

Could really do with this asap ... any update

I second this. I bought Vimeo Plus with the idea that I would be able to showcase my project using it on iOS devices.

VIMEO STAFF - I think you owe it to us to let us know what's going on with the HTML5 hubnut. I've been paying a subscription for a couple of months now, after being told that this would arrive 'very soon' and still nothing.

Thanks for your response, Soxiam, but it would be nice to know what "it will take some time" means. It's pretty vague. That could be a few hours, to a few decades.

Ehm... I'm awaiting too for an iOS working version. It works fine on Android, fine on iMac, I'd like being the same on iOS too...

Would an HTML5 version support a transparent background? I'd like it to look as if the hubnut is part of the page rather than boxed in.

anyone have any alternatives in mind for this? clients visit our sites on IOS devices & see nothing. tic-toc! :)

Please don't forget to let the new hubnut version finally support private -password protected- videos! Until now, as I argued many times on the forum, it simply didn't work!

Should we go to another video company? Like a week, ok. Months more, and we cant do business. Need honest answer. Many people have Built sites around your service. Not your fault about apple but either step up to html5 widget or tell us to go another way.

Unfortunately I do not believe it will be any time soon. Sorry but we have limited resources working on higher priority items at this time.

Hi Eric,

I'm sorry but as Sox mentioned we have had other priorities getting in the way of the HTML Hubnut. We hope to dedicate time to it soon.

This is why Vimeo sucks - ios and android support is so far behind YouTube - get with the programme!

Hi John,

If you have specific feedback please let us know, but unhelpful comments like this will not be tolerated on Vimeo.

hi VIMEO!! Bought pro service because I thought it would be the best showcase for my videos on mobile. But the Hubnut doesn't do it. Can someone from Vimeo answer this thread with a workaround or other solutions. I already paid the $199 but am about to launch and might have to use another hosting service. Help!

Matt Schwarz

Matt Schwarz Staff

Hi Meghan,

While the Hubnut doesn't support mobile devices yet, our normal player does. I'd recommend embedding the individual videos.

ICI Berlin

ICI Berlin Plus

Hey Matt, I'd love to do that, but since Vimeo embedding doesn't support neither playlists (!) nor timecode jumping (!) I do have a serious problem here. I convinced my company to do Vimeo instead of YT, because I was 100% that we could host our videos here with pretty much all features YT has, but using a moral and economically better service. That's why we pay. Now I have to realize that even as Plus User I cannot even do the basic stuff my company needs: e.g. embedding playlists with timecode jumps of the same video, or at least (having to do clips before) using a widget (hubnut) iOS compatible. This is a huge problem for me. What happened to the HTML5-Hubnut? What about other Widgets (like an embedded html5-playlist-player)? Or a working "Montage" (allowing videos that are hidden on Vimeo).
I still like you, Vimeo. But I am starting to get desperate. Please give me something.

hi Matt -- it seems really weird that Vimeo doesn't have this basic functionality and has been seemingly working on it since 2010? What's the situation?

Matt Schwarz

Matt Schwarz Staff

Hi Meghan,

Simply put, a player that serves multiple videos one after another on a mobile device is not simple, in fact due to the varying nature of devices out there, this is quite difficult.

For now we you can embed single videos and have them work on most devices, but our Hubnut widget is still Flash based.

So are there plans to make an html5 hub nut?

I would love to see a mobile friendly hubnut. I agree with all of the posters here, mobile devices are becoming more and more important. Having a mobile friendly hubnut or some alternative to it would be awesome!

A temporary alternative could be a widget that shows a channel's videos in order as links. I think, to most people, it is important to get a solution that automatically lists and organizes videos to eliminate work. Thumbnails are nice and the hubnut looks cool, but in the end, just having something, even with them listed as links, would work too!

Another potential idea is to add code to the current hubnut so that when viewed on a mobile site, a non-flash version would appear (shows up as a list of videos with links) rather than nothing at all.

I'm not a developer so I don't know if that would work but just throwing ideas out there.

This request is 3 years old. Have you really been working on it that long? Seems like a feature that a lot of users may benefit from not some big innovation. I hope you're still listening?

This year we bought a Pro-account to view our videos on our website via hubnut. Very disappointing that it did not work out till now. After three years of waiting ( some other user really did) i think it is about time something happens.

Add me to the list of users who LOVE vimeo, but are desperate for an update to HubNut. For years, we've been told you're working on this. I really hope something happens soon.

Updating my website, I set my main content (top-left) to be Vimeo's hubnut. After testing on mobile devices I google searched to find this disheartening thread.

I agree with RCEV: an error-handle for non-flash browsers could appear (shows up as a video / list of videos with links) rather than nothing at all.

Vimeo, I love you. Please listen to your users. Thank you for your consideration :)

Add my cry to the chant. If not hubnut, some other form of Vimeo playlist for mobile. You can do it, we know you can!

When is a Vimeo rep going to respond to this? What's the timeline for adding this feature please.

I am an otherwise very happy Vimeo + customer but after many years needing this & patiently waiting I opened an account also with Sprout Video - it offers a seamless & quick way to easily integrate HTML5 video playlists into websites. Expensive but works like a charm.

Seriously, Vimeo. This is a MUST have. The students and teachers I work with are getting fed up with browser apps that run flash in order to use my videos on the go. I don't blame them. You guys are collective geniuses! This has been a request for YEARS. Please, please, PLEASE fix this. And soon.

I think that we all love vimeo, but the last staff response is 5 month ago...seriously...

For what good it may do, this is something we also need. The very thought of having to move six years worth of video makes me ill, but this is functionality we must have. The majority of our traffic is now mobile and IOS, and the hubnut is the best practical way to offer a series to the user, IF it supported HTML5 delivery.

Brooks Andersen

Add me to the list. Been waiting 3+ years. Only been sticking around because it was "on their to-do list".

It's pretty clear this isn't an important thing for them to work on because it only helps current customers, not make money.

I would PAY for an HTML5 Hubnut. Although, it looks like I'm going to have to move somewhere else.

Hi Vimeo.
3 years to develop a HTML5 version of hubnut? Really... any ETA?

Sad face. :( It would be good to put a disclaimer above the Hubnut code warning people that it will only work with Flash-enabled devices. I wouldn't have wasted time putting the code on my website if I'd known. Thanks!!

Just bought vimeo pro so I could use the widget to show my video portfolio on ALL devices - can't believe that it doesn't work on ipad etc... I'm guesting that because the issue has not been address in the past 5 years that it never will ?
Can you advice?
Thank! Malc

Wistia looks to be a good solution to this problem. Clearly after 5 years of "soon," Vimeo doesn't plan on finishing this task.

Hubnut is still flash based, it won't play in any mobile device. Anyone knows any alternative for a video player list with thumbs? everything that I could find until now looks crap and is not very customizable.

Vimeo's not gonna update this... This thread is 5 years old and I've seen threads that are 7 years old asking for the same thing. In my opinion they never should have even released the hubnut, Then they wouldn't have angry members clamoring for them to update it. lol In any event, I too am looking for an alternative. I use Vimeo for other things and for the most part, it works fine. I would love an alternative to the hubnut that has similar functionality, but works across all devices. Has anyone found anything yet?
