Some (but by no means all) video tags display scrambled in the web browser when played. I have observed this particularly on Twitter and Mastodon, but I don't think it's isolated to those sites.

It's good practice to list your device type and OS version with tags, which saves people like me, from having to read all the way through each post to find this particular info (or not at all) at the bottom of the page......just sayin' ;)

@Edz, does that mean it only happens in Jolla 1?

Thanks for spotting this. It should be fixed in 2.1.4.
