Hi Mash,

Check out the list of slideshows that are apple/ipad compatible :

extensions.joomla.org/search?q=Slideshow app&q=slideshow iphone

Click on each one that seems interesting and view the demo if there is one and see if it is something you are interested in. :-)
Warm Regards,

Tessa Mero

Hi Mash,

Key question, are you looking for a slideshow extension that display both images and videos and is iPad/smartphone compatible?

Any of the following should work for an image slideshow on iPads and smartphones:

1) Diapo Slideshow:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...uery-slideshow/18193

2) Fancy Transition Image SlideShow:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...uery-slideshow/18028

3) Galleria Gallery Pro:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...uery-slideshow/16736

4) ARI Orbit Slider:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...uery-slideshow/14537

There's hundreds of others to check for as well in the JED:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...ges/images-slideshow

Looking for ones that are HTML5 would be your best bet.

As for videos, any of the following would work:

1) JW Player Advanced:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multime...ayers-a-gallery/8157

2) bo:VideoJS:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multime...yers-a-gallery/14836

3) FlowPlayer Reloaded:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multime...yers-a-gallery/14916

4) AllVideos:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multime...layers-a-gallery/812

5) HD Webplayer:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multime...yers-a-gallery/15664

Again, there's plenty more to choose from:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multimedia

and looking for HTML5 players is usually a good bet.

Kind regards,
Nick

Yes, looking for extension that display both images and videos that works on ipad/smartphones. The only one I've found is Cincopa but am a bit confused on that - apparently I would host the videos on their server? Not youtube/vimeo?

Yes, looking for extension to post video along with images in a simple slideshow that is ipad/smartphone compatible. Cincopa is the only one I've found but it doesn't seem to have a simple slideshow format and it appears they want you to host the video on their server..

Hi Mash,

In that case, the only one that I know of is JP Nivo Gallery: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-...uery-slideshow/18841

Could you give a try and see if it works for you?

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi Mash,

Did the demo work for you on an iPad or smartphone?

It's a commercial extension so it has to purchased to receive the download. Check out the following page:

Doesn't appear to upload to Joomla 1.5.25. Tough website to navigate with the translator.

Hi Mash,

It's only available for Joomla 1.6 . By the way, Joomla 1.5 will soon be reaching the end of it's life and we recommend starting all new sites in Joomla 2.5

This is something I have not wanted to deal with. So what are the pitfalls of migrating? Do I migrate to 1.6 and from there to 2.5? I've managed my sites for some time but get a little nervous with this transition, as I haven't done installs.

Regarding the JP Nivo Gallery, it is too limited. It does not have a parameter to set an external link for the images and will not allow the videos to autoplay. (They did create a 1.5 native version upon my request.)

So I'm still looking for a good slideshow that displays both images and video that works on mobile.

Hi Mash,

I'm not sure that there is one and I've double checked for you. At this point, it would be best to hire a developer to either create a custom extension for you or to add features to an existing one. You can find a list of our recommended developers on the following page:
www.ostraining.com/joomla-developers/
