Default Prevent android launch native viewer in a lightbox

Hello,

I have a livestream embed url in an IFrame that is inside a lightbox on a web page. When the user plays the video, the video jumps out of the browser and plays in the android native video player. Is there any way I can prevent this from happening? I'd like the video to stay within the lightbox.

I've tested it and occasionally a livestream embed link will work correctly, but the one I want to use always opens the native view in full screen mode.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

twtodd,

This is occurring because we deliver to Android devices using RTSP protocol. Unfortunately, there is no built-in way to prevent the video from opening in the default player on Android without using Flash.

Is there a way to force the flash player? I have flex, etc?

Thanks.
