I’m very happy that you may consider the idea for the future. I truly believe this would be a well used feature. Unless you want to comprise your layout and design your layout based on iOS or leave iOS with a black screen, I consider the base video implementation to be broken.
When I saw the feature set for Hype 3, I was hoping that responsive layouts would do the trick but unless I am misunderstanding how it works, the method of determining the layout is solely based on pixel width. So If I use this method, it would also send android users to the iOS page, which I don’t want to do. Maybe if responsive layouts were expanded to have the option of choosing layouts based on pixel width, device or browser, I believe that would also fix my issues. Actually this may be an even better solution as it would offer at lot more flexibility for other uses as well.
In the mean time, I guess I am stuck with Java, which unfortunately I don’t know. I have tried researching as much as I can to hack something together but it doesn’t work. I know this is pretty basic stuff so maybe someone can help me out with where I have gone wrong. This is what I came up with so far:
