Following discussion at:


about the difficulty of playing Wikimedia audio and video on mobile
devices, we've added red links to:


for iOS and Android.

I'm sure some of the readers of these lists have the requisite
knowledge, to populate those pages; so please do!

The issue arose during a project I've been running with the BBC:


in which they've released clips of broadcast material under open
licence, for the first time.

Assisting mobile users to play our media more easily will lend weight
to future requests to them and other archive holders, to release
audio-visual resources under open licences.
