    From what I can tell, this video seems to play on laptops/desktops, but is not playing on any phones or tablets - apologies for this, I am presently reversing the process in an attempt to have it play across devices if it’s at all possible.

    I’m really sorry this is still proving an issue for so many of you. I have re-embedded the code for this video and have tried playing it on my mobile phone and my laptop, and it has worked for me. If the issue continues I will either put the video up on an external link or send direct videos to those of you that are unable to view the content.
