    Default Why does tapatalk block a video embedded here that works from a PC?

    Reference this vid:

    Works fine on computer. Tapatalk says it infringes on copyright and refused to show.

    Who's right?

    Has nothing to do with Tapatalk, videos with unlicensed copyrighted music will not play on mobile devices.

    Yes, but how/why? Any idea what technology is actually doing the blocking? And how was that tech was able to detect that the vid linked to is infringing?

    It could be this is too technical a question for this forum, but maybe someone here knows.

    You tube can detect the device quite easily. It just detects the browser your using and acts accordingly. There are ways around it, like in Chrome for Android you can get the browser to report that it is a desktop if you know where to change the settings.
