I had a message from a reader this morning who was frustrated because she couldn’t watch the Sunday Poem video by Kwame Dawes in her email. This is one of the few limitations of having Gwarlingo posts delivered by email.
Services like Feedburner (which deliver Gwarlingo articles to your email account) can’t transmit videos in an email message. I’m afraid that you will always get a black box whenever a video is included in a Gwarlingo article. The same thing also happens on occasion with iTunes music clips, Amazon featured-book boxes, etc. This isn’t a Gwarlingo-specific issue. The same thing happens to me when I receive posts from other blogs in my email inbox.
If you ever get the dreaded black square in a Gwarlingo post or a large area of white space where a music player should be, it simply means you need to visit the Gwarlingo website to access these high-tech features. Simply click on the header of the article to read the post and to see the additional multi-media features.
I apologize to any readers who were confused by this morning’s video post. Here’s a direct link to the Kwame Dawes poem, including the full video.
As an email subscriber, I hope you’ll visit the Gwarlingo website regularly, as well as the Gwarlingo Facebook page. There are additional stories available there meant to supplement your email subscription. As always, thank you for subscribing and for reading Gwarlingo. Enjoy your Sunday!
