Hello, I'm trying to get a video to play in firefox. I've tested it in all other browsers and on iPad and mobile and have had no issues with getting it to play, except in firefox. I get this error: No video with supported format and MIME type found? I'm a front end guy and I'm not sure what to do here. Here is the site: www.manhattanphysicalmedicine.com.
I've contacted the host (GoDaddy) and they said to include a web.config file that re directs the browser to pull up the .ogg file. They are hosting on a windows server so i was told that an .htaccess file would not work. Here is the code in the web.config file:
<remove fileExtension=".mp4" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".mp4" mimeType="video/mp4" />
<mimeMap fileExtension=".ogg" mimeType="video/ogg" />
Here is the HTML:
<video width="560" height="300" controls autoplay>
<source src="images/flashintro.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
<source src="images/flashintro.ogg" type="video/ogg"/>
<object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="560" height="300">
<param name="movie" value="images/flashintro.swf">
Don't know why the code above is not showing?
I placed the web.config file on the root folder with no success. This seems harder than it should be. Maybe I'm missing something obvious? Is it worth bothering with .ogg files? Is there another option?
Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
