Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page that doesn't require authentication (signing on)?

This should work with WebM format provided that the server sends the file with the correct MIME type.

Can you paly the file if you paste the URL of the WebM movie in the location bar?

Cor-el you can try: peterahs.se/test/login.php it's no problem to show the film when I put the page outside the protected area, and it's exactly the same code as the page that is password protected. ??? The protected area is to address http://www.distanskurs.net/Slaktforskning/klass1/Dokument/lektion2_doc.php user and password are test8

All three files on the second link give a 404 not found error, so it looks that the files either aren't there and can't be accessed.
I've tested it in Firefox and Google Chrome.

The requested URL /Slaktforskning/klass1/film/slaktforskning.ogg was not found on this server.

Did you verify that those files are on the server?

All film types are available on the server, mp4, webm and ogv. If I right-click the box and select copy video address, paste it into the address field of a blank page, then I can download the video and view it in vlc, so apparently can firefox find the video on the server.

There is no problem if I use Goggle Crome, Explorer, OmniWeb, and Opera. It's only Firefox that fail to show the videos.

Is there anyone who can explain why Firefox can view the film when it is outside the password protected page, but not when it is behind the protected page? I'm stunned right now.

On the login page, the OGV video plays. The Firebug console reports this for the webm file:

HTTP "Content-Type" of "text/plain" is not supported. Load of media resource http://peterahs.se/test/film/mata_in.webm failed.

Make sure Apache is configured to associate the video/webm mime type with the .webm extension.

Edit: I wasn't able to load the other page. Not found.

Hi sassytina, where are you seeing this issue? Also, what OS are you running (e.g., Windows 7, MacOS)?
