What code is needed to play mp4 video in IE9

Feb 16, 2013 6:52 AM

I have been everywhere looking for a solution to this. I only get references which talk about what the problems, the issues, and what needs to be done but does not provide the actual html code that should be inserted into DW that will actually make it work in IE9.

 

I place .mp4, .ogv, .webm code that works in Chrome, Apple, Android, and Firefox browsers but NOT IE9. Can anyone help with this? It has been a very frustrating experience.

 

Thanks!

    Hello Jan,

     

    here is a code I used for inserting a mp4 video, loading from an image:

     

    <td><a href="yourPath/yourFile.mp4"><img src="yourPath/yourImage.jpg" alt="YourShortDescription. Click Here!" width="161" height="93" border="0" /></a></td>

     

    Width and height are your chhoice.

    Hello Jan,

     

    you are very welcome and ... I'm very proud about your words of praise! All the best to you! I'm curious about your website, of course, would you send a link to it?

    Hi Jan,

     

    ok, I understand. What concerns to embed a video directly in a website (I hope I understood you in the right way) you could have a look in this site I made for you as a draft: http://www.hansgd.de/sail/LBIC/imagTest/Vidtest.php.

     

    Feel free to use the source code.

    Jan,

    Have a look at Pickle Player.  It works in all devices including IE.  And the best part is you don't need to host 4 different versions of your videos (ogg, webm, mp4, flv).  Pickle works with just one file type.  Pickle also supports playlists.

    Where did you get the idea that the player license doesn't allow you to use it on your client's web site?

    I think you misinterpreted the agreement.

     

    You'll need to purchase a license for your client's domain.  As with any software, your client cannot sell or redistribute the player as his own. But there's nothing in the license that says your client can't sell his own products or services & use Pickle Player on his site.  If those were the terms, nobody would use it.

    Yes.  Fully tested and it works very well. 

    I recommend exporting your videos with QuickTime Pro to M4V for web.  This gives the best user experience (no waiting for downloads).
