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.
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.
I am pretty new to the forums and I hope I clicked the “correct” and “helpful” input selections in the right places since your solution was extremely helpful and I certainly want you to get credit for the solution.
I try and am happy to acknowledge the help.
I am an interactive course developer who has worked with Flash for over 12 years. It has been super for both the desktop and the web for my clients. I was able to produce one set of data that worked in all environments. Now that the Flash player in browsers is going away I must recreate the courses in html5. I have been using multi media since the beginning and now I find so many roadblocks for even the simple things that Flash handled automatically. Video is a prime example.
Unfortunately all of the courses I have developed for the customers are proprietary to their internal workforce and I am unable by contract to share any. Sorry!
In the example you provided, the video pops up in a separate player floating off the main page. Is it possible to embed the video in the page like the other formats I must use such as webm and ogv?
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.
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.
I took a look at Pickle and the licensing agreement. Since my developments are for a customer and they in turn sell a service with it… this is not a product I can use.
I do like the way it works though and if it were just for me .. this is a good solution.
I started to read over the entire licensing lingo on the license purchase agreement for commercial use. I can’t recall the exact place but when I ran into it I stopped reading. I can be wrong but it sure looked like there was money involved past the original purchase price.
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.
