Don't use Flash. It's a dead web technology because the list of supporting devices is shrinking each day. To reach the widest possible audience, you should use HTML5 <video> instead of Flash.
Copy & paste this code into a new, blank document. Save as test.html.
Change YourVideo.ogg, ....mp4 and ....webm to your actual video file names.
Save and preview in browsers / mobile devices.
<!doctype html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>HTML5 with Video</title> <!--[if lt IE 9]><script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script><![endif]--> </head> <body> <header> <h1>SITE NAME</h1> </header> <!--begin video--> <div id="video"> <video controls> <source src="YourVideo.ogg" type="video/ogg"> <source src="YourVideo.mp4" type="video/mp4"> <source src="YourVideo.webm" type="video/webm"> </video> </div> <!--end video--> </body> </html>
Thanks for your assistance, but I'm still unable to get the HTML5 videos to play. Doesn't do anything, just a black video square. I copy and pasted the coding exactly as a test file into a new blank document.
Where are the video files stored in RELATION to your document? For example, if the video files are in a sub-directory called MEDIA in your local site folder, you'll need to adjust the path accordingly.
<source src="MEDIA/YourVideo.ogg" type="video/ogg">
<source src="MEDIA/YourVideo.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="MEDIA/YourVideo.webm" type="video/webm">
But as John said, a link to your test page is the best possible way for us to help you.
The videos are in the same folder as the index file, no sub folder. My coding is listed below, your can also see the result at: http://www.rrdesigns4you.com/Video/index.html
URL is: http://www.rrdesigns4you.com/Video/index.html. The video works on my mobile phone (Safari) and Google Chrome, just not working in IE and Firefox. I spoke with technical support yesterday for my web hosting service and they advised me to get more codecs or coding for mp4 videos playing in IE and Firefox.
