      I want to prepare my video for the web using the HTML5 video tag. I've got a nice MP4 version of the video from PrE 10, but apparently Firefox won't play it, but will play "WebM" videos. I'm not familiar with that format. I've poked around the "Share" menu, but haven't found WebM. Is it there somewhere, or there by a different name, or do I have to do something else?

          Don't ask me to quote the source because I can't recall but I saw it written online that Firefox now supports mp4, at least on mobile devices.

            Get yourself Mozilla Foxfire Version 20.0.1 (which is updating as I type). It will open H.264.mp4 file from Premiere Elements 10 (at least when created from Share/ Mobile Phones and Players).


            Is your situation more complicated than I am interpreting it?


            Please give it a try and let us know if that worked for you and resolved the matter.

              My Mozilla Firefox was just updated to 21.0, and it also supports playback of that H.264.mp4 Premiere Elements 10 file.


              Would the webDVD feature of Premiere Elements 10 Share meet your needs at all. That in reality is a flash file with a menu. After export, the build folder includes a html file.

                THanks markerline-- That's cool that they're going to support MP4, but I want the video to play for those who may not have the latest version of Firefox. I guess I need to research more just what "WebM" is...

                  Thanks ATR-- I looked at the web DVD possibility, but PrE wouldn't let me proceed without creating menus... I didn't want to go there.

                    Unfortunately, it gets very hard to cover ALL bases, when it comes to clients/viewers.


                    Good luck,

                      Have you run across the following WebM information in your research on the topic



                      It appears that you are looking specifically for

                      Video Compression = VP8


                      Audio Compression = Vorbis

                      and the compression with a .webm file extension (wrapper format).


                      I have not worked with WebM and have never seen that it has been supported by Premiere Elements for import or export.
