<source src="excel_Construction_Commercial.ogg" type="video/ogg" />
The filename extension for the video is wrong. It should by .ogv, not .ogg.
<source src="excel_Construction_Commercial.ogv" type="video/ogg">
Thanks for the reply. I am definitely moving the right direction.
I have changed my extensions but the video will still not play remotely. It does play locally.
Here is my new code
<video controls width="448">
<source src="Remodeling.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="Remodeling.ogv" width="448" height="298" type='video/ogg; codecs="theora, vorbis"'>
<source src="Remodeling.m4v" type="video/m4v">

I'm thinking I have a MIME type issue as I read this article online.
Here is a link
It's a great website for anyone looking to understand how to create and export video to html5.
Anyway here is the section of article I'm interested in.
What’s the proper MIME type? You’ve already seen it; it’s part of the value of the
typeattribute on a
<source>element. But setting the
typeattribute in your HTML markup is not sufficient. You also need to ensure that your web server includes the proper MIME type in the
If you’re using the Apache web server or some derivative of Apache, you can use an AddType directive in your site-wide
httpd.confor in an
.htaccessfile in the directory where you store your video files. (If you use some other web server, consult your server’s documentation on how to set the
Content-TypeHTTP header for specific file types.)
Can anyone tell me how to change my MIME type? I can see my .htaccess.html file and I tried adding in
AddType video/ogg .ogv AddType video/mp4 .mp4 AddType video/webm .webm
But the server will not let me upload the new .htaccess file. So I cannot change it.
I'm using GoDaddy and have complete admin rights rights as far as I can tell.
Again. Any help is greatly appreciated.
If your server won't let you upload the .htaccess file, you need to speak to your hosting company to ask if you have the necessary permissions to change it. If you don't ask them to change it for you.
