HTML5 Video Tag Gotcha - IE9

| Comments

If the tag doesn’t work in IE9, but the video if you access it directly (it should play in Windows Media Player) - make sure the mime-type is set correctly.

The mime type for .mp4 is video/mp4 Other browsers seem to cope with the bad mime type but IE9 refused to play the video. Its nice to see IE9 being a stickler for standards for a change!
