    Hi,

    I am using Blue Griffin to build a web site and and trying to add some MP4 videos to the page.

    This is the code I am using

    Code:
     <video class="tab" controls="controls">Your browser does not support the
              &lt;video&gt; tag. <source src="VIDEO/Andy-Funeral%20Director-426.mp4"
                width="500" height="400"> </video>
    and the browser is showing the player with..

    Code:
    No video with supported format and MIME type found.
    The videos play on VLC etc.

    What could I do to fix.

    Thanks

    oz

  2. Don't use "-" in filename.

    The code implies you have a sub-folder named "VIDEO" so try "\VIDEO\........."


    But private hosting of video is not a good idea.

    Thank you guys. Tried both but still no go.

    I have contacted support, maybe they have turned something off to play vids.

    Will get back.

  5. I don't know if it's any help but the attached works for me. And using "-" in filenames doesn't.

    Assuming now that you have the video properly named and in the correct folder the error msg could be browser related.


    I recall a topic a year or so ago where the author had similar issues and video would only play on certain browsers. Of course you want your site to be browser-friendly and play in practically all.

    Take a look at this HTML code guide


    https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_video.asp


    You appear to be lacking the 'type' tag


    I found the topic I was referring to but most of it is not relevant to your issue.
