    MP4's do not display on my webpage
    (New to forum, Posted this in wrong place 1st time)

    Saw today for the first time my webpages on an iPad. I noticed my MP4 Videos do not display. I get the play triangle button with a strike through.

    Below is the code I am using. Can anyone suggest why it wont play on an iPad when it works fine on PC's and IE and Mac's with Safari. Should I use a different code?


    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="" width="478" height="266">
    <param name="src" value="HopeTownHV.mp4">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="controller" value="true"><embed height="266" pluginspage="" src="HopeTownHV.mp4" type="video/quicktime" width="478" controller="true" autoplay="true">

    I am having the identical problem with this code and the iPad2...

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
    codebase="" height="320"
    <param name="src" value="">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="loop" value="true">
    <param name="controller" value="true">
    <embed pluginspage=""
    type="video/quicktime" controller="true" autoplay="true" loop="true"
    height="320" width="400">

    What is the best way to create video clips (as the above code does for Safari on any other Mac machine) for viewing with Safari on the iPad2??

    I tried this next item with HTML5 <video> tag. I am told that this works on the iPad. Try it on your iPad and let me know if it works (mine has not yet arrived)

    Thanks for any help!

    Use HTML5.

    Read up on the <video> element in HTML5. When you declare the element, you can set numerous <source> elements as children of the <video> element. These should ideally contain formats which cover all platforms. You can also have an <object> which provides a Flash fallback for browsers that don't support HTML5. A quick example of the code could be:

    <video controls autoplay>
    <source src="video.mp4" type="video/mpeg"></source>
    <source src="video.ogv" type="video/ogg"></source>

    <object width="800" height="600" data="video.swf">
    <param name="movie" value="video.swf">
    <embed src="video.swf" width="800" height="600">

    <p>Your browser doesn't support any of our formats</p>

    That should point you in the right direction. There's so much information available about HTML5 video.

    Oh, remember to set a HTML5 doctype if you're using that markup:
