    Actually - would moodle handle this itself?

    There is a Moodle plug-in for HTML5 video called moodle-mplayer (based on JW Player), but I'm not sure if Moodle would do this natively.

    yeah I looked at that, I don't think it's going to work for what I want - and it's not been updated for a while with one dev.

    Probably not a good idea then.

    How did you get on with the videos in IE9?

    Webserver seems ok I think it must be my avconv commands - but I got heavily distracted by moodle today.
    does this play ok in IE and on WP8? http://www.808.dk/pics/video/gizmo.mp4

    I think I noticed my mistake already. Because windows is such a ball ache to setup and maintain I only use it in a virtual machine for testing things then reverting the image to stop it turning to sludge. XP was running IE7 and W7 was on IE8.
    Looks like the school has just dropped support for IE8.

    The video works fine for me in IE9 and IE10 when embedded in a HTML page.



    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
      <head></head>
      <body>
      
    	<video width="560" height="320" poster="frame.jpg" autoplay controls loop>
    	     <source src="gizmo.mp4" type='video/mp4; codecs="avc1.42E01E,mp4a.40.2"'>
    	<!-- <source src="gizmo.ogv" type='video/ogg; codecs="theora,vorbis"'> -->
    	</video>
      
      </body>
    </html>
    Clicking the link to the video in post #20 prompts me to download it as a file.



    For Windows Phone 8, you may be able to use the emulator in the SDK to test?

    Surely it shouldn't need to be embedded !?! - FF,Chrome,opera,android all seem to play it direct...

    Opens fine via media player on wp7, is will be using the system default handler to open it, if you want is to handle it in browser you'll need to tell it so by embedding

    ok. thats good to know.
    I can see why web developers get so fed up with IE now, everything else seems to work seamlessly!

    It's not really IE's fault that it supports user choice of player, if you as a web dev want to take that away then you can, you just have to specify. It's the other browsers swallowing everything up feature wise now so really they are the ones behaving more like old school IE.

    Embedding video is VERY different to linking to videos. Linking is very 1990s.... HTML5 allows streaming and much better bandwidth management.

    Thats what I want to show TV shows. I don't want them embedded into a tiny window on a browser.
    I guess I'll just let IE users figure it out form themselves.

    HTML5 embeds are like youtube style, aren't you just opening yourself up to disk space issues when users right click and download the videos?
