    Isn't mp4 pretty much the most widely supported cross platform video container? HTML5 video tags certainly support it. I'm sure you can embed mp4 video into a webpage without HTML5 support as well.
    And a week later, I think my brain has clicked into place.
    I'd so locked myself into flv as being the "mutli-platform" playback format that I'd ignored mp4 !

    Could you all try out
    St Leonards CE Primary School


    and just confirm that it plays back (or not as the case maybe) in your browser(s)

    All I had to do was stick
    Code:
    {mp4}class6/re2012/David and Goliath animation final version_x264{/mp4}
    in my joomla article (I use the AllVideos plugin) and it did it all for me

    Nope. But, we're using IE7...

    It's also popping up a MIME type config error. And asks if you want to restore them back to quicktime.

    Regardless of whether you choose yes or no, it breaks.

    All that's shown is a black box on the website with a broken quicktime file icon.


    Will post images if requested.

    Works fine in Firefox - loads Quicktime on here to handle the playback.

    I'll think if they work across IPad Safari, IE8, IE9, Chrome and Firefox then I'll be happy.

    Works here on an Ipad and Chrome and IE8 on XP
