Missing plugin to play mp4 file
« on: October 11, 2015, 04:51:03 PM »
Hi -

I added an extension for .mp4 files following Vano's instructions 

The file I wanted to play was huge, bigger than 20mb, so I uploaded it via ftp.  The file is there no problem.

The issue is that in almost all of the browsers, I get this message: "a plugin is needed to display this content."  The file will play on IE 11 but will not play on Firefox, on Waterfox, on Pale Moon, and on Chrome.  I have atttached a printscreen

Here is the mime type I have added in the upload_definitions.php file:
$mime_type_match['mp4'] = array("video/mp4", "application/octet-stream");

Here is the code in the mp4.html file:

<!-- Template file for MP4 Movies  -->
<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="320" height="256" codebase="">
<param name="SRC" value="{media_src}">
<param name="CONTROLLER" value="TRUE">
<param name="AUTOPLAY" value="TRUE">
<param name="CACHE" value="TRUE">
<param name ="SaveEmbedTags" value="true">
width="320" height="256"
SaveEmbedTags ="true"

yes, I have the file extension in the acp settings. 

Should I use a different set of codes for the mp4.html file?  Any ideas?
