  • Hi Suhail Tandel,


    Based on your description, you mentioned that your default IE version is IE5, but I noticed that your system is Windows 10, since the default version build-in Windows 10 is Internet Explorer 11. It made me very confused, would you please post a screenshot and tell us more details?


    In addition, since video tag is only support in HTML5, however,  Internet Explorer 5 doesn’t support HTML5. Refer to the link:


    For Internet Explorer 9, if the video fails to play, please check the compatibility settings. Refer to the link:


    Best Regards,
