Non-compatibility with HTML 5 multimedia and camera functionality access RRS feed

  • Question

  • Due to compatibility issues of the IE browser with HTML5 multimedia and camera functionality access, our API is not functioning 
    properly on the IE browser. It is not reading the camera required for our website and we are unable to sort out the issue even after 
    trying multiple plugins. Is there anyway in which we can enable the browser to read the camera and go through the process smoothly?

  • Hi,

    Have you enabled camera access for Flash on your Flash control panel? You did not mention which windows version you are using.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Currently, we have not integrated flash player since Flash Player is a relatively old plug-in, it has become increasingly vulnerable to online threats like viruses and hackers. We are using IE 8.0

    We are using HTML5 video tag

  • Hi,


    IE8 does not support html5 media or semantic elements, nor css 3.

    IE8 is no longer supported by MS unless you have an extended support agreement.

    Are you sure you are using IE8? (help>about Internet Explorer),


    are you using IE11 with compatibility view or Enterprise site mode lists?

    see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie11-deploy-guide/

    It is recommended that for windows 7 and higher (and server versions of windows 2008 R2>) that you upgrade to use IE11 which does support the HTML 5 living standards.

    Comodo.com has some webkit and gecko based web browsers that may support html5 media elements on XP clients.

    You did not mention your windows version.
