Internet Explorer 11 & HTML5 video playback RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I've a problem with IE11 and HTML5 videos.

    They don't load.
    I've tried on youtube (as standard the video are played in HTML5) and video aren't starting.

    The only "workaround" i found is to play the videos in flash player (adding &nohtml5=1 at the end of the link...)

    Someone know a solution for IE&HTML5?

    Thanks and cheers

  • Hi,

    As this issue is mainly related to HTML5, I suggest discussing it in our IE development forum. They are the best resource to troubleshoot this issue.

    for those who yo are interested... here is my reply...

    The answer for you must be that one of your IE settings is preventing running HTML5 video formats.... try Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, Multi-media section, check "Enable alternative codecs in HTML5 media elements", save your changes then (!important) you MUST restart your computer for the changes to take affect.....

    If that does not work, post back on this thread with the FULL web address of the youtube video you are trying to play, so we can visit it and see which video formats youtube supports for it. Also post back with a description of how you are navigating to the video.... eg. from a favorite link, copy and paste in the IE Address bar, typing in the Address bar...

    if you are launching it from a favorite link, then try editing its url address by adding &nohtml5=0 at the end of the link.. to edit a favorite link, right click on it and select "Properties" from the context menu

    I've got this same problem when playing some live YouTube video. I checked and my "Enable alternative codecs in HTML5 media elements" is enabled.

    The above link is an example and below is a screenshot.

    Does anyone have a solution? Regards
