Hello I had this working and I am using same code and I have noticed the last two months of videos are not playing in IOS Apple mobile. It plays on desktop with no problems. Can someone else look at this and see what I have set wrong. -- Thanks.

Check that there are no spaces in the file name on the server.
I just discovered that, when you click Add Media, the file name is displayed in the Media Library without spaces even if there are spaces in the actual file name. When you try to play the video you get 'Error Loading Media: File could not be played' (HTML5 mode) or 'Error Loading Media: File not found' (Flash mode) because the player is trying to find the file name without spaces which of course do not exist. Renaming the file (removing the spaces) fixed the problem.
I am working with h.264 mp4 file using adobe premiere pro. I do not use spaces in file names so that is not it. Desktop plays fine just doesn't play on iphone. Site is working. Thanks for all the suggestions -- Any more?
trying to embed a sample video into my backup file used for my site and then play it using Dreamweaver.
So I converted the .3gp video file to a .f4v Then I pasted that into my "video" file in my site folder
Saved it of course: Then inside the .html file I double clicked to view it. Error inside the player. Can't locate the file!
Tried every combo but Sunday and can't get anything to play.
You must have a sample code and file that is very basic to understand the format. Help!
I also have a similar problem. I'm trying to use the embedded player to play .m4a AAC audio files hosted on my Apache server. The HTML content of the page is generated by a python-based web application. The player displays fine, but when i hit play i get the error in question.
It's also interesting, that even if i change the filename in the script to a nonexistent file's name, i still get the same error (and not the 'file not found' one).
I also tried this with playing an mp3 file for testing purposes, which produced the same error.
I have the mime types configured on my server according to the document regarding Media Format Support.
Here is the link: http://22.214.171.124/flasktest/play
Your link works in HTML5 mode on the desktop, in Chrome, but not on my iPhone, either.
The MIME TYPE seems to be set up correctly.
I would try to do the following as a test:
I would link to this file on our server in lieu of your playlist items – http://www.longtailvideo.com/jw/upload/bunny.mp4 (link to it as each file in your playlist)
See if it works on your iPhone then.
If it does, download the mp4 file and then put it on your server, then link to it as each file in the playlist, see if it works now.
If it works in both cases, then the issue is encoding and iOS, but if it doesn’t work when it is on your server, then it has to be another server side setting to change. iOS can be picky about both of these.
@Attila – This file doesn’t appear to exist – http://126.96.36.199/flasktest/rec.m4a
The requested URL was not found on the server.
If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.
A few weeks ago worked flawless on all three browsers! Please help! Link: besmartbrand.com/about-us
I've upgraded to 6.5 Now it is working in all three browsers + Opera but it still gives the error message in FF. If I click on it, it works but that error message comes first whatever I tried. I tried also the suggested code for the player source that had as effect to make disappear the player. Any ideas? Thanks for your insights.
"but if it doesn't work when it is on your server, then it has to be another server side setting to change. iOS can be picky about both of these."
So I applied the bunny test you posted and based on your response/suggestion above- it seems clear that something is wrong on my server side that needs to be changed . . . What might be some suggestions for these changes?
Currently my Jwplayer embeds do not work in IE or FF but works perfectly for Chrome.
any suggestions would be great! link: http://virulentmedia.com/FreeMusic.html
Help! I am using the Publish Wizard to create code for streaming an mp4. The video plays just fine (from your website) on Chrome, FF, Safari, and Opera, but not on IE9. Here are links to the video and splash jpg: http://www.enchantmentrescueltd.com/video5.mp4 http://www.enchantmentrescueltd.com/video5_frame1.jpg Any ideas/solutions? Thanks
Additional Info: The following will not work or IE9 either, but does on the other browsers: http://www.enchantmentrescueltd.com/Streamtest.htm (Hopefully this will eliminate your site as a contributor). :-)
