[Plugin: VideoJS - HTML5 Video Player for WordPress] Video player doesn't show using shortcode (5 posts)

    Trying either of these methods, the player does not show up in IE or FF or Chrome. Only in FF and Chrome does a black box show up but with nothing to click on or show.

    Any suggestions?

    The first shortcode may not work because it does not have a poster image or defined size.

    The second one should work though, except that you have a small typo. You need an = after height:

    Thanks for the typo check, I noticed that too and fixed it, but it still does not work.

    Hmmm, worked fine for me in Chrome. Does it work if you add a poster image: poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png"

    Well, it turns out that the wordpress theme we are using is the culprit (custom developed theme for our university). After disabling the theme, videojs worked as documented.

    Do you have any suggestions for getting it to work with our custom theme?
