[closed] 3.6 Video Player not working in IE8 (8 posts)

    I'm having trouble displaying video using the built-in Video Player in 3.6. It is playing audio but no video in IE8. All other major browsers including IE7 work so I'm puzzled.

    Example (Default TwentyThirteen + Default Video)

    [video mp4="http://player.progressionstudios.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/big_buck_bunny.mp4"]

    IE8 will play audio but no video.

  2. I believe the video support relies on http://mediaelementjs.com/. As far as I know, IE8 relies on flash fallback.

    Yeah, I have an installation of MediaElementJs manually added via HTML pages and it works in IE8 w/ Flash Fallback:

    However when I use WordPress and the shortcode (Or manual URL add), it doesn't work in IE8 (Does Work in all other browsers IE7, IE9+, Chrome, FireFox, Safari).

  4. I will look take a look on a Windows PC with IE8 in a moment :)

  5. I was able to view the video while emulating IE8 using IE10 Developer Tools.

    Thanks for the quick responses! I tried some further trouble-shooting:

    I installed IE8 natively on a Windows XP Machine (Not Working). The player plays audio but no video. Here is a screen-shot: http://i.imgur.com/eRRAdp1.png

    Emulating IE8 using IE9 Developer Tools only plays audio but no video . Here is a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/Tyda5x2.png
    Emulating IE8 using IETester only plays audio but no video as well.
    Emulating IE8 using IE10 developer tools plays the video perfectly.

    I am also having this issue. Has anyone found a fix?

    IE8 / WordPress 3.8.1 = No video and cannot make Full Screen
