HTML5 Video - On Android video is black with sound playing (2 posts)

    I have never had this issue with HTML5 Video before.

    The problem:

    I have inserted this code into a wordpress page:
    <video width="480" height="270" controls autoplay>
    <source src="http://filelocation" type="video/mp4">
    <source src="http://filelocation" type="video/webm">

    On an iPad it works perfectly, on my Samsung Note II it shows a black frame and plays sound.

    I have also used the JW Player 6 plugin and the same thing happens.

    If I put the video in the template file it works perfectly too but I need it inserted in the page.

    Does it have something to do with where the file is located?

    Where do you place your videos and how does your link look in the code?

    Video does not work in a wordpress page
    Video works in template files and on normal html pages
    Have used the standard html5 video code and JW Player 6 plugin shortcode.
    Have reset Samsung phone

    Please solve my problem!

    What format is the video file? What codecs are needed? Does a very basic one work (not HD)?
