[Plugin: VideoJS – HTML5 Video Player for WordPress] IE8 ID Fix for VideoJS WordPress Plugin

  • Hi,

    i ran into a few problems with the current videojs plugin 3.0 on IE8.
    Found out the code needed a unique ID to work:

    I added two lines to the video-js.php file (plugin folder/videojs):

    Just under the ‘poster’ array – line 29.


    'id' => '',

    Replace line67 with this line:

    <video class="video-js vjs-default-skin" id="{$id}" width="{$width}" height="{$height}"{$poster_attribute} controls {$preload_attribute}{$autoplay_attribute} data-setup="{}">

    I copied the edited video-js.php file to pastebin:
    http://pastebin.com/E7HJG1v8

    Important:
    you need to provide a ID-Tag in your article post – like this:
    [video mp4="video.mp4" ogg="video.ogg" poster="video.jpg" id="video1" width="640" height="360"]

    Worked for me!

    Awesome, thanks! I’ve added an id to the github source, and just need to update the wordpress database version.

    This plugin was updated ten days ago but it will still not play the video correctly or show controls in IE8. Was this fix not implemented?

    I looked at the code, and tried what was listed here because I saw that the line was not changed, but it didn’t fix the problem…

    The only way to get the browser to play is to go into “compatibility mode” but then a user still can’t see the controls or pause the video.

    Any chance this will ever work right for users with Windows XP who have no upgrade past IE8? It’s still a BIG portion of the users out there…
