    I installed the WP Plugin.

    Converted the different formats..using
    http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/

    [video mp4="FullPath.mp4" ogg="FullPath.ogv" webm="FullPath.webm" poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png" preload="auto" autoplay="true" width="640" height="480" id="movie-id" class="alignleft"]

    Plays one of the files fine… but its not the mp4 cause when i right click the video player i see the other controls like html5 or something

    I disable HTML5 through firefox about:config ..

    Now, the video will not play, aka… does not fall back to the mp4 file.

    I cannot provide a URL at this time.

    I hope I could get some common possibilities to try.

    Is there a different way to test the playback of each file, without disabling HTML5 through a browser?

    the flash player doesnt come up on the page.. when the video area is just black ,i right click and i see disabled html5 video controls.. so somethings not called the flash player??

    just a thought

    ok before i hit Post, i tried it in IE TESTER, i had to install flash through IE tester to get flash working through it anyways, then refreshed the page and now the flash file is player.. cause when i right click it.. says Flash

    so i guess disabling html4 in firefox doesnt really work that way??

    would still appreciate some feedback of possible

    If you want to test each different file I would just include one source in the short-tag at a time. First (Test in Chrome/IE – Firefox should fallback to flash):
    [video mp4="FullPath.mp4" poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png" preload="auto" autoplay="true" width="640" height="480" id="movie-id" class="alignleft"]

    Then (Test in Chrome/Firefox):
    [video ogg="FullPath.ogv" poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png" preload="auto" autoplay="true" width="640" height="480" id="movie-id" class="alignleft"]

    Then (Test in Chrome/Firefox):
    [video webm="FullPath.webm" poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png" preload="auto" autoplay="true" width="640" height="480" id="movie-id" class="alignleft"]

    Thank I didn’t even think of this..:)

    But now I’m wondering…
    This would test the playback of video, but not the actual script choosing to Fall Back…. if a another video did not work.

    Since its just one video its only going to seek one video?

    Just my thoughts

    Can you test in IE? If so you can run in IE8 or IE7 mode to try the flash fallback. Or just include an mp4 src and test in Firefox.

    I dont get the flash fullback either I used this shortcode below with firfox and just got a empty box when right clicked no flash menu came up.

    [video mp4="http://urltomovie/videos/mymovie.mp4" preload="auto" autoplay="false" controls="true" id="movie-id-home-2" poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png" width="600"  height="300"]

    Cheers
