What I am trying to do is embed a self-hosted video on a webpage. I have the video uploaded onto the web hosting in mp4, ogv and webm formats; converted where necessary using Miro Video Converter (if that helps?).
The code I have in place on the webpage is:
<center><video width="90%" controls> <source src="/system/files/HBA_ONLINE.mp4.mp4" type="video/mp4"> <source src="/system/files/HBA_ONLINE.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="/system/files/HBA_ONLINE.ogv" type="video/ogg"> Your browser does not support this video tag - Try viewing directly <a href="/system/files/HBA_ONLINE.mp4.mp4"> here </a></video></center>
The only format that seems to work is mp4 on Google Chrome; other browsers simply won't play the video in any format.
The silly question is; do I need to use a dedicated Drupal 7 module???
