<html><video width="300" height="190" controls="controls"><source src="magic.ogg"  type="video/ogg"/><source src="magic.webm" type="video/webm"/><source src="magic.mp4"  type="video/mp4"/></video></html>

i know that IE9 supports mp4 format but still it does not run.Check the site once.The url is : http://programmingbulls.com/html5-video.
I don't what to say. The IE blog says IE9 only supports two formats, and that mp4 is not one of them. Wouldn't that makes sense since you aren't able to get it working? Have you found a source saying that IE9 does support mp4?

but you won't believe IE's own developer blog site? I guess there's no convincing you otherwise, so I don't know what else to say. Edited by thescientist

Question to all html 5 pros or others who may know:I am trying to use the new <audio> tag and getting unpredictable results. For example, this code as an html page does NOT work on IE (i.e. message shows that "Your Browser does not support this audio element"):<!DOCTYPE HTML><html><body><audio controls="controls" autoplay="auto" style="margin-top:70px;"> <source src="ting.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" />Your browser does not support the audio element.</audio></body></html>However, when I try it at the W3 schools "Tryit Page" (http://www.w3schools.com/html5/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_audio_controls), still using the same version of IE. it works fine (no message displayed and the sound plays normally).This is very confusing and I'd love any insights.Thanks,TC_________________________________________Dream up coding solutions - http://www.dreams.ca

vipul_vj,There are a few reasons why it might not be working, but IE9 can display mp4 video. Is IE viewing your page in compatibility view? If so I have two ideas:1) Do you have a Doctype defined?2) Try adding <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" > to your headOtherwise, you can insert a flash fallback into your video tag. Try using video for everybody, which generates code for you including a flash fallback for older browsers:http://sandbox.thewikies.com/vfe-generator/Hope this helps
