Getting those HTML5-Videos running // correct MIME-Types on Server
During a Projekt, i was wondering, why local use of HTML5 Videos was running, but online it failed.
It turned out, that the MIME-Types for .ogg or .webm were not correctly set. The Server served them as plain text-files.
To get the Server to add correct headers to the files, it is helpful to add those lines in your .htacess .
Not all of them are always neccessary.
AddType video/ogg .ogm AddType video/ogg .ogv AddType video/ogg .ogg AddType video/webm .webm AddType audio/webm .weba AddType video/mp4 .mp4 AddType video/x-m4v .m4v
Sometimes it’s that easy
