Problem displaying video

Post by radioron » Sun Nov 25, 2018 9:55 pm


I am a new WB14 user so this is perhaps a simple question for more experienced users but has perplexed me. When I insert a video (an MP4) into a page it will display and run properly in the WB14 Preview but doesn't when uploaded to the server. On the server the video either doesn't show at all (in Chrome) or shows only a tiny x for a file that didn't load in IE11 or Edge. I have tried inserting the video using different insertion tools (such as HTML5 video, Flash, WWB Video Player, etc.). I also uploaded the video to Youtube but inserting the video with the Youtube insertion tool also produces the same result when you go to the page on the server. I have also tried inserting the video in other formats like FLV and those attempts also produce these results.

What am I doing wrong? I'd appreciate any help you can offer!

Maybe the filename of the video is invalid?
