    Playing a movie/DVD on a website

    I'm trying to play a movie (ripped from a DVD using handbreak to mp4 format, then using Miro to convert to webm) on a website - it works fine in Firefox and Chrome, but IE6-IE9 just displays a black screen.

    I'm using video.js but the Flash fallback was not activating, I believe this is because it was trying to view the external .swf file which I've now hosted locally (it's on https) but I still cannot get the video to run in IE:

    https://secure.photofileltd.co.uk/ne...php?page=video

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated, unfortunately they have said they don't want the video hosted on YouTube or Vimeo... I've found a few solutions but they are not free for commercial use, or have huge watermarks.

    Thanks!

    Since this is about the technical aspects, I'm going to move this over to a different section where it's likely to get you more help.
