I am trying to embed a video into my web page. The page was created in dreamweaver cs4. Here is the code inserted into my page:
<embed src="video/Oaknoll - BL6512250 Purple HD-FINAL.mp4" width="500" height="300" scale="aspect" controller="true"></embed>
When I view the page, I can’t see the video at all in Firefox. In Chrome and IE all I see is a white box with a large Q in the middle of the box and a question mark in the middle of the Q.
You can view the page at http://www.oaknoll.com
Any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?
This is where you are linking to with that code.
The file is a 404. The video is not there. Are you sure the video is there where it’s supposed to be? Double check
Yes, the video is in the “video” folder on the server. I just changed the name to "oaknoll_video_jan_2015.mp4 because I thought maybe it was the spaces in the original name that was causing the problems. But still not seeing it…
I try embedding your image via HTML5 video and the video is still 404.
Something is preventing your video from being shown. It’s a 404. The video still isn’t found.
Can you give me the absolute URL for the image? It’s supposed to be this. But it’s a 404.

<video width="500" height="300" controls="">
<source src="/video/oaknoll_video_jan_2015.mp4" type="video/mp4">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
It may be that you need to enable those formats on your server (this is a common issue). Try adding this to your site’s main
#Video MIME Types:
AddType video/m4v .m4v
