I am using this following html5 video tag to play various file formats of the same video on different browsers. On my local machine all the videos are playing fine but after uploading them, firefox cannot play movie.ogv on the online server.
If you are on an Apache webserver then you would place an .htaccess directive either in the root directory or in each directory where .ogv files are stored. The code (which I have not tested) should be:
AddType video/ogg .ogv
If you are on some other type of webserver I can't help you.

thank you for your info. I think I have an issue with Firefox and my server: the code works file in every browser but when I try to see it in Firefox, it keeps loading. Here is one thing: When I copy the full URL of my video and paste it in Firefox, instead of watching the video in the browser, I get an "you have chosen to open video.org" pop up window. Is there a problem with my server? because I can do the same thing with other videos (from other websites) and they work fine. will the .htaccess fix this issue? Thank you in advance. JP
