i'm using Jplayer which is a Jquery audio/video player to embed files on pages.
I'm uploading video files .m4v and .ogv cos' seems that Jplayer supports only that kind of files (correct me if i'm wrong).

FF, Opera and Chrome work fine with ogv files, Safari needs m4v to play video, but what about IE7? Does it work with .mp4 only or..?

How can i get this player working on IE7 if the player don't support
mp4 and IE/ dont support m4v? I'm bit confused, if somebody can gimme a help i'll be very glad!

I don't use frameworks including jQuery because they don't do what they were intended to do.

Regardless you're stuck having to use a plug-in for IE7 and forget about having the same codec work across Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer as they don't support any single same codec. Microsoft declared they would only support one codec in IE9 that only Hollywood wants.

The best answer available to get audio working cross-browser is Flash which for all it's security vulnerabilities is still much more reliable for cross-browser and cross-platform multimedia presentations in browsers.
