I have "performed" my frst venture into html5 video using the video for everyone and it works well in IE, Opera, Saf, Chrome, FF.

I have one small question - Safari (at least on my windows laptop) seems to want to download the whole darn video before it shows the first frame, or the buttons work - all the others stream it in the way I was expecting.

Has anyone got any ideas why - or more important how I get it to work more effectively!

Here's the code

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
	<!-- MP4 must be first for iPad! -->
	<source src="http://www.visievoorisrael.nl/images/stories/jos01/video/rootsAndReflections002b.mp4video.mp4" type="video/mp4" /> <!--Safari / iOS video    -->
	<source src="http://www.visievoorisrael.nl/images/stories/jos01/video/rootsAndReflections002.theora.ogv" type="video/ogg" /> <!-- Firefox / Opera / Chrome10 -->
	<!-- fallback to Flash: -->

Thanks in advance


I have sorted this now - apprently with some encoders the meta data for mp4's is put at the end of the file. I used a little application called QTIndexSwapper2 which was a breeze and it all works now
