See PHI633. An install reports that a video embeds and plays correctly in Safari, but not in Chrome.
To reproduce this issue, download this video:
Now, create two HTML files:
<video controls> <source src="movie.mov" type="video/quicktime"> </video>
<video controls> <source src="movie.mov" type="video/mp4"> </video>
Open both HTML files in Chrome.
- The good.html file embeds and plays the video.
- The bad.html file does not play the video.
The MIME type of this file, as determined by file, is correct:
$ file --mime-type movie.mov movie.mov: video/quicktime
Chrome can clearly play the file and just chooses not to.
