> ... in Student mode I get the following error: No video with supported format and MIME type found.

What is the file extension of the video?
Or is this a Camtasia video, or similar, which is typically launched within a .html file and requires ancillary files to function correctly?  

If so, a solution may be to include allow tags for each of the ancillary files in the appropriate html files which are containers for the video, e.g., 

<allow src="/res/purdue/  -- some path -- /scripts/config_xml.js">
<allow src="/res/purdue/  -- some path -- /scripts/player-min.js">

Can you provide the URL for this video in Resource Space, i.e., /res/purdue/ ...

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] Video Viewing Problem

Hi everyone,

My students are not able to view a video I have posted on my LON-CAPA sections. This video is posted in my author space, and published. If I try to play it in Course Coordinator mode it works fine, but in Student mode I get the following error: No video with supported format and MIME type found.

Our LON-CAPA specialist has taken another job, so he is not available, and I’m sure the IT folks in general are buried right now. I have received no feedback from IT that they are even looking at the problem, and am hoping this is something easy that I can fix, but I am puzzled. Anyone recognize the symptom and underlying cause?
