It works locally but not on the web. Called godaddy and they said that nothing wrong with the hosting account most likely its a quirk in IE9 for some reason.Please Help,Why?? When I play it locally it says this (look at picture attachment).
And I reset the browser to default setting.when played locally

Works locally when I get rid of the absolute link( www.sample.com/movie/sample.mp4) to a relative (/movie/sample.mp4).
But not online still Frustrating.

What does the console say?

Is the online version also using the relative link? If yes, did you again clean your cache after uploading the version with the relative link?

Yes but it only works locally not on the the web.I just switched to hostgator for hosting and it works fine now the mp4 videos wow!!! It must be the godaddy hosting going to call them.it must be that ie9 it more strict than other browsers.I think that the global mime type for mp4 it wrong. Hostgator is mint linux.what can I do I love godaddy hosting when I add the mime type it crashes the server, they said it already globaly entered.

Well godaddy  gives me the runaround.I just give up I'm on hostgator now and I'm switching my domains to hover ,one already transferred. There's no mp4 video mime type you have to add it but it crashes the server. There's a .mp4 tag but that's for audio. Try adding .mp4 type video/mp4 to the web.config file if not create one.love hostgator and hover and not looking back. You guys are soo helpful if I ever need help your the ones ill call first.thanks
