The play button on this page:

Doesn't work. Clicking the video works, but not the play button. How do we fix this?

Doesn't matter, Firefox does not support MPG4, it needs WEBM format.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Try...
<video width="480" height="260" poster="../../publicvideo/PhotographerIntroPoster.png" preload  controls>
                          <source src="../../publicvideo/PhotographerIntro.mp4" type="video/mp4">
			  
			Your browser does not support video. Please use the latest version of Chrome, Safari, or IE
                    </video>

Open in new window

The text for non-support is virtually invisible in IE8.

preload controls doesn't seem to make a difference.

Thoughts?

What happens if you take out the poster image?  I haven't seen that in any of the demos that work in Chrome.
