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

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.

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