[html5] Video problem in IE9

I have a strange problem with the HTML5 video element. I have tested it in several browsers including IE9 and it all works fine when I run the webpage with the video locally.

But when I upload it to a webserver and run it from there I see the problem that the video won't work in IE9 on two out of three webservers.

One of them does not display the video at all and when I try to refer to the video object via getElementById("video") i get a JavaScript error saying "Object not supporting this method or property"


The other server displays just a black box with a red crosss and gives me a MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED error.


Does anybody have an idea of what the problem could be? Does the server need anything to allow the browser to play video?
