Using HTML5 video tag with IE8

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”chrome=1″>

<video src=”1.ogv” controls=”controls” width=”640″ height=”480″>
your browser needs an update to support html5
to enable html5 install Google’s <a href=”; target=”new”>Chrome frame</a> and refresh this page.

  1. Dude, really? Video on IE8 through chromeframe? I mean, it might work, but it should be obvious why that is not necessarily the best idea ever. And this coming from a die-hard Chrome fan who is neck-deep in the MS/.NET world.

  2. Fernando, as much as I would like everybody to upgrade, it ultimately is not my choice. Likely we will have people using IE8 in office environments, at home and in school environments for another two years. If your website is a business site you may not be able to do much else than support IE8.
