Embedded MP4 videos do not play back

I posted 6 MP4 videos to my website and only one of them plays.  Here is my code:

<video width="320" height="240" autoplay controls>

<source src="http://www.website.com/video.mp4" type="video/mp4">

</video>

The videos were encoded with Premiere Pro, H.264, High Quality 480p SD.  The message where the video should be says: "No video with supported format and MIME type found."  

When I go to the videos location on my website, I get a 404 error.

How can I fix this?

Thank you in advance.

John

There is no file named "test2.mp4" in the root of your site on the server.

Is your mp4 file stored inside a folder on the server?

What is the exact code you're using?

<source src="http://www.website.com/video.mp4" type="video/mp4"> is obviously a sample.

There is no file called "test.mp4" in the root of your server either.

Can you post a screenshot showing us your Remote Folder in DW?

There is only a YouTube video on your page. No MP4. YouTube carries far more bloat than a plain html5 video, but you might want to use it until you figure out how to work with video files. Any problem you had prior to using YouTube is likely to do with a simple failure to actually upload the file, or the fact that your server is not configured to support the required mime type.

Does your hosting plan support MP4 videos?  Some budget hosting plans don't.
